including solenoid valves.
!
CAUTION
UNIT DAMAGE HAZARD
Failure to follow this caution may result in equipment damage
or improper operation.
If ANY refrigerant tubing is buried, provide a 6–in (152.4
mm). vertical rise at service valve. Refrigerant tubing lengths
up to 36–in (914.4 mm). may be buried without further special
consideration. Do not bury lines longer than 36 in (914.4 mm).
Outdoor units may be connected to indoor section using accessory
tubing package or field–supplied refrigerant grade tubing of correct
size and condition. For tubing requirements beyond 80 ft,
substantial capacity and performance losses can occur. Following
the recommendations in the Residential Piping and Long Line
Guideline will reduce these losses. Refer to Table 1 for accessory
requirements. Refer to Table 2 for field tubing diameters.
There are no buried–line applications greater than 36 in. (914.4
mm)
If refrigerant tubes or indoor coil are exposed to atmosphere, they
must be evacuated to 500 microns to eliminate contamination and
moisture in the system.
Service Valves
Service valves are closed and plugged from the factory. Outdoor
units are shipped with a refrigerant charge sealed in the unit. Leave
the service valves closed until all other refrigerant system work is
complete or the charge will be lost. Leave the plugs in place until
line set tubing is ready to be inserted.
Heat pumps require a piston metering device in the liquid service
valve for proper heating operation. Piston is shipped in the piston
body of the liquid service valve, temporarily held in place with a
plastic cap. Do not remove the plastic cap until line set tubing is
ready to be installed.
Refer to Fig. 4 and follow these steps for piston installation:
1. Remove plastic cap holding piston in piston body of liquid
service valve.
2. Check that piston size (stamped on side of piston) matches
with number listed on unit rating plate. Return piston to
piston body of liquid service valve (either direction).
3. Find plastic bag taped to unit containing copper adapter
tube, brass nut, and plastic washer.
4. Install plastic washer in the seat inside piston body.
5. Fit brass nut onto adapter tube and install tube onto liquid
service valve. Tighten nut finger tight, then wrench

S Do not overcharge system with refrigerant.
S Do not operate unit in a vacuum or at negative pressure.
S Do not disable low pressure switch in scroll compressor
applications.
S Compressor dome temperatures may be hot.
Follow these steps to properly start up system:
1. After system is evacuated, fully open liquid and vapor service valves.
2. Unit is shipped with valve stem(s) front seated (closed) and
caps installed. Replace stem caps after system is opened to
refrigerant flow (back seated). Replace caps finger–tight and
tighten with wrench an additional 1/12 turn.
3. Close electrical disconnects to energize system.
4. Set room thermostat at desired temperature. Be sure set
point is below indoor ambient temperature.
5. Set room thermostat to HEAT or COOL and fan control to
ON or AUTO mode, as desired. Operate unit for 15
minutes. Check system refrigerant charge.
6
Turn on power to indoor and outdoor units. Transformer is
energized.
Cooling
On a call for cooling, thermostat makes circuits R–O and R–Y, and
R–G. Circuit R–O energizes reversing valve, switching it to
cooling position. Circuit R–Y energizes contactor, starting outdoor
fan motor and compressor circuit. R–G energizes indoor unit
blower relay, starting indoor blower motor on high speed.
When thermostat is satisfied, its contacts open, de–energizing
contactor and blower relay. Compressor and motors should stop.
NOTE: If indoor unit is equipped with a time–delay relay circuit,
the indoor blower will run an additional 90 seconds to increase
system efficiency.
Heating
On a call for heating, thermostat makes circuits R–Y and R–G.
Circuit R–Y energizes contactor, starting outdoor fan motor and
compressor. Circuit R–G energizes indoor blower relay, starting
blower motor on high speed.
Should temperature continue to fall, R–W2 is made through
second–stage room thermostat. Circuit R–W2 energizes a relay,
bringing on first bank of supplemental electric heat and providing
electrical potential to second heater relay (if used). If outdoor
temperature falls below setting of outdoor thermostat (field
installed option), contacts close to complete circuit and bring on
second bank of supplemental electric heat.
When thermostat is satisfied, its contacts open, de–energizing
contactor and relay. All heaters and motors should stop.
Defrost
The defrost control is a time/temperature control which includes a
field selectable (quick–connects located at board edge) time period
between defrost cycles (30, 60, or 90 minutes), factory set to either
60 or 90 minutes.
