On WS cool-only models, touch the Mode button once to activate
the MoneySaver® (See item 14 for MoneySaver instructions on
WY/WE models).
MoneySaver® is a feature that cycles the fan with the compressor
so that the fan does not run all the time. This saves energy and
improves dehumidification. MoneySaver® will also run to test
the temperature if the off cycle is too long. Or you may prefer
constant fan for more air movement. (To return to constant fan,
touch the Mode button two more times).
In order to run the fan by itself, do the following:
On WY/WS heat-cool models, touch the Mode button once to
activate the Fan Only feature. The Fan Only setting will circulate
air in the room without the compressor coming on.

are opened for an extended period of time, or more people enter a
room, Smart Fan may adjust to a higher fan speed to compensate
for the increased heat load. This keeps you from having to adjust
the fan speed on your own.

CAPACITORS
WARNING
ELECTRIC SHOCK HAZARD
Turn off electric power before servicing.
Discharge capacitor with a 20,000 Ohm 2 Watt
resistor before handling.
Failure to do so may result in personal injury,
or death.
Many motor capacitors are internally fused. Shorting the
terminals will blow the fuse, ruining the capacitor. A 20,000
ohm 2 watt resistor can be used to discharge capacitors
safely. Remove wires from capacitor and place resistor
across terminals. When checking a dual capacitor with
a capacitor analyzer or ohmmeter, both sides must be
tested.
Capacitor Check with Capacitor Analyzer
The capacitor analyzer will show whether the capacitor is
“open” or “shorted.” It will tell whether the capacitor is within
its micro farads rating and it will show whether the capacitor
is operating at the proper power-factor percentage. The
instrument will automatically discharge the capacitor when
the test switch is released.
HEATING ELEMENT
(“WE” &”WY” Models)
All “WE” and “WY” models are equipped with a 3.3 KW
heating element.
The heating element has two heater limit switches
(bimetal thermostats) connected in series with it. The
Primary limit located near the bottom, will open the
circuit when the temperature reaches 130°F +/-5°. The
Secondary is a high limit switch near the top of the
element. It is designed to open the circuit at 165°F +/-8°.
Should the fan motor fail or filter become clogged etc.,
the high limit switch will open and interrupt the power to
the heater before reaching an unsafe temperature
condition.
Test the heater element for continuity below 130°F.
Heating Element
Capacitor Connections
The starting winding of a motor can be damaged by a
shorted and grounded running capacitor. This damage
usually can be avoided by proper connection of the running
capacitor terminals.
From the supply line on a typical 230 volt circuit, a 115 volt
potential exists from the “R” terminal to ground through a
possible short in the capacitor. However, from the “S” or
start terminal, a much higher potential, possibly as high as
400 volts, exists because of the counter EMF generated
in the start winding. Therefore, the possibility of capacitor
failure is much greater when the identified terminal is
connected to the “S” or start terminal. The identified
terminal should always be connected to the supply line, or
“R” terminal, never to the “S” terminal.
When connected properly, a shorted or grounded running
capacitor will result in a direct short to ground from the “R”
terminal and will blow the line fuse. The motor protector
will protect the main winding from excessive temperature.

DRAIN PAN VALVE
During the cooling mode of operation, condensate which
collects in the drain pan is picked up by the condenser
fan blade and sprayed onto the condenser coil. This assists in cooling the refrigerant plus evaporating the water.
During the heating mode of operation, it is necessary that
water be removed to prevent it from freezing during cold
outside temperatures. This could cause the condenser
fan blade to freeze in the accumulated water and prevent
it from turning.
To provide a means of draining this water, a bellows type
drain valve is installed over a drain opening in the base
pan. This valve is temperature sensitive and will open
when the outside temperature reaches 40°F. The valve
will close gradually as the temperature rises above 40°F
to fully close at 60°F.

