Is the out side fan supposed to be running? Both coils are located outside in the unit. The outter most coil would be the evaporator in heat mode with the innermost coil actting as the condenser. Or I may be all wrong and the outter coil hasnothing to do with heat mode.
I just need to know if I should turn the system back on if the outter fan is not running.
For defrost mode requires three conditions to be met.
deforst termiant switch closed
compressor run time 50-90 minutes
So if I just started the unit the last condition could not be met and defrost mode is not what it is in. If so then fan is supposed to be running , it isn't, and of course would explain ice. Correct?
I need to have a service person check my fan, correct?
and thank you you have been helpful and of course I am going to accept. I use this service last night and a VET donated her time. I do not expect you to and will gladly reemburse.
Sorry about the delay I lost my connection. So now the question is am I in defrost mode and having disconnected power the unit would not start up in that mode would it.
It seems it the fan and I need to get a service guy out here. if you agree we will finish here and I can get on the phone,.