The electronic defrost timer sequence is enabled when the T1 input
on the board is energized. The timer starts only when the defrost
thermostat is closed and the contactor is energized.
Defrost mode is identical to cooling mode except that outdoor fan
motor stops and second–stage heat is turned on to continue
warming conditioned spaces.
To initiate defrost, the defrost thermostat must be closed. This can
be accomplished as follows:
1. Turn off power to outdoor unit.
2. Disconnect outdoor fan motor lead from OF2 on control
board (see Fig. 12). Tape lead to prevent grounding.
3. Restart unit in heating mode, allowing frost to accumulate
on outdoor coil.
4. After a few minutes in heating mode, liquid line temperature should drop below closing point of defrost thermostat
(approximately 30°F/–1.11°C).
5. Short between speedup terminals with a flat–blade screwdriver. This reduces the timing sequence to 1/25th of original time. (See Table 4.)
6. When you hear reversing valve change position, remove
screwdriver immediately; otherwise, control will terminate
normal 10–minute defrost cycle in approximately 2
seconds.
NOTE: Length of defrost cycle is dependent upon length of time
it takes to remove screwdriver from test pins after reversing valve
has shifted.
7. Unit will remain in defrost for remainder of defrost cycle
time or until defrost thermostat reopens at approximately
65°F (18.33°C) coil temperature of liquid line.
8. Turn off power to outdoor unit and reconnect fan motor
lead to OF2 on control board.

Charging method is shown on information plate inside unit. For
TXV, use subcooling method. For piston, use superheat method.
To properly check or adjust charge, conditions must be favorable
for subcooling or superheat charging. Favorable conditions exist
when the outdoor temperature is between 70_F and 100_F
(21.11_C and 37.78_C), and the indoor temperature is between
70_F and 80_F (21.11_C and 26.67_C). Follow the procedure
below:
Unit is factory charged for 15ft (4.57 m) of lineset. Adjust charge
by adding or removing 0.6 oz/ft (.018 kg/m) of 3/8 liquid line
above or below 15ft (4.57 m) respectively.
For standard refrigerant line lengths (80 ft/24.38 m or less), allow
system to operate in cooling mode at least 15 minutes. If conditions
are favorable, check system charge by super heat method for fixed
metering device and subcooling method for TXV. If any
adjustment is necessary, adjust charge slowly and allow system to
operate for 15 minutes to stabilize before declaring a properly
charged system. Refer to Table 5 or 6 for additional subcooling
required.
If the indoor temperature is above 80_F (26.67_C), and the
outdoor temperature is in the favorable range, adjust system charge
by weight based on line length and allow the indoor temperature to
drop to 80_F (26.67_C) before attempting to check system charge
by subcooling method as described above.
If the indoor temperature is below 70_F (21.11_C), or the outdoor
temperature is not in the favorable range, adjust charge for line set
length above or below 15ft (4.57 m) only. Charge level should then
be appropriate for the system to achieve rated capacity. The charge
level could then be checked at another time when the both indoor
and outdoor temperatures are in a more favorable range.
NOTE: If line length is beyond 80 ft (24.38 m) or greater than 20
ft (6.10 m) vertical separation, See Residential Piping and Long
Line Guideline for special charging requirements.
Units with Cooling Mode TXV
Units installed with cooling mode TXV require charging by the
subcooling method.
1. Operate unit a minimum of 10 minutes before checking
charge.
2. Measure liquid service valve pressure by attaching an accurate gage to service port.
3. Measure liquid line temperature by attaching an accurate
thermistor type or electronic thermometer to liquid line near
outdoor coil.
4. Refer to unit rating plate for required subcooling temperature.
5. Refer to Table 7. Find the point where required subcooling
temperature intersects measured liquid service valve pressure.
6. To obtain required subcooling temperature at a specific liquid line pressure, add refrigerant if liquid line temperature
is higher than indicated or reclaim refrigerant if temperature
is lower. Allow a tolerance of 3_F.
Units with Indoor Pistons
Units installed with indoor pistons require charging by the
superheat method.
The following procedure is valid when indoor airflow is within
21 percent of its rated CFM.
1. Operate unit a minimum of 10 minutes before checking
charge.
2. Measure suction pressure by attaching an accurate gage to
suction valve service port.