REFRIGERATION SYSTEM SEQUENCE OF OPERATION
A good understanding of the basic operation of the
refrigeration system is essential for the service technician.
Without this understanding, accurate troubleshooting of
refrigeration system problems will be more difficult and time
consuming, if not (in some cases) entirely impossible. The
refrigeration system uses four basic principles (laws) in its
operation they are as follows:
1. “Heat always flows from a warmer body to a cooler
body.”
2. “Heat must be added to or removed from a substance
before a change in state can occur”
3. “Flow is always from a higher pressure area to a lower
pressure area.”
4. “The temperature at which a liquid or gas changes state
is dependent upon the pressure.”
The refrigeration cycle begins at the compressor. Starting
the compressor creates a low pressure in the suction line
which draws refrigerant gas (vapor) into the compressor.
The compressor then “compresses” this refrigerant, raising
its pressure and its (heat intensity) temperature.
The refrigerant leaves the compressor through the discharge
Line as a hot High pressure gas (vapor). The refrigerant
enters the condenser coil where it gives up some of its
heat. The condenser fan moving air across the coil’s finned
surface facilitates the transfer of heat from the refrigerant to
the relatively cooler outdoor air.
The refrigerant leaves the condenser Coil through the liquid
line as a warm high pressure liquid. It next will pass through
the refrigerant drier (if so equipped). It is the function of the
drier to trap any moisture present in the system, contaminants,
and large particulate matter.
The liquid refrigerant next enters the metering device. The
metering device is a capillary tube. The purpose of the
metering device is to “meter” (i.e. control or measure) the
quantity of refrigerant entering the evaporator coil.
In the case of the capillary tube this is accomplished (by
design) through size (and length) of device, and the pressure
difference present across the device.
Since the evaporator coil is under a lower pressure (due to
the suction created by the compressor) than the liquid line,
the liquid refrigerant leaves the metering device entering the
evaporator coil. As it enters the evaporator coil, the larger
area and lower pressure allows the refrigerant to expand
and lower its temperature (heat intensity). This expansion is
often referred to as “boiling”. Since the unit’s blower is moving
indoor air across the finned surface of the evaporator coil,
the expanding refrigerant absorbs some of that heat. This
results in a lowering of the indoor air temperature, hence the
“cooling” effect.
The expansion and absorbing of heat cause the liquid
refrigerant to evaporate (i.e. change to a gas). Once the
refrigerant has been evaporated (changed to a gas), it is
heated even further by the air that continues to flow across
the evaporator coil.
When a sufficient quantity of heat has been removed from
the refrigerant gas (vapor), the refrigerant will “condense”
(i.e. change to a liquid). Once the refrigerant has been
condensed (changed) to a liquid it is cooled even further by
the air that continues to flow across the condenser coil.
The particular system design determines at exactly what
point (in the evaporator) the change of state (i.e. liquid to a
gas) takes place. In all cases, however, the refrigerant must
be totally evaporated (changed) to a gas before leaving the
evaporator coil.
The WallMaster design determines at exactly what point (in
the condenser) the change of state (i.e. gas to a liquid)
takes place. In all cases, however, the refrigerant must be
totally condensed (changed) to a Liquid before leaving the
condenser coil.
The low pressure (suction) created by the compressor
causes the refrigerant to leave the evaporator through the
suction line as a cool low pressure vapor. The refrigerant then
returns to the compressor, where the cycle is repeated.

