Question about Honeywell Air Conditioners
I had exactly the same problem. F4 code says the control valve has jammed --- but it hadn’t.
I ended up having to swap out the room controller and the base unit (I bought the pair since it was winter and I couldn’t ‘eff’ about)
On investigating (well, you have to don’t you?) I could find no obvious fault but did notice that a large electrolytic capacitor was across the actuator motor.
Since these things work by reversing the supply polarity to the motor to drive the actuator one way and the other it strikes me as strange that a polarity sensitive component, one that must be always connecter positive to positive, is used in the way that it is.
Bottom line, tough luck, mate. Replace the units.