3. Measure suction temperature by attaching an accurate thermistor type or electronic thermometer to suction line at service valve.
4. Measure outdoor air dry–bulb temperature with thermometer.
5. Measure indoor air (entering indoor coil) wet–bulb temperature with a sling psychrometer.
6. Refer to Table 8. Find outdoor temperature and evaporator
entering air wet–bulb temperature. At this intersection, note
superheat. Where a dash (––) appears on the table, do not
attempt to charge system under these conditions or refrigerant slugging may occur. Charge must be weighted in,
adding or removing 0.6 oz/ft of 3/8 liquid line above or below 15 ft (4.57 m) respectively.
7. Refer to Table 9. Find superheat temperature located in item
6 and suction pressure. At this intersection, note suction line
temperature.
8. If unit has a higher suction line temperature than charted
temperature, add refrigerant until charted temperature is
reached.
9. If unit has a lower suction line temperature than charted
temperature, reclaim refrigerant until charted temperature is
reached.
10. When adding refrigerant, charge in liquid form into suction
service port using a flow–restricting device.
11. If outdoor air temperature or pressure at suction valve
changes, charge to new suction line temperature indicated
on chart.
12. Optimum performance will be achieved when the operating
charge produces 5_ to 6_F suction superheat at suction
service valve with 82_F outdoor ambient and 80_F
(26.7_C) dry bulb (67_F / 19.4_C) wet bulb) indoor
temperature (DOE “B” test conditions) at rated airflow.
Heating Check Chart Procedure
To check system operation during heating cycle, refer to the
Heating Check Chart on outdoor unit. This chart indicates whether
a correct relationship exists between system operating pressure and
air temperature entering indoor and outdoor units. If pressure and
temperature do not match on chart, system refrigerant charge may
not be correct. Do not use chart to adjust refrigerant charge.

FINAL CHECKS
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
IMPORTANT: Before leaving job, be sure to do the following:
1. Ensure that all wiring is routed away from tubing and sheet
metal edges to prevent rub–through or wire pinching.
2. Ensure that all wiring and tubing is secure in unit before
adding panels and covers. Securely fasten all panels and
covers.
3. Tighten service valve stem caps to 1/12–turn past finger
tight.
4. Leave Owner’s Manual with owner. Explain system operation and periodic maintenance requirements outlined in
manual.
5. Fill out Dealer Installation Checklist and place in customer
file.
For continuing high performance and to minimize possible
equipment failure, periodic maintenance must be performed on this
equipment.
Frequency of maintenance may vary depending upon geographic
areas, such as coastal applications. See Users Manual for
information.
PURONR (R–410A) QUICK REFERENCE GUIDE
S Puron refrigerant operates at 50–70 percent higher pressures than R–22. Be sure that servicing equipment and replacement
components are designed to operate with Puron
S Puron refrigerant cylinders are rose colored.
S Recovery cylinder service pressure rating must be 400 psig, DOT 4BA400 or DOT BW400.
S Puron systems should be charged with liquid refrigerant. Use a commercial type metering device in the manifold hose when
charging into suction line with compressor operating
S Manifold sets should be 700 psig high side and 180 psig low side with 550 psig low–side retard.
S Use hoses with 700 psig service pressure rating.
S Leak detectors should be designed to detect HFC refrigerant.
S Puron, as with other HFCs, is only compatible with POE oils.
S Vacuum pumps will not remove moisture from oil.
S Do not use liquid–line filter driers with rated working pressures less than 600 psig.
S Do not leave Puron suction line filter driers in line longer than 72 hours.
S Do not install a suction–line filter drier in liquid line.
S POE oils absorb moisture rapidly. Do not expose oil to atmosphere.
S POE oils may cause damage to certain plastics and roofing materials.
S Wrap all filter driers and service valves with wet cloth when brazing.
S A factory approved liquid–line filter drier is required on every unit.
S Do NOT use an R–22 TXV or properly sized Puron piston metering device..
S If indoor unit is equipped with an R–22 TXV or piston metering device sized for R--22 application, it must be changed to a hard
shutoff Puron TXV.
S Never open system to atmosphere while it is under a vacuum.
S When system must be opened for service, recover refrigerant, evacuate then break vacuum with dry nitrogen and replace filter
driers. Evacuate to 500 microns prior to recharging.