R-410A SEALED SYSTEM REPAIR CONSIDERATIONS
WARNING
Refrigeration system under high pressure
Do not puncture, heat, expose to flame or incinerate.
Only certified refrigeration technicians should
service this equipment.
R410A systems operate at higher pressures than
R22 equipment. Appropriate safe service and
handling practicces must be used.
Only use gauge sets designed for use with R410A.
Do not use standard R22 gauge sets.
The following is a list of important considerations when working with R-410A equipment
16
•
R-410A pressure is approximately 60% higher than R-22 pressure.
•
R-410A cylinders must not be allowed to exceed 125 F, they may leak or rupture.
•
R-410A must never be pressurized with a mixture of air, it may become
flammable.
•
Servicing equipment and components must be specifically designed for use with R-410A and
dedicated to prevent contamination.
•
Manifold sets must be equipped with gauges capable of reading 750 psig (high side) and 200
psig (low side), with a 500-psig low-side retard.
•
Gauge hoses must have a minimum 750-psig service pressure rating
•
Recovery cylinders must have a minimum service pressure rating of 400 psig, (DOT 4BA400
and DOT BW400 approved cylinders).
•
POE (Polyol-Ester) lubricants must be used with R-410A equipment.
•
To prevent moisture absorption and lubricant contamination, do not leave the refrigeration
system open to the atmosphere longer than 1 hour.
•
Weigh-in the refrigerant charge into the high side of the system.
•
Introduce liquid refrigerant charge into the high side of the system.
•
For low side pressure charging of R-410A, use a charging adaptor.
•
Use Friedrich approved R-410A filter dryers only.
R-410A SEALED REFRIGERATION SYSTEM REPAIRS

detecting HFC (Hydrofluorocarbon) refrigerants.
8. Accurate refrigerant charge measuring device such
as:
a. Balance Scales - 1/2 oz. accuracy
b. Charging Board - 1/2 oz. accuracy
WARNING
RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK
Unplug and/or disconnect all electrical power
to the unit before performing inspections,
maintenances or service.
Failure to do so could result in electric shock,
serious injury or death.
WARNING
HIGH PRESSURE HAZARD
Sealed Refrigeration System contains refrigerant
and oil under high pressure.
Proper safety procedures must be followed,
and proper protective clothing must be worn
when working with refrigerants.
Failure to follow these procedures could
result in serious injury or death.
Refrigerant Charging
NOTE: Because the Wallmaster system is a sealed system,
service process tubes will have to be installed. First install a
line tap and remove refrigerant from system. Make necessary
sealed system repairs and vacuum system. Crimp process
tube line and solder end shut. Do not leave a service valve in
the sealed system.
High Pressure Gauge - (0 to 750 lbs.)
12. Facilities for flowing nitrogen through refrigeration tubing
during all brazing processes.
EQUIPMENT MUST BE CAPABLE OF:
1. Recovering refrigerant to EPA required levels.
2. Evacuation from both the high side and low side of the
system simultaneously.
3. Introducing refrigerant charge into high side of the
system.
4. Accurately weighing the refrigerant charge introduced
into the system.
Proper refrigerant charge is essential to proper unit operation.
Operating a unit with an improper refrigerant charge will
result in reduced performance (capacity) and/or efficiency.
Accordingly, the use of proper charging methods during
servicing will insure that the unit is functioning as designed
and that its compressor will not be damaged.
Too much refrigerant (overcharge) in the system is just as bad
(if not worse) than not enough refrigerant (undercharge). They
both can be the source of certain compressor failures if they
remain uncorrected for any period of time. Quite often, other
problems (such as low air flow across evaporator, etc.) are
misdiagnosed as refrigerant charge problems. The refrigerant
circuit diagnosis chart will assist you in properly diagnosing
these systems.
An overcharged unit will at times return liquid refrigerant
(slugging) back to the suction side of the compressor eventually
causing a mechanical failure within the compressor. This
mechanical failure can manifest itself as valve failure, bearing
failure, and/or other mechanical failure. The specific type of
failure will be influenced by the amount of liquid being returned,
and the length of time the slugging continues.
Not enough refrigerant (undercharge) on the other hand, will
cause the temperature of the suction gas to increase to the point
where it does not provide sufficient cooling for the compressor
motor. When this occurs, the motor winding temperature will
increase causing the motor to overheat and possibly cycle open
the compressor overload protector. Continued overheating of
the motor windings and/or cycling of the overload will eventually
lead to compressor motor or overload failure.
17
Method Of Charging / Repairs
The acceptable method for charging the WallMaster system
is the Weighed in Charge Method. The weighed in charge
method is applicable to all units. It is the preferred method to
use, as it is the most accurate.
The weighed in method should always be used whenever
a charge is removed from a unit such as for a leak repair,
compressor replacement, or when there is no refrigerant
charge left in the unit. To charge by this method, requires the
following steps:
1. Install a piercing valve to remove refrigerant from the
sealedsystem. (Piercing valve must be removed from the
system before recharging.)
2. Recover Refrigerant in accordance with EPA regulations.
WARNING
BURN HAZARD
Proper safety procedures must be followed,
and proper protective clothing must be worn

