    Don't step on my favorite part of the Constitution just to point out your favorite part.

    Political Correctness is forced on you because you have forgotten decency.

    Technically speaking, they are all heat pumps.

    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    Trane package units are notorious for this.



    That's a factory 3ci drier on a 5 ton circuit. Let the condenser coils get dirty, and this'll usually happen

    Haha this reminds me, I had this guy that tried to fix his landlords heat pump by adding refrigerant because the indoor coil was icing up during heating operation. To top it off, I pulled 26lbs out the system, nameplate charge was like 6 or 7lbs.....would trip the HP switch immediately

    The root cause, the tstat was loose on the sub base, and was dropping the B output, making the unit go into cooling(rheem unit).
