Upon arrival found that the system wasnâ€™t heating. Checked inside air handler and found everything ok. Checked Tstat and found that the W wire wasnâ€™t connected. Connected wire and Tstat would say that it lost power. Disconnected wire and Tstat still said it had no power. Checked incoming 24v to Tstat and it was present. Checked continuity through wires and every was good. Manually turned on system and heat strips were coming on. System has a bad nest thermostat that need to be replaced. Also found that the disconnect outside has been straight wired through which is not code. Disconnect will need to be replaced. Found that the contactor was pitted pretty bad and the capacitor was reading 38/60mfd which is bad. Emailed estimate over to to make repairs.
Performed a three system maintenance checking heating. Checked all electrical, mechanical and safety components, checked heat exchangers, gas pressures and cleaned flame sensors. All systems are operating properly at this time. I did find that the capacitor for the master bedroom blower was reading 2.5/5 mfd. recommended replacing. Joy wanted to think about it since sheâ€™s considering replacing system in spring. Emailed estimate over to replace capacitor.

Manager said back half of store isn't cooling. Found rtu1 (dining area) with a bad compressor on circuit 2 and circuit 1 was a little low on 410a refrigerant. Circuit 2 may be low as well. Hot gas line appears to have been repaired multiple times. Found screw wedged in contactor to keep circuit 2 compressor running. Need to replace compressor, do leak search on both circuits, and clean condensing coil. Once repairs are done will be able to troubleshoot system further. Rtu 2 (kitchen/dining) circuit 1 is running but circuit 2 is empty of 410a. Need to pressure system with nitrogen and find leak(s). Compressor ohmed out ok but don't know if circuit has any other issues. Once leak is found/repaired will be able to troubleshoot further. Rtu3 transformer was tripped. Reset transformer and ran system through cooling cycle, checked amps, checked refrigerant charge, and checked for any low voltage shorts. Unit ran through cooling and transformer never tripped out. Rtu3 is cooling at this ti
Upon arrival found upstairs unit off. Turned system on and checked inside unit. Found everything operational but filter was caved in. Pulled filter out and filter didnâ€™t appear dirty but once light shines through you could see where filter was getting clogged up. Took filter out and checked pressures outside. Pressures looked ok but sub cooling was low. Outdoor temp was 68* covered condenser and pressures rose up like they should. Subcool went up from 1.7 to 11 and superheat went from 16 to 4. Checked all duct work and dampers, ductwork was sealed up properly and all dampers were open. Checked blower speed and found it on the high speed. Tried adding a little Freon to see if sh&sc would get better and it dropped super heat to 14 and subcool to a 2.6. Took sensing bulb off and rechecked pressures and pressures did not adjust system has a bad txv. Coil was replaced last year in October. Coil still under one year warranty. Will order txv from Lennox. Part ordered in Allen on will call.
Gave estimates to replace upstairs system, gave pricing for a 3.5 14seer 4 16 seer 4 20 seer. Homeowner want availability on 16 seer 2 stage heat/cool. Also homeowner wanted to use a WiFi Honeywell thermostat instead of the nest. Plenums are staying. New whip, armaflex and disconnect and new pad. New drain pan with float switch.
Upon arrival found downstairs disconnect turned off. Turned system on and checked unit. Checked filter and air flow, checked pressures and systems txv was not metering the refrigerant correctly, went to Lennox, pumped system down, replaced filter dryer, pressure tested, pulled vacuum down to 500 microns, purged system and released charge back into system. Pressures looked a lot better and line temps did too. System is now cooling properly at this time. Done under warranty.
Performed a two system maintenance checking cooling. Checked inside units amp draws, drains, mechanical and electrical components and then checked outdoor units pressures amp draws and capacitors. Found that the downstairs system was low on Freon. And recommended a start assist for the upstairs unit. Gave recommendations to replace downstairs and upstairs units. Also gave recommended repairs.
Upon arrival found upstairs unit not cooling. Checked inside unit and found coil frozen. Checked filter and as soon as I removed filter there was a drastic difference in air flow. Filter was clogged pretty bad. Inserted new customer supplied filter. Line set was frozen as well. Shut down outside unit and left blower running. Will need to return once system has thawed out. Explained to homeowner that if filter was the cause of the issue there will be a service fee. Upon arrival turned condenser on for upstairs and checked pressures, pressures were good and noticed the the compressor for downstairs unit was making a funny sound. Checked pressures and found it low, recommended leak search and homeowner approved. Performed leak search and used my sniffer on the coil. Sniffer detected a leak on the bottom left side of coil. Homeowner approved warranty coil. Office will call to get time set up to replace coil. Homeowner wants to pay for coil and leak search at the same time.
Warranty Coil Replacement.
Upon arrival could hear unit making thumping noise on start up. Checked outdoor unit and found that the contactor was burnt up pretty bad. Replaced contactor and sound dampen down. Moved start wire from contactor to capacitor for start relay and that didnâ€™t do anything. Took start assist off of unit and sound went away. Removed start assist and left with customer. Customer would like to speak with office about invoice.
