Brand New 2 weeks old 4 ton Trane compressor leaks a lot of water onto pad


If the unit is running in cold weather than there is ice building up on the coils located outside. This is normal in that the unit is running in heat pump mode heating inside and cooling outside, After the unit detects the ice build up it briefly reverses the cycle heating the outside coils melting(defrosting) the ice which you observe as water on the pad.

The video gives you an example of the defrost cycle!

2003 ford windstar spark plug wires diagram


I\'m assuming you have the 3.8 engine,although i believe the firing order is the same on all there v6 sideways mounted front wheel drive Windstars. That firing order is 1-4-2-5-3-6, with 1-2-3 going from left to right on the back side of the engine and 4-5-6 left to right on the front side of the engine.Looking straight down at the coil from the front of the car,you\'ll see 2 rows of coil terminals.The row on the right side is 1-2-3 going from top to bottom,row on left side is 6-5-4 going from top to bottom. Hook the number 1 coil terminal to the number 1 spark plug ,being careful to use the spark plug wire that is closest in length to the length you need. If your just replacing wires,yuo shouldn\'t have to much trouble. If your nreplacing the spark plugs you will find the ones in the rear,especially the number 2 [the middle one} are pretty difficult without removing the cowling. A total pain brought to you by the designers at Ford!

Either lack of refrigerant, stopped up metering device or capillary tube/s, or lack of air flow (due to bad blower motor, or dirty indoor coil)

I have a Rheem heat pump/air handler; it draws 2.9amps with only the fan running, 13amps when the heat pump is running and 38amps with the heat strips on. My question is why the unit draws that many amps...


Sounds like it must be about a 2.5- 3 ton system. The 13amps has to be the compressor draw -normal. and 38 on the strips- normal. 2.9 fan -normal.

You may want to check your wiring to see where the outside unit gets its power. Theres nothing inside that can draw 13 amps. That almost has to be the compressor power wire.

My 4 ton goodman heat pump goes into defrost and than after the cycle return in cooling stage at least the indoor coil starts freezing is the expansion valve working corectly


The reason for indoor coil freezing due to coil dust blocked-(Clean coil). 2. Less rpm of indoor f.motor. (Replace capacitor). 3. Short of gas. (Find leak and repair and then recharge gas.)

Just replaced inside fan motor on 5 ton Rheem heat pump. Fan will not spin freely. What to do?


1) remove power from the unit
2) remove panels enough to see where the squirrel cage fan is binding
3) these units are normally adjustable by loosening the bracket which holds the fan motor and simply moving it one way or another just a bit. (which is why understanding which end of the fan is binding is a GREAT second step, right after step 1, remove power from the unit, that includes shutting the emergency heat coils breakers OFF.
Don't worry, you're close to the solution!
