OK that is all good.Do you have a volt meter?

What we need to do is see if we are getting 24v at the reversing valve solenoid in heat mode.

Since the unit energized reversing valve in cool mode, there should be o voltage at solenoid in heat mode.

Sorry sir. No volt meter. I didn't realize it was going to be technical. I thought it might be something simple. Can I refunded my money? Thanks for trying though

I understand.Often it is something simple like a wire in wrong place.Beyond this we would need tools to troubleshoot.
