GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT
The equipment covered in this manual is to be installed
by trained, experienced service and installation
technicians. All duct work, supply and return ducts,
must be properly sized for the design airflow
requirement of the equipment. ACCA is an excellent
guide to proper sizing. All duct work or portions thereof
not in the conditioned space should be properly
insulated in order to both conserve energy and prevent
condensation or moisture damage.
SHIPPING DAMAGE
Upon receipt of equipment, the carton should be
checked for external signs of shipping damage. If
damage is found, the receiving party must contact the
last carrier immediately, preferably in writing,
requesting inspection by the carrier’s agent.
FIELD INSTALLED HEATER PACKAGES
(OPTIONAL)
These packaged air conditioners are manufactured
without supplementary electric heaters. Supplementary
heaters are available for simple, fast field installation.
A separate power circuit is required for the
supplementary heaters.
IMPORTANT: Refer to Table 1 when designing duct
work for maximum available static pressure with heater
installed.
Refer to data shown in Table 3 and 4 for proper
application information on all available heater
combinations and what units they can be used with. It
also shows the applicable circuit ampacities, fuse size,
and wire size for each heater combination.
GENERAL
The refrigerant system is completely assembled and
charged. All internal wiring is complete.
The unit is designed for use with or without duct work.
Flanges are provided for attaching the supply and return
ducts.
These instructions explain the recommended method to
install the air cooled self-contained unit and the
electrical wiring connections to the unit.
These instructions and any instructions packaged with
any separate equipment required to make up the entire
system should be carefully read before beginning the
installation. Note particularly “Starting Procedure” and
any tags and/or labels attached to the equipment.
While these instructions are intended as a general
recommended guide, they do not supersede any national
and/or local codes in any way. Authorities having
jurisdiction should be consulted before the installation is
made.

INSTALLATION
LOCATION
GENERAL
The unit must be located outside, or in a well ventilated
area. It must not be in the space being heated or cooled.
A sound absorbing material should be considered if the
unit is to be installed in such a position or location that
might cause transmission of sound or vibration to the
living area or adjacent buildings.
SLAB MOUNTING
A minimum of 24 inches should be provided between
the coil inlet and any building surfaces. Provide a
minimum of three feet clearance on the service access
side of the unit. See Figure 2.
TYPICAL INSTALLATIONS
1. ROOF MOUNTED – The unit is mounted on a
sturdy base on the roof of the building. Return air to
the unit is brought through a single return grille
(grilles with built-in filters are best since they enable
easy access for filter changing). Return air ducts are
attached to the lower section of the front panel.
Supply air is brought from the unit to attic duct work
or to a furred down hall. Supply air duct is attached
to the top of the front panel.
In roof top installation, as in all installations, the air
conditioner must be level from side to side.
However, the unit should have a pitch along the
length to assure complete external drainage of
precipitation and of defrost condensate.
2. CRAWL SPACE – Duct work installed in crawl
space must be well insulated and provided with a
vapor barrier. In addition, the crawl space must be
thoroughly ventilated and provided with a good
vapor barrier as a ground cover. It is most desirable
to install the unit will be outdoors rather than inside
the crawl space, so that it will be readily accessible
for service.
3. SLAB MOUNTED AT GROUND LEVEL – This
type installation is ideal for homes with a slab floor
construction where a roof mounted unit is not
desired. The supply and return duct work can be run
through a furred closet space.
4. THROUGH THE WALL – This type installation
requires a suitable framework to be fabricated
capable of withstanding the unit weight. Normally
the unit will be insulated so as to minimize supply
and return duct work.
CAUTION: All outdoor duct work must be
thoroughly insulated and weatherproofed. All
attic duct work must be thoroughly insulated.
Two inch thick insulation with suitable vapor
barrier is recommended for both outdoor and
attic runs.