Proper safety procedures must be followed,
and proper protective clothing must be worn
when working with refrigerants.
Failure to do so could result in serious injury or
death.
Failure to follow these procedures could
result in serious injury or death.
Undercharged Refrigerant Systems
An undercharged system will result in poor performance
(low pressures, etc.) in both the heating and cooling
cycle.
Whenever you service a unit with an undercharge of
refrigerant, always suspect a leak. The leak must be
repaired before charging the unit.
A check of the amperage drawn by the compressor
motor should show a lower reading. (Check the Unit
Specification.) After the unit has run 10 to 15 minutes,
check the gauge pressures. Gauges connected to system
with an undercharge will have low head pressures and
substantially low suction pressures.
To check for an undercharged system, turn the unit on,
allow the compressor to run long enough to establish
working pressures in the system (15 to 20 minutes).
During the cooling cycle you can listen carefully at the exit
of the metering device into the evaporator; an intermittent
hissing and gurgling sound indicates a low refrigerant
charge. Intermittent frosting and thawing of the evaporator
is another indication of a low charge, however, frosting
and thawing can also be caused by insufficient air over
the evaporator.
Checks for an undercharged system can be made at
the compressor. If the compressor seems quieter than
normal, it is an indication of a low refrigerant charge.
Overcharged Refrigerant Systems
Compressor amps will be near normal or higher.
Noncondensables can also cause these symptoms. To
confirm, remove some of the charge, if conditions improve,
system may be overcharged. If conditions don’t improve,
Noncondensables are indicated.
of the evaporator will not be encountered because the
refrigerant will boil later if at all. Gauges connected to
system will usually have higher head pressure (depending
upon amount of over charge). Suction pressure should be
slightly higher.
Whenever an overcharged system is indicated, always
make sure that the problem is not caused by air flow
problems. Improper air flow over the evaporator coil may
indicate some of the same symptoms as an over charged
system.
An overcharge can cause the compressor to fail, since it
would be “slugged” with liquid refrigerant.
The charge for any system is critical. When the compressor
is noisy, suspect an overcharge, when you are sure that
the air quantity over the evaporator coil is correct. Icing

