JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: Been a service tech has for over 20 yrs owner of a company for the past 7yrs I installed a new 5 ton York condensing unit 410a to replace an existing 5 ton carrier 410a condensing unit the comp had a rattle to it on in tial start up and failed with in 48hrs returned with a warrnty comp that comp ran forms weeks and then failed the failed was due to the scroll comp was not pumping . So I figured that it might have been an issue with the txv the owner wanted to replace the airhandler and coil to Match the condensing unit for efficiency so this is what I did. And replaced the compressor. Nm ow not even 24hrs later the co mm p isn't pumping again. I use the imperial Eastman manifold gauges and I used the the profile part of the gauges so I could dial it in and very thing was right on the numbers or very close to it with in a pound or a half a degree when I left .

Hi, how are you? What pressures were you running when it was operating? Can you tell me the kind of current it was drawing? Also, are the compressors failing mechanically or electrically? Tell me a little bit about the conditions of the installation as well. Thanks.