5. OTHER INSTALLATIONS – Many other
installations are possible with the packaged air
conditioner. No matter what the installation, always
consider the following facts:
A. Insure that the discharge air is not obstructed in
any way so as to cause operation difficulties.
B. The indoor coil drain pan is equipped with a
coupling that must be piped through a
condensate drain trap to a suitable drain.
C. Always mount the unit is such a position that it
may be easily reached for servicing and
maintenance.
D. Insure that the unit is clear so that proper air
flow over the outdoor coil will be maintained.
If this unit is operated in cooling below a 55° outdoor
ambient temperature, the installation of low ambient
controls (CMA-28) to unit is required.
CONDENSATE DRAIN TRAP
It is very important to provide a trap in the condensate
drain line to allow a positive liquid seal in the line and
assure correct drainage from the coil condensate pan.
Install condensate drain trap shown in Figure 8. Use
drain connection size or larger. Do not operate unit
without trap. Unit must be level or slightly inclined
toward drain. With a trap installed on a unit located in
an unconditioned area, water in the trap may freeze. It
is recommended that the trap material be of a type that
will allow for expansion of water when it freezes.
Prior thought should be given to return air location and
placement of the air filter(s). The air filter(s) must be of
adequate size and readily accessible to the operator of
the equipment. Filters must be adequate in size and
properly maintained for proper operation. If this is not
done, excessive energy use, poor performance, and
multiple service problems will result. It is impossible to
oversize air filters. Generous sizing will result in
cleaner air and coils as well as lower operating costs and
extend the time between required changes. Table 5
shows minimum filter areas and recommended filter
sizes. Actual filter sizes can vary with the installation
due to single or multiple returns utilizing a filter/grille
arrangement or being placed immediately ahead of the
indoor coil face in the return air duct.

WIRING – MAIN POWER
Refer to the unit rating plate for wire sizing information
and maximum fuse size. Each outdoor unit is marked
with a “Minimum Circuit Ampacity”. This means that
the field wiring used must be sized to carry that amount
of current. If field installed heaters are added to the
basic unit, a second separate power supply circuit will
be required. The heater rating plate located adjacent to
the basic unit rating plate will show the appropriate
circuit ampacity fuse size, etc. (Also see “Electrical
Specifications” on pages 5 & 7.) All models are
suitable for connection with copper wire only. These
instructions must be adhered to. Refer to the National
Electrical Code for complete current carrying capacity
data on the various insulation grades of wiring material.
The electrical specifications list fuse and wire sizes
(75°F copper) for all models including the most
commonly used heater sizes.
The unit rating plate lists a “Maximum Time Delay
Fuse” or “HACR” type circuit breaker that is to be used
with the equipment. The correct size must be used for
proper circuit protection and also to assure that there
will be no nuisance tripping due to the momentary high
starting current of the compressor.

NOTE: The voltage should be measured at the field
power connection point in the unit and while
the unit is operating at full load (maximum
amperage operating condition).
Five (5) wires should be run from thermostat subbase to
the 24V terminal board in the unit. A five conductor, 18
gauge copper, color-coded thermostat cable is
recommended. The connection points are shown in
Figure 6.

