Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

Hi , I hope you can help me , I am an electrician living a remote part of New Zealand . A client of mine is using one of your units to heat their swimming pool and have been experiencing a problem with it .They have been trying without any luck to find someone who knows how to repair their unit in our area , so have asked me as their electrician to have a look at it . Namely they have lost temp control ? it either goes cold or just keeps heating up ? I suspect the thermostat control pot but would really appreciate some advice from the specialists . A wiring diagram would be helpful as well . Are the pots for the pool and spa interchangeable without effecting the operation of the unit ? The unit is a Scroll Heatwave model number H100 A ? RR ? H Serial number on the thermostat control pot is 198789 9841 ROC Thank you for your attention on this matter Kind regards Carl Gubb Carl Gubb Electrical 3303 State highway 25 , RD 1 Whitianga Phone: 07 866 0119 Mobile: 027 680 5570 Email: carl@cgubb.co.nz

SOURCE: intertherm heat pump

FIRST YOUR OUTSIDE UNIT PROVIDES HEAT BY USING A REVERSING VALVE TO CHANGE THE REFRIGERANT FLOW.THERE IS NO HEAT STRIPS OUTSIDE SECOND YOUR EMERGENCY HEAT TURNS ON ELECTRIC ELEMENTS INSIDE YOUR AIRHANDLER UNIT.IT SOUNDS LIKE SOMEONE HAS WIRED YOUR UNIT WRONG OR HAS THE THERMOSTAT SET IMPROPERLY.WHEN THE HEAT PUMP CANNOT SATTISFY THE SETPOINT THE THERMOSTAT IS SUPPOSED TO TURN ON YOUR ELEC. HEAT UNTILL THE LOAD HAS BEEN REACHED AND THE HEAT PUMP CAN CONTINUE TO MAINTAIN IT.

SOURCE: MY HEAT PUMP SYSTEM WILL NOT WORK IN EMERGENCY MODE

the thermostat sub base has a place to connect a wire usually white to energize the heat strips when you push the stat way hotter than the house temp. that is why the strips come on in normal heat. it also has a terminal that is only energized in emergency heat and it also should have a wire connected to it so that terminal can supply power to the strips when the stat is switched into emerg heat . you can identify the terminal from the wiring diagram and if need be jumper w2 wire over to the aux terminal and it will work. they both go back into the airhandler and power the same strips. w2..................................................................................................w2 in airhandler to strips or w2...jumper to aux......................................................................................................................w2 in airhandler to strips.

SOURCE: Wiring Diagram for Ruud Heat Pump

Unfortunately, the wiring diagrams for heat pumps are not so easy to come up with. The outdoor unit will have its own diagram, but may not include the indoor air handler and will probably not include the thermostat. That said, the orange wire is commonly run from the thermostat to the reversing valve in the outdoor unit. This wire is usually not connected to the indoor airhandler. The orange wire is usually used in a unit that has the reversing valve energized in cool. Ruud, however has its reversing valve energized in heat. Probably not useful but maybe helpful

SOURCE: burning up transformers

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.