METERING DEVICE
Capillary Tube Systems
All units are equipped with capillary tube metering
devices.
3.
Switch the unit to the heating mode and observe the
gauge readings after a few minutes running time. If
the system pressure is lower than normal, the heating
capillary is restricted.
4.
If the operating pressures are lower than normal in both
the heating and cooling mode, the cooling capillary is
restricted.
Checking for restricted capillary tubes.
1. Connect pressure gauges to unit.
2. Start the unit in the cooling mode. If after a few minutes
of operation the pressures are normal, the check valve
and the cooling capillary are not restricted.
CHECK VALVE
A unique two-way check valve is used on the reverse cycle
heat pumps. It is pressure operated and used to direct the
flow of refrigerant through a single filter drier and to the
proper capillary tube during either the heating or cooling
cycle.
One-way Check Valve
(Heat Pump Models)
NOTE: The slide (check) inside the valve is made of teflon.
Should it become necessary to replace the check valve,
place a wet cloth around the valve to prevent overheating
during the brazing operation.
CHECK VALVE OPERATION
In the cooling mode of operation, high pressure liquid enters
the check valve forcing the slide to close the opposite port
(liquid line) to the indoor coil. Refer to refrigerant flow chart.
This directs the refrigerant through the filter drier and cooling
capillary tube to the indoor coil.
Failure of the slide in the check valve to seat properly in
either mode of operation will cause flooding of the cooling
coil. This is due to the refrigerant bypassing the heating or
cooling capillary tube and entering the liquid line.
COOLING MODE
In the cooling mode of operation, liquid refrigerant from
condenser (liquid line) enters the cooling check valve
forcing the heating check valve shut. The liquid refrigerant
is directed into the liquid dryer after which the refrigerant
is metered through cooling capillary tubes to evaporator.
(Note: liquid refrigerant will also be directed through the
heating capillary tubes in a continuous loop during the
cooling mode).
HEATING MODE
In the heating mode of operation, liquid refrigerant from
the indoor coil enters the heating check valve forcing the
cooling check valve shut. The liquid refrigerant is directed
into the liquid dryer after which the refrigerant is metered
through the heating capillary tubes to outdoor coils. (Note:
liquid refrigerant will also be directed through the cooling
capillary tubes in a continuous loop during the heating
mode).
In the heating mode of operation, high pressure refrigerant
enters the check valve from the opposite direction, closing
the port (liquid line) to the outdoor coil. The flow path of the
refrigerant is then through the filter drier and heating capillary
to the outdoor coil.

REVERSING VALVE DESCRIPTION/OPERATION
WARNING
ELECTRIC SHOCK HAZARD
Disconnect power to the unit before servicing.
Failure to follow this warning could result in
serious injury or death.
The Reversing Valve controls the direction of refrigerant flow
to the indoor and outdoor coils. It consists of a pressureoperated, main valve and a pilot valve actuated by a solenoid
plunger. The solenoid is energized during the heating cycle
only. The reversing valves used in the sealed system is a 2
position, 4 port valve.
The single tube on one side of the main valve body is the
high-pressure inlet to the valve from the compressor. The
center tube on the opposite side is connected to the low
pressure (suction) side of the system. The other two are
connected to the indoor and outdoor coils. Small capillary
tubes connect each end of the main valve cylinder to the
“A” and “B” ports of the pilot valve. A third capillary is a common
return line from these ports to the suction tube on the main
valve body. Four-way reversing valves also have a capillary
tube from the compressor discharge tube to the pilot valve.
The piston assembly in the main valve can only be shifted
by the pressure differential between the high and low sides
of the system. The pilot section of the valve opens and
closes ports for the small capillary tubes to the main valve
to cause it to shift.
NOTE: System operating pressures must be near
normal before valve can shift.

