The Home Smithy :

Not necessairily please stand by and I will upload the service manual for your unit. There are diagnostic proceedures in it that will help you determine the cause of the problem. Thank you.

Customer:

We have the manual and did not find anything in it about this situation

Customer:

Any other ideas? Or since it is not in the manual you are not sure?

The Home Smithy :

If the information is not in the manual and you have followed the diagnostics as indicated then it will require hands on diagnostics by a trained tech.

The Home Smithy :

There is one trick that you can do to see if the system is weak or just has a restriction in it. That would be to remove the unit and invert it for a few minuets. This is a last ditch effort before replaceing the unit.