START UP
These units require R-410A refrigerant and Polyol Ester
oil.
performance. Refer to instructions for the cylinder that
is being utilized for proper method of liquid extraction.
GENERAL:
1. Use separate service equipment to avoid cross
contamination of oil and refrigerants.
SAFETY PRACTICES:
1. Never mix R-410A with other refrigerants.
2. Use recovery equipment rated for R-410A
refrigerant.
2. Use gloves and safety glasses, Polyol Ester oils can
be irritating to the skin, and liquid refrigerant will
freeze the skin.
3. Use manifold gauges rated for R-410A (800 psi/250
psi low).
3. Never use air and R-410A to leak check; the
mixture may become flammable.
4. R-410A is a binary blend of HFC-32 and HFC-125.
4. Do not inhale R-410A – the vapor attacks the
nervous system, creating dizziness, loss of
coordination and slurred speech. Cardiac
irregularities, unconsciousness and ultimate death
can result from breathing this concentration.
5. R-410A is nearly azeotropic - similar to R-22 and
R-12. Although nearly azeotropic, charge with
liquid refrigerant.
6. R-410A operates at 40-70% higher pressure than
R-22, and systems designed for R-22 cannot
withstand this higher pressure.
7. R-410A has an ozone depletion potential of zero,
but must be reclaimed due to its global warming
potential.
8. R-410A compressors use Polyol Ester oil.
9. Polyol Ester oil is hygroscopic; it will rapidly
absorb moisture and strongly hold this moisture in
the oil.
10. A liquid line dryer must be used - even a deep
vacuum will not separate moisture from the oil.
11. Limit atmospheric exposure to 15 minutes.
5. Do not burn R-410A. This decomposition
produces hazardous vapors. Evacuate the area if
exposed.
6. Use only cylinders rated DOT4BA/4BW 400.
7. Never fill cylinders over 80% of total capacity.
8. Store cylinders in a cool area, out of direct
sunlight.
9. Never heat cylinders above 125°F.
10. Never trap liquid R-410A in manifold sets, gauge
lines or cylinders. R-410A expands significantly
at warmer temperatures. Once a cylinder or line is
full of liquid, any further rise in temperature will
cause it to burst.
12. If compressor removal is necessary, always plug
compressor immediately after removal. Purge with
small amount of nitrogen when inserting plugs.
START UP NOTES
TOPPING OFF SYSTEM CHARGE
For improved start up performance, wash the indoor coil
with dishwasher detergent.
If a leak has occurred in the system, Bard
Manufacturing recommends reclaiming, evacuating
(see criteria above), and charging to the nameplate
charge. Topping off the system charge can be done
without problems.
With R-410A, there are no significant changes in the
refrigerant composition during multiple leaks and
recharges. R-410A refrigerant is close to being an
azeotropic blend (it behaves like a pure compound or
single component refrigerant). The remaining
refrigerant charge, in the system, may be used after
leaks have occurred and then “top-off” the charge by
utilizing the charging charts on the inner control panel
cover as a guideline.
REMEMBER: When adding R-410A refrigerant, it
must come out of the charging cylinder/tank as a liquid
to avoid any fractionation, and to insure optimal system

START UP AND OPERATION
THREE PHASE SCROLL COMPRESSOR
START UP INFORMATION
(Model PA13361-B)
Scroll compressors, like several other types of
compressors, will only compress in one rotational
direction. Direction of rotation is not an issue with
single phase compressors since they will always start
and run in the proper direction.
However, three phase compressors will rotate in either
direction depending upon phasing of the power. Since
there is a 50-50 chance of connecting power in such a
way as to cause rotation in the reverse direction,
verification of proper rotation must be made.
Verification of proper rotation direction is made by
observing that suction pressure drops and discharge
pressure rises when the compressor is energized.
Reverse rotation also results in an elevated sound level
over that with correct rotation, as well as, substantially
reduced current draw compared to tabulated values.
Verification of proper rotation must be made at the
time the equipment is put into service. If improper
rotation is corrected at this time there will be no
negative impact on the durability of the compressor.
However, reverse operation for over one hour may have
a negative impact on the bearing due to oil pump out.
NOTE: If compressor is allowed to run in reverse
rotation for several minutes the compressor’s
internal protector will trip.
All three phase scroll compressors are wired identically
internally. As a result, once the correct phasing is
determined for a specific system or installation,
connecting properly phased power leads to the same
Fusite terminals should maintain proper rotation
direction.
The direction of rotation of the motor may be changed
by reversing any two line connections to the unit.
(Models PA13422-B, -C; PA13482-B, -C;
PA13602-B, -C)
All units with three phase scroll compressors are
equipped with a three phase line monitor to prevent
compressor damage due to phase reversal.
The phase monitor in this unit is equipped with two
LED’s. If the “Y” signal is present at the phase monitor
and phases are correct, the green LED will light.
If phases are reversed, the red fault LED will be lit and
compressor operation is inhibited.
If a fault condition occurs, reverse tow of the supply
leads to the unit. Do not reverse any of the unit factory
wires as damage may occur.