TESTING THE COIL
WARNING
ELECTRIC SHOCK HAZARD
Unplug and/or disconnect all electrical power
to the unit before performing inspections,
maintenances or service.
Failure to do so could result in electric shock,
serious injury or death.
The solenoid coil is an electromagnetic type coil mounted
on the reversing valve and is energized during the
operation of the compressor in the heating cycle.
1. Turn off high voltage electrical power to unit.
2. Unplug line voltage lead from reversing valve coil.
3. Check for electrical continuity through the coil. If you
do not have continuity replace the coil.
4. Check from each lead of coil to the copper liquid line
as it leaves the unit or the ground lug. There should
be no continuity between either of the coil leads
and ground; if there is, coil is grounded and must be
replaced.
pressure to build in the system. Then switch the system
from heating to cooling.
If the valve is stuck in the heating position, block the air
flow through the indoor coil and allow discharge pressure
to build in the system. Then switch the system from
heating to cooling.
Should the valve fail to shift in either position after
increasing the discharge pressure, replace the valve.
Dented or damaged valve body or capillary tubes can
prevent the main slide in the valve body from shifting.
If you determing this is the problem, replace the reversing
valve.
After all of the previous inspections and checks have
been made and determined correct, then perform the
“Touch Test” on the reversing valve.
5. If coil tests okay, reconnect the electrical leads.
6. Make sure coil has been assembled correctly.
NOTE: Do not start unit with solenoid coil removed from
valve, or do not remove coil after unit is in operation. This
will cause the coil to burn out.
CHECKING THE REVERSING VALVE
NOTE: You must have normal operating pressures before
the reversing valve can shift.
WARNING
HIGH PRESSURE HAZARD
Sealed Refrigeration System contains refrigerant
and oil under high pressure.
Reversing Valve in Heating Mode
Proper safety procedures must be followed,
and proper protective clothing must be worn
when working with refrigerants.
Failure to follow these procedures could
result in serious injury or death.
Check the operation of the valve by starting the system
and switching the operation from “Cooling” to “Heating”
and then back to “Cooling”. Do not hammer on valve.
Occasionally, the reversing valve may stick in the heating
or cooling position or in the mid-position.
When sluggish or stuck in the mid-position, part of the
discharge gas from the compressor is directed back to the
suction side, resulting in excessively high suction pressure.
Should the valve fail to shift from coooling to heating, block
the air flow through the outdoor coil and allow the discharge

WARNING
EXPLOSION HAZARD
The use of nitrogen requires a pressure
regulator. Follow all safety procedures and
wear protective safety clothing etc.
Failure to follow these procedures could
result in minor to moderate injury.
The only definite indications that the slide is in the midposition is if all three tubes on the suction side of the valve
are hot after a few minutes of running time.
NOTE: A condition other than those illustrated above, and
on Page 31, indicate that the reversing valve is not shifting
properly. Both tubes shown as hot or cool must be the same
corresponding temperature.
Procedure For Changing Reversing Valve
WARNING
HIGH PRESSURE HAZARD
Sealed Refrigeration System contains refrigerant
and oil under high pressure.
Proper safety procedures must be followed,
and proper protective clothing must be worn
when working with refrigerants.
Failure to follow these procedures could
result in serious injury or death.
NOTICE
FIRE HAZARD
The use of a torch requires extreme care and proper
judgment. Follow all safety recommended precautions
and protect surrounding areas with fire proof materials.

