Customer Question

Sanyo KHS 1232 split system heat pump. No longer heats or cools properly. Runs for a brief while then goes "idle." Turning off and back on using remote starts unit briefly then it goes idle again. Had an HVAC guy look at it and he added Freon, but it didn't really repair the problem. He offered to research it but at the time I didn't want to spend any more money. Any suggestions? Note: remote had battery replaced. Also, fan alone runs fine. It's only a problem in heat or cool mode.

Did the unit work fine for a time after tech charged unit?
