Step 1—Check Equipment and Job Site
UNPACK UNIT
Fig. 3—Mounting Unit to Pad
Move to final location. Remove carton, taking care not to damage
unit.
Step 4—Operating Ambients
The minimum outdoor-operating ambient in cooling mode is 55°F,
and the maximum outdoor-operating ambient in cooling mode is
125°F. The maximum outdoor-operating ambient in heating mode
is 66°F.
INSPECT EQUIPMENT
File claim with shipping company prior to installation if shipment
is damaged or incomplete. Locate unit-rating plate on unit-service
panel. It contains information needed to properly install unit.
Check rating plate to be sure unit matches job specifications.
Step 5—Elevate Unit
Step 2—Install on a Solid, Level Mounting Pad
If conditions or local codes require the unit be attached to pad,
tie-down bolts should be used and fastened through knockouts
provided in unit base pan. Refer to unit-mounting pattern in Fig. 3
to determine base-pan size and knockout-hole location.
Accumulation of water and ice in base pan may cause
equipment damage.
In areas where prolonged freezing temperatures are encountered,
elevate unit per local climate and code requirements to provide
clearance above estimated snowfall level and ensure adequate
drainage of unit.
On rooftop applications, mount on level platform or frame 6 in.
above roof surface. Place unit above a load-bearing wall and
isolate unit and tubing set from structure. Arrange supporting
members to adequately support unit and minimize transmission of
vibration to building. Consult local codes governing rooftop
applications.
Step 6—Check Indoor And Outdoor AccuRater® Piston
Check indoor-coil piston to see if it matches the required piston
shown on outdoor unit-rating plate. If it does not match, replace
indoor-coil piston with piston shipped with outdoor unit. The
piston shipped with outdoor unit is correct for any approved
indoor-coil combination.
Roof-mounted units exposed to winds above 5 mph may require
wind baffles to achieve adequate defrost. Consult Low-Ambient
Guideline for wind-baffle construction.
NOTE: Unit must be level to within ±2° (±3/8 in./ft) per
compressor manufacturer specifications.
Remove indoor-coil piston if unit is to be installed on system
with a TXV-metering device.
Step 3—Clearance Requirements
When installing, allow sufficient space for airflow clearance,
wiring, refrigerant piping, and service. Allow 30-in. clearance to
service end of unit and 48 in. above unit. For proper airflow, a 6-in.
clearance on 1 side of unit and 12 in. on all remaining sides must
be maintained. Maintain a distance of 24 in. between units.
Position so water, snow, or ice from roof or eaves cannot fall
directly on unit.
Step 7—Check Defrost Thermostat
Check defrost thermostat to ensure it is properly located and
securely attached. There is a liquid header with a brass distributor
and feeder tube going into outdoor coil. At the end of 1 of the
feeder tubes, there is a 3/8-in. O.D. stub tube approximately 3 in.
long. The defrost thermostat should be located on stub tube. Note
that there is only 1 stub tube used with liquid header, and on most
units it is the bottom circuit.
On rooftop applications, locate unit at least 6 in. above roof
surface.

→ Quiet Shift
Quiet Shift is a field-selectable defrost mode, which will eliminate
occasional noise that could be heard at the start of the defrost cycle
and restarting of heating cycle. It is selected by placing DIP switch
3 (on defrost board) in ON position.
When Quiet Shift switch is placed in ON position, and a defrost is
initiated, the following sequence of operation will occur. Reversing valve will energize, compressor will turn off for 30 sec, then
turn back on to complete defrost. At the start of heating cycle after
conclusion of defrost mode, reversing valve will de-energize, the
compressor will turn off for another 30 sec, and the fan will turn
off for 40 sec, before starting in the heating mode.

On a call for cooling, thermostat makes circuits R-O, R-Y, and
R-G. Circuit R-O energizes reversing valve, switching it to cooling
position. On 3-phase models with scroll compressors, the units are
equipped with a phase monitor to detect if the incoming power is
correctly phased for compressor operation. If phasing is correct,
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.
→
Fig. 8—Defrost Control
→ Defrost
The defrost control is a time/temperature control which includes a
field-selectable time period (DIP switch 1 and 2 on the board)
between defrost cycles of 30, 60, 90, or 120 minutes (factory set at
90 minutes).
NOTE: If the phasing is incorrect, the contactor will not be
energized. To correct the phasing, interchange any 2 of the 3
power connections on the field side.
To initiate a forced defrost, two options are available depending on
the status of the defrost thermostat.
If defrost thermostat is closed, speedup pins (J1) must be shorted
by placing a flat head screwdriver in between for 5 sec and
releasing, to observe a complete defrost cycle. When the Quiet
Shift switch is selected, compressor will be turned off for two 30
sec intervals during this complete defrost cycle as explained
previously. When Quiet Shift switch is in factory default OFF
position, a normal and complete defrost cycle will be observed.
When thermostat is satisfied, its contacts open, de-energizing the
contactor and blower relay. Compressor and motors should stop.
NOTE: If indoor unit is equipped with a time-delay relay circuit,
the blower runs an additional 90 sec to increase system efficiency.
Heating
On a call for heating, thermostat makes circuits R-Y and R-G. If
phasing is correct, circuit R-Y energizes contactor, starting
outdoor-fan motor and compressor. Circuit R-G energizes indoorblower relay, starting blower motor on high speed.
If defrost thermostat is in open position, and speedup pins are
shorted (with a flat head screwdriver) for 5 sec and released, a
short defrost cycle will be observed (actual length is dependent
upon the selected Quiet Shift position). When Quiet Shift switch is
in ON position, the length of defrost is 1 minute (30 sec
compressor off period followed by 30 sec of defrost with compressor operation). On return to heating operation, compressor will
again turn off for an additional 30 sec and the fan for 40 sec. When
the Quiet Shift is in OFF position, only a brief 30 sec cycle will be
observed.
Should temperature continue to fall, R-W2 is made through
second-stage room-thermostat bulb. Circuit R-W2 energizes a
sequencer, bringing on first bank of supplemental electric heat and
providing electrical potential to second heater sequencer (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.

If it is desirable to observe a complete defrost in warmer weather,
the thermostat must be closed as follows:
Step 1—Final Checks
IMPORTANT: Before leaving job, be sure to do the following:
1. Turn off power to outdoor unit.
1. Securely fasten all panels and covers.
2. Disconnect outdoor fan motor lead from OF2 on control
board. (See Fig. 8.) Tape to prevent grounding.
2. Tighten service valve stem caps to 1/12-turn past finger tight.
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).
NOTE: Unit will remain in defrost until defrost thermostat
reopens at approximately 80°F coil temperature at liquid line or
remainder of defrost cycle time.
5. Turn off power to outdoor and reconnect fan motor lead to
OF2 on control board after above forced defrost cycle.