SEQUENCE OF OPERATION
BLOWER ONLY – When the “Fan” switch on the
room thermostat is placed in the “On” position (circuit
R-G makes), the blower will energize and run until the
“Fan” switch is placed back into the “Auto” position.
This will allow for constant air circulation at a lower
airflow during times when the unit is not in operation
for cooling or heating.
COOLING – On a call for cooling from the room
thermostat (circuit R-Y makes), the blower will energize
(circuit R-G is automatic when R-Y makes) as well as
the compressor, and outdoor fan motor. Note that if the
“Fan” switch on the room thermostat is in the “On”
position and the blower is already in operation, then the
motor will ramp up to the required speed for cooling.
HEATING (1st Stage) – On a call for heating from
the room thermostat (circuit R-W1 makes), the blower
will energize (circuit R-G is automatic when R-W1
makes). This will place the system into heating
operation to maintain the thermostat set temperature.
Note that if the “Fan” switch on the room thermostat is
in the “On” position and the blower is already in
operation, then the motor will ramp up to the required
speed for heating.
HEATING (2nd Stage) – If the operation of the 1st
Stage electric heaters will not maintain the set room
temperature, then the thermostat will call for additional
heat to help maintain the set temperature. On a call for
second stage heating from the room thermostat (circuit
R-W2 makes), additional electric heaters will be
energized if installed.
INDOOR BLOWER MOTOR
These models feature a variable speed (ECM) motor
providing high efficiency, low sound levels and soft
start capabilities. The motor is self adjusting to provide
the proper airflow rate at duct static pressures up to
0.50" WC without user adjustment or wiring changes.
On command from the wall thermostat the motor will
start slowly and ramp up to full speed over a period of
10-15 seconds.
When the thermostat is satisfied the blower will operate
for approximately 1 minute, and then slow down and
stop.
COMPRESSOR CONTROL MODULE
The compressor control is an anti-short cycle/lockout
timer with high and low pressure switch monitoring and
alarm output.
ADJUSTABLE DELAY-ON-MAKE AND BREAK
TIMER
ADJUSTMENTS
On a call for compressor operation the delay-on-make
period begins which will be 10% of the delay-on-break
setting. When the delay-on-make is complete and the
high pressure switch (and low pressure switch if
employed) is closed, the compressor contactor is
energized. Upon shutdown, the delay-on-break timer
starts and prevents restart until the delay-on-break and
delay-on-make periods have expired.
ADJUSTABLE DELAY-ON-MAKE AND
DELAY-ON-BREAK TIMER
HIGH PRESSURE SWITCH AND LOCKOUT
SEQUENCE (Standard Feature)
If the high pressure switch opens, the compressor
contactor will de-energize immediately. The lockout
timer will go into a soft lockout and stay in soft lockout
until the high pressure switch closes and the delay-onmake time has expired. If the high pressure switch
opens again in this same operating cycle the unit will go
into manual lockout condition and the alarm circuit will
energize. Recycling the wall thermostat resets the
manual lockout.
LOW PRESSURE SWITCH, BYPASS, AND
LOCKOUT SEQUENCE (Standard Feature)
If the low pressure switch opens for more that 120
seconds, the compressor contactor will de-energize and
go into a soft lockout. Regardless the state of the low
pressure switch, the contactor will reenergize after the
delay-on-make time delay has expired. If the low
pressure switch remains open or opens again for longer
than 120 seconds the unit will go into manual lockout
condition and the alarm circuit will energize. Recycling
the wall thermostat resets the manual lockout.
ALARM OUTPUT
Alarm terminal is output connection for applications
where alarm signal is desired. This terminal is powered
whenever compressor is locked out due to HPC or LPC
sequences as described.
The potentiometer is used to select Delay-on-Break time
from 30 seconds to 5 minutes. Delay-on-Make (DOM)
timing on power-up and after power interruptions is
equal to 2 minutes plus 10% of Delay-on-Break (DOB)

LOW AMBIENT CONTROL
Optional Low Ambient Control
An optional low ambient control is available for both
factory and field installed options. The low ambient
control is to be applied to the PA13 Series models when
operation below 55° outdoor conditions are anticipated.
Without this device, the evaporating pressure would fall
off, and the indoor coil would ice over.
The fan cycling control cycles the fan motor on, once the
liquid refrigerant pressure reaches 350 psig, and off, once
it has dropped to 225 psig. It will continue to cycle
between these parameters depending on outdoor
temperatures and the load/stage of the system.
This cycling maintains a minimum liquid pressure
affecting the minimum suction pressure. This effect
insures an evaporating temperature that is slightly above
the point of ice formation on the evaporator.
This field installed option is Bard Part #CMA-28. See
Figure 7.
FIGURE 7
LOW AMBIENT CONTROL WIRING
NOTE: Both high and low pressure switch controls are
inherently automatic reset devices. The high
pressure switch and low pressure switch cut out
and cut in settings are fixed by specific air
conditioner or heat pump unit model. The
lockout features, both soft and manual, are a
function of the Compressor Control Module.

