Just changed out the reversing valve in a goodman heat pump.

Just changed out the reversing valve in a goodman heat pump. charged with reclaimed R-22 from the unit and adjusted to factory charge of 220 oz. The unit suction is about 30 and liquid about 150 in cooling. Again the only thing I did was change out the reversing valve. It almost acts like its low on charge.JA: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings?

We have a 9 year old Goodman heat pump system in our

Hi,we have a 9 year old Goodman heat pump system in our residential home 0f about 2800 sq ft and have been told that the coils are leaking and should be replaced or a complete new system put in. We live in the Southeast. The new system that he suggested is a "Ruud Inverter" heat pump system. Please help me with this: 1. What is a Ruud Inverter system? Do all Ruud systems have this as part of current technology or is it something you install extra to a system? 2. If we get a new system put in what kind of very efficient and reliable system is recommended. Brand name suggestions are appreciated. 3. What kind of reasonable cost might we expect for purchase and installation of a better system. 4. Any other thoughts appreciated. Thanks much.

I have a goodman heat pump. The fan motor in the condenser

I have a goodman heat pump. The fan motor in the condenser unit comes on but there is am intermittent hum. When it hums, the fan motor slows. The hum only lasts about 3 seconds, then motor speeds up. Unit was checked 6 months ago and was told that fan motor was starting to go as they could see oil on the fan blades. I have a new motor to replace it, but wondering if that is the problem or is it capacitor?

My heat pump just went out. I've had two technicians

Good Morning, My heat pump just went out. I've had two technicians diagnose the heat pump and they both said that I'd have to replace it. It keeps blowing fuses after about 20 minutes of running. The technicians also said that my air handler looked great and is fine. The system is a 26 year old 3.5 ton Ruud split system AC with R22 refrigerant. I am only going to be in the house for another 3 months but I live in Arizona so I have no choice but to get it fixed. My question is what type/brand heat pump would be compatible with a 26 year old Ruud air handler?
