Question about Rheem RPQL060JEZ-RHLLHM6024JA 5 Ton 14.5 SEER Heat Pump Air Conditioner Split System
Posted by Anonymous on
You have a low voltage short. Likely on the condenser wire or condenser contactor. Take pic, remove low voltage at condenser, tape wires separate and replace fuse. If fuse holds you probably need a contactor, if not, let us know!

Replace the fuse with a light bulb. You should be able to take some measurements now to find the fault.

Not for sure what your root cause was and I know it's a little late but I just suffered this same exact scenario on the same water heater. Storms came through, power went out, power came back on and the water heater keeps blowing the 3 amp fuses now. I removed all the cables and plugged them back in one at a time. When I plugged in the Fan Motor connector the fuses blew. Installed new fuses with the connector out, the Fan Motor was putting out 150 VDC through the connector port (on main control). I pulled the control from the unit and Q1 is visible blown and disintegrated on the control board. Obvious control design issue. I've ordered a new control and will put a surge protector on the heater now when the new control comes in. Very disappointed that this was not caught in controls testing within the manufacturers facility. New control is not very cheap. Half the cost of a new Heater. Hopefully the Fan Motor survived the high voltage with the fuses blowing. I'm putting this here for anyone else that suffers the same issue on this water heater or the Richmond equivalents as they use the same control.
