with about 70% humidity and I tested the HP in the normal heat mode. OMG what was I thinking. Gee the reversing valve operated normal and I had nice cool air being discharged from the outside condenser and nice warm air into the home.
So as you can see it the pic the unit did did not melt or go poof and disappear and it operated real normal when I switched it back to cooling.
Actually I don’t operate the unit in the normal heat mode just long enough to see if the reversing valve operates as intended.
This HP is not a pump down unit so why does it have a solenoid valve in the liquid line going to the A-coil???
