yes, just replaced about a week ago
With the unit running...locate where the 2 copper pipes enter the indoor unit...one has black rubber insulation on it...move the rubber and feel the copper pipe at the cabibet entrance. Tell me what it feels like...warm, cold, dry, wet...etc.
ok sounds good, brb
its dry and just only as warm at the outside temperature
And the outdoor unit is running?
Ok...2 choices.....the fan in the top is running but the compressor in the bottom is not....and the other is major loss of freon. My guess is the start capacitor for the compressor is the first culprit. Of course it can a burned wire, bad compressor etc...but the capacitor is where I would start. Follow the wires from compressor and they will lead to an oval or round cylinder. See if the top is bulged or if any oil film. The capcitor is what starts the compressor.
