#256773 Reversing Valve

Posted by HVAC TECH on 02 June 2013 - 08:13 PM

It sounds like you got it running and that's great but from my experience if it happened once it will happen again. The reversing valve should not get stuck in the middle of the valve during normal operation. This is one of the leading causes of compressor failure on heatpumps. If the compressor was damaged while the system was running with the reversing valve stuck in the middle of the valve make sure that a new reversing valve is installed with the new compressor.