SERVICE AND TROUBLESHOOTING
SERVICE HINTS
FAN BLADE SETTINGS
1. Caution homeowner to maintain clean air filters at
all times. Also, not to needlessly close off supply
and return air registers. This reduces airflow
through the system which shortens equipment
service life as well as increasing operating costs.
Shown in Figure 8 are the correct fan blade setting
dimensions for proper air delivery across the outdoor
coil.
2. Check all power fuses or circuit breakers to be sure
that they are the correct rating.
Any service work requiring removal or adjustment in
the fan and/or motor area will require that the
dimensions below be checked and blade adjusted in or
out on the motor shaft accordingly.
3. Periodic cleaning of the outdoor coil to permit full
and unrestricted airflow circulation is essential.

SUCTION AND DISCHARGE TUBE
BRAZING
Compliant Scroll compressors have copper plated steel
suction and discharge tubes. These tubes are far more
rugged and less prone to leaks than copper tubes used on
other compressors. Due to different thermal properties
of steel and copper, brazing procedures may have to be
changed from those commonly used.
• To disconnect: heat joint Areas 2 and 3 slowly and
uniformly until braze material softens and the tube
can be pulled out of suction fitting. (See Figure 9.)
– Heat tube uniformly in Area 1 moving slowly to
Area 2. When joint reaches brazing
temperature, apply brazing material. (See
Figure 9)
– Heat joint uniformly around the circumference
to flow braze material completely around the
joint.
– Slowly move torch into Area 3 to draw braze
material into joint. (See Figure 9.)
– Do not overheat joint.
• To connect:
– Recommended brazing materials: silfos with
minimum 5% silver or silver braze material with
flux.

TROUBLESHOOTING GE ECM2.3™ MOTORS
Replacing ECM Control Module
To replace the control module for the GE variable-speed indoor blower
motor you need to take the following steps:
1. You MUST have the correct replacement module. The controls are
factory programmed for specific operating modes. Even though they look
alike, different modules may have completely different functionality.
USING THE WRONG CONTROL MODULE VOIDS ALL PRODUCT
WARRANTIES AND MAY PRODUCE UNEXPECTED RESULTS.
2. Begin by removing AC power from the unit being serviced. DO NOT
WORK ON THE MOTOR WITH AC POWER APPLIED. To avoid
electric shock from the motor’s capacitors, disconnect power and wait at
least 5 minutes before opening motor.
3. It is not necessary to remove the motor from the blower assembly, nor
the blower assembly from the unit. Unplug the two cable connectors to the
motor control assembly. There are latches on each connector. DO NOT
PULL ON THE WIRES. The plugs remove easily when properly
released.
4. Locate the screws that retain to the motor control bracket to the
sheet metal of the unit and remove them. Remove two (2) nuts that
retain the control to the bracket and then remove two (2) nuts that
retain sheet metal motor control end plate. Refer to Figure 10.
5. Disconnect the three (3) wires interior of the motor control by
using your thumb and forefinger squeezing the latch tab and the
opposite side of the connector plug, gently pulling the connector. DO
NOT PULL ON THE WIRES, GRIP THE PLUG ONLY. Refer to
Figure 10.
6. The control module is now completely detached from the motor.
Verify with a standard ohmmeter that the resistance from each motor
lead (in the motor plug just removed) to the motor shell is >100K
ohms. Refer to Figure 11. (Measure to unpainted motor end plate.) If
any motor lead fails this test, do not proceed to install the control
module. THE MOTOR IS DEFECTIVE AND MUST BE
REPLACED. Installing the new control module will cause it to fail
also.
CONT’D.
7. Verify that the replacement control is correct for your
application. Refer to the manufacturer's authorized replacement list.
USING THE WRONG CONTROL WILL RESULT IN
IMPROPER OR NO BLOWER OPERATION. Orient the control
module so that the 3-wire motor plug can be inserted into the socket in
the control. Carefully insert the plug and press it into the socket until
it latches. A SLIGHT CLICK WILL BE HEARD WHEN
PROPERLY INSERTED.
8. Reverse the steps #5, 4, 3 to reconnect the motor control to the
motor wires, securing the motor control cover plate, mounting the
control to the bracket, and mounting the motor control bracket back
into the unit. MAKE SURE THE ORIENTATION YOU SELECT
FOR REPLACING THE CONTROL ASSURES THE
CONTROL'S CABLE CONNECTORS WILL BE LOCATED
DOWNWARD IN THE APPLICATION SO THAT WATER
CANNOT RUN DOWN THE CABLES AND INTO THE
CONTROL. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THE BOLTS.
9. Plug the 16-pin control plug into the motor. The plug is keyed.
Make sure the connector is properly seated and latched.
10. Plug the 5-pin power connector into the motor. Even though
the plug is keyed, OBSERVE THE PROPER ORIENTATION. DO
NOT FORCE THE CONNECTOR. It plugs in very easily when
properly oriented. REVERSING THIS PLUG WILL CAUSE
IMMEDIATE FAILURE OF THE CONTROL MODULE.
11. Final installation check. Make sure the motor is installed as follows:
a. Motor connectors should be oriented between the 4 o’clock
and 8 o’clock positions when the control is positioned in its
final location and orientation.
b.Add a drip loop to the cables so that water cannot enter the
motor by draining down the cables. Refer to Figure 12.
The installation is now complete. Reapply the AC power to the
HVAC equipment and verify that the new motor control module is
working properly. Follow the manufacturer’s procedures for
disposition of the old control module.