24
1.
Install Process Tubes. Recover refrigerant from sealed
system. PROPER HANDLING OF RECOVERED
REFRIGERANT ACCORDING TO EPA REGULATIONS
IS REQUIRED.
2.
Remove solenoid coil from reversing valve. If coil is to
be reused, protect from heat while changing valve.
3.
Unbraze all lines from reversing valve.
4.
Clean all excess braze from all tubing so that they will
slip into fittings on new valve.
5.
Remove solenoid coil from new valve.
Failure to follow proper safety procedures
could result in serious injury or death.
8.
Pressurize sealed system with a combination of R-22
and nitrogen and check for leaks, using a suitable leak
detector. Recover refrigerant per EPA guidelines.
9.
Once the sealed system is leak free, install solenoid coil
on new valve and charge the sealed system by weighing
in the proper amount and type of refrigerant as shown
on rating plate. Crimp the process tubes and solder the
ends shut. Do not leave Schrader or piercing valves in
the sealed system.
NOTE: When brazing a reversing valve into the system, it is
of extreme importance that the temperature of the valve does
not exceed 250°F at any time.
Wrap the reversing valve with a large rag saturated with
water. “Re-wet” the rag and thoroughly cool the valve after
each brazing operation of the four joints involved.
The wet rag around the reversing valve will eliminate
conduction of heat to the valve body when brazing the line
connection.
COMPRESSOR CHECKS
WARNING
ELECTRIC SHOCK HAZARD
Turn off electric power before service or
installation. Extreme care must be used, if it
becomes necessary to work on equipment with
power applied.
Failure to do so could result in serious injury or
death.
Locked Rotor Voltage (L.R.V.) Test
Locked rotor voltage (L.R.V.) is the actual voltage available
at the compressor under a stalled condition.
Single Phase Connections
Disconnect power from unit. Using a voltmeter, attach one
lead of the meter to the run “R” terminal on the compressor
and the other lead to the common “C” terminal of the compressor. Restore power to unit.
Determine L.R.V.
Start the compressor with the volt meter attached; then stop
the unit. Attempt to restart the compressor within a couple
of seconds and immediately read the voltage on the meter.
The compressor under these conditions will not start and will
usually kick out on overload within a few seconds since the
pressures in the system will not have had time to equalize.
Voltage should be at or above minimum voltage of 197 VAC,
as specified on the rating plate. If less than minimum, check
for cause of inadequate power supply; i.e., incorrect wire
size, loose electrical connections, etc.
Amperage (L.R.A.) Test
The running amperage of the compressor is the most important of these readings. A running amperage higher than that
indicated in the performance data indicates that a problem
exists mechanically or electrically.
Single Phase Running and L.R.A. Test
NOTE: Consult the specification and performance section
for running amperage. The L.R.A. can also be found on the
rating plate.
External Overload
The compressor is equipped with an external overload
which senses both motor amperage and winding temperature. High motor temperature or amperage heats the
overload causing it to open, breaking the common circuit
within the compressor.
Heat generated within the compressor shell, usually due
to recycling of the motor, is slow to dissipate. It may take
anywhere from a few minutes to several hours for the
overload to reset.
Checking the External Overload
WARNING
ELECTRIC SHOCK HAZARD
Turn off electric power before service or
installation. Extreme care must be used, if it
becomes necessary to work on equipment
with power applied.
Failure to do so could result in serious injury or
death.
WARNING
BURN HAZARD
Certain unit components operate at
temperatures hot enough to cause burns.
Proper safety procedures must be followed,
and proper protective clothing must be
worn.
Failure to follow this warning could result
in moderate to serious injury.
With power off, remove the leads from compressor terminals. If the compressor is hot, allow the overload to cool
before starting check. Using an ohmmeter, test continuity across the terminals of the external overload. If you
do not have continuity; this indicates that the overload is
open and must be replaced.
Select the proper amperage scale and clamp the meter
probe around the wire to the “C” terminal of the compressor.
Turn on the unit and read the running amperage on the meter. If the compressor does not start, the reading will indicate
the locked rotor amperage (L.R.A.).
25
Single Phase Resistance Test
WARNING
1.
Improper air flow over the evaporator.
2.
Overcharged refrigerant system causing liquid to be
returned to the compressor.
3.
Restricted refrigerant system.
4.
Lack of lubrication.
Remove the leads from the compressor terminals and set
the ohmmeter on the lowest scale (R x 1).
5.
Liquid refrigerant returning to compressor causing oil
to be washed out of bearings.
Touch the leads of the ohmmeter from terminals common
to start (“C” to “S”). Next, touch the leads of the ohmmeter
from terminals common to run (“C” to “R”).
6.
Noncondensables such as air and moisture in
the system. Moisture is extremely destructive to a
refrigerant system.
7.
Defective capacitor.
ELECTRIC SHOCK HAZARD
Turn off electric power before service or
installation. Extreme care must be used, if it
becomes necessary to work on equipment
with power applied.
Failure to do so could result in serious injury or
death.
Add values “C” to “S” and “C” to “R” together and
check resistance from start to run terminals (“S” to “R”).
Resistance “S” to “R” should equal the total of “C” to “S”
and “C” to “R.”
In a single phase PSC compressor motor, the highest
value will be from the start to the run connections (“S” to
“R”). The next highest resistance is from the start to the
common connections (“S” to “C”). The lowest resistance
is from the run to common. (“C” to “R”) Before replacing a
compressor, check to be sure it is defective.
GROUND TEST
Use an ohmmeter set on its highest scale. Touch one
lead to the compressor body (clean point of contact as
a good connection is a must) and the other probe in turn
to each compressor terminal. If a reading is obtained the
compressor is grounded and must be replaced.
Check the complete electrical system to the compressor
and compressor internal electrical system, check to be
certain that compressor is not out on internal overload.
Complete evaluation of the system must be made
whenever you suspect the compressor is defective. If
the compressor has been operating for sometime, a
careful examination must be made to determine why the
compressor failed.

