If you had a major surge then chances are the entire outdoor PCB and possibly the inverter transformer need to be replaced. I'm not as familiar with the Friedrichs but most mini-splits use flash code errors on both the outdoor and indoor units, occasionally with the common codes printed on one of the outdoor service panels, usually only in the service manual (supplied to authorized dealers and sometimes available from manufacturers websites).
Hi, this is a 1-ton cooling unit per your numbers. If they just installed it and the line side (120 volts) is good but nothing on the secondary low voltage side, they should have replaced the transformer themselves? If it is a split system, it is normally on all splits to be located in the indoor unit control section. I can't tell you exactly, but look where the 120 volts come into the indoor unit and the high voltage wiring should be connected to it then stepped down to lower voltage. It may have a fuse on the circuit board that they blew when installing it. If you are not familar with electrical, I wouldn't attempt to make these repairs. You can look for a small plug in type fuse to see if it blew, it looks like one on your automobile. I would call this installer out and its there job to do this!! These transformers look different, there not all the same, but will have a black and white wire coming in, and several colored wires coming out for low voltage. It will be in the indoor unit. Keep me posted on what you find or if you need more help. How long ago was the unit installed? Shastalaker7
The most common reason is that the electrical power is not supply to the air conditioners. If the air conditioner operate for period of time then only it trips. Then , it could be possible that the MCB is under-sized. Please check the recommended MCB size. Rate it.
Small internal fuse. You may need a service tech to check this out. I buy fuses for them at Radio Shack. Sometimes there are more than one board bit it is the large amin board where the transformer wires hook into the board. If you have trouble just ask for a free estimate that way you know upfront what the cost is ,... Rus
YOUR the first person that has gave enough information to help in a WHILE THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
Start all over from first I'm betting that you need a fuse in both sides of the transformer until you find the real reason they burn up.
A solenoid valve that sticks can cause the transformer to blow but so can a lot of other things, namely anything in the control circuit that uses the 24V power. A relay or contactor that doesn't pull in or a defective defrost control, a shorted wire from the thermostat.
I'm wondering if you have what we call a package heat pump meaning the
both the indoor blower and out door compressor & fan are in the
same section out side? OR is your a split system with an indoor
section and an outdoor section?
I'm betting on the split section. In some miss-matched systems (like a Lennox indoor and a GMC out door for example) Some of the origonal Lennox heat pumps had an out door and an indoor transformer. If these trans formers were not "phased" together it could cause a problem like your having. Now you just have it in the heatign mode if I read between the lines correctly. So it makes snece that it's something with the heat. The out door unit can opperate withits own 24v but if you have back up heat inside (gas or electric Im thinking you have electric) the indoor section will come on atfter a few more degrees of heat loss (2-4'F). This is where the transformer inside will buck the one outside and somethjing has to give. The weakest point.
From what ive been told by some of the old hands I've been around if the high volt side burns out look for a low volt problem if the low volt burns out look for a line volt problem.
If this has 2 transformers like I suspect try the fuse on both sides but remember the one is hot and will remain hot all time on 220V or 1 leg of it or it might remind you. To phase these transfoprmers I believe you swtich the main lines L1 & L2 at either of the transformers. Now 1 more thing the indoor section may be using ground on the low volt side as a path for 1 side of the transformer. I believe you will ahve to do same for the other transformer too.
Hope this helps Id really like to know what you find and do. Please ask more and you give such detail I can follow you with little trouble. Please rate me as high as you can and good luck.
If nothing will come on check the breaker to the indoor section, check that the service switch by the in door section is on and the blower door cover is tightly closed. If all these junctions are transmitting power then it may be a burned out transformer. If you can check for 120v on the primary coil of the transformer and 24v on the secondary that would tell you where the problem is. If theres no voltage on either side then backtrack from the transformer on the 120v side till you find 120v. If theres 120v but no 24v your transformer secondary is burned out. If theres both then the problem is downstream from the transformer: circuit board 3amp fuse, loose wiring.