TROUBLESHOOTING GE X13-SERIES ECM2.3™ MOTORS
NOTE: Bard Models PA13422, PA13482 & PA13602 contain the X13-Series Motors.
e. If the motor does not shut off at the end of the cycle, wait for
any programmed delays to time out (no more than 90
seconds). Also make sure that there is no call for
“Continuous Fan” on the "G" terminal.
f. If the above diagnostics do not solve the problem, confirm the
voltage checks in the next section below, then continue with
the “Model X13 Communication Diagnostics”.
If the Motor is Running
1. It is normal for the motor to rock back and forth on start up.
Do not replace the motor if this is the only problem identified.
2. If the system is excessively noisy, does not appear to change
speeds in response to a demand (Heat, Cool, Other), or is having
symptoms during the cycle such as tripping limit or freezing coil,
check the following:
a. Wait for programmed delays to time out.
b.Ensure that the motors control inputs are wired to the factory
supplied wiring diagram to insure motor is getting proper
control signals and sequencing.
c. Remove the filter and check that all dampers, registers, and
grilles are open and free flowing. If removing the filters
corrects the problem, clean or replace with a less restrictive
filter. Also check and clean the blower wheel or coil as
necessary.
d.Check the external static pressure (total of both supply and
return) to insure that you are within the ranges as listed on the
unit serial plate. If higher than allowed, additional duct work
is needed.
If the Motor is Not Running
1. Check for proper high voltage and ground at the (L/L1) (G) (N/
L2) connections at the motor (see Figure 13). Correct any voltage
issues before proceeding to the next step. The X13 Motor is voltage
specific. Only the correct voltage should be applied to the proper
motor. Input voltage within plus or minus 10% of the nominal 230
VAC is acceptable.
2. If the motor has proper high voltage and ground at the (L/L1)
(G) (N/L2) connections, then continue with the “Model X13
Communication Diagnostics”.

Model X13 Communication Diagnostics
The X13 motor is communicated through 24 VAC low voltage
(Thermostat Control Circuit Wiring).
1. Start with unit wiring diagram to confirm proper connections
and voltage (see Figure 14).
2. Initiate a demand from the thermostat and check the voltage
between the common and the appropriate motor terminal (1-5).
("G" input is typically on terminal #1, but refer to wiring
diagram!)
a.If the low voltage communication is not present, check the
demand from the thermostat. Also check the output
terminal and wire(s) from the terminal strip or control
relay(s) to the motor.
b.If the motor has proper high voltage as identified above
(Motor not Running #1), and proper low voltage to a
programmed terminal, and is not operating, the motor is
failed, and will require replacement.
