    Well yeah, that’s the problem plain as day, the bulb isn’t insulated!

    The TRUE highest cost system is the system not installed properly...

    Do you go to a boat repairman with a sinking boat, and tell him to put in a bigger motor when he tells you to fix the holes?

    Ha! You might be on to something. It's a lot easier to insulate that suction line when that stupid thing-a-ma-jiggy isn't in the way. There... That's way better!

    Corrosion on the bulb has me thinking it was installed correctly BEFORE the insulation was replaced.

    Maybe they did that to try to get a txv that was running out of bulb charge to open enough.

    We used to have a unit at work that the bulb was pulled out of the cabinet for that reason till we could get a replacement for that reason ..... weirdly it took a couple years till it was replaced. When it was finally pulled the strainer was mostly plugged.