Unit Runs Too Much.
Possible Solution
Check the cooling capacity of your unit to
ensure it is properly sized for the room in which
it is installed. Room air conditioners are not
designed to cool multiple rooms.
Check the heating capacity of your unit. Air
conditioners are sized to meet the cooling load,
and heater size is then selected to meet the
heating load. In extreme northern climates,
room air conditioners may not be able to be
used as a primary source of heat.
This may be due to an excessive
heat load in the room.
If there are heat producing appliances in use
in the room, or if the room is heavily occupied,
the unit will need to run longer to remove the
additional heat.
It may also be due to an improperly
sized unit.
Be sure to use exhaust vent fans while cooking
or bathing and, if possible, try not to use heat
producing appliances during the hottest part of
the day.

WALL PREPARATION:
STEP 1
The wall opening required for a “WSD” SLEEVE is 17 1/4” high by 27 1/4” wide.
STEP 2
LINTELS must be used in opening of brick veneer and masonry walls to support the material above the “WSD”
SLEEVE. The following considerations should also be given:
A. Adjustable SUB-BASE SB–89 or other unit support must be provided for panel wall type construction
and for walls less than 8” thick.
B. A minimum distance of 1” must be allowed on all sides of the unit to adjacent wall and floor. Where the
sub–base is required, the minimum distance from the floor to the sleeve must be 3 1/2”. To minimize
chances of short cycling of the compressor, the minimum clearance between the ceiling and the top of
the unit should be 24”. (See Figure 1).

INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS:
STEP 1 The “WSD” SLEEVE should be positioned so that the DRAIN EXTENSION extends a minimum of 9/16” beyond the
OUTSIDE WALL (See Figure 1).
STEP 2 The “WSD” SLEEVE must extend a minimum of 7/8” beyond the INSIDE WALL.
STEP 3 The “WSD” SLEEVE must be installed level side to side.
STEP 4 The “WSD” SLEEVE must also be installed with a downward tilt toward the outside of the building. If a level is placed
so that it rests on the FRONT and BACK UNIT REST as shown in Figure 2, a properly installed unit provides a 1/2
bubble slope to the outside of the building.
CAUTION: SLEEVE projections and leveling precautions must be observed to prevent the entry of water into the room.

SLEEVE INSTALLATION:
STEP 1
After unpacking the “WSD” SLEEVE from the carton, remove the corrugated FRONT PANEL.
For immediate installation of sleeve and chassis (skip if installing chassis into sleeve at a later date):
Remove the rear WEATHER PANEL. Reverse grille and place lower edge into sleeve tab (Friedrich logo facing
out). Align slots with screw holes. Secure grille with screws.
Place “WSD” SLEEVE in the wall opening following the instructions given in the INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS section. Attach the SLEEVE to the INSIDE WALL by driving two #12A x 2” screws in each side of the
SLEEVE (see Figure 1.). Shim at the top of the SLEEVE, midway between the sides. Drive one #12A x 2” screw
in the top of the sleeve, close to the shim. Install screws from inside the SLEEVE. If the wall opening is not
framed with wood, use expansion anchor bolts or molly (toggle) bolts (not provided).
STEP 2
Once the SLEEVE has been installed, check the LEVEL again to be sure the 1/2 bubble downward tilt is maintained. Apply shims, if required, to maintain the proper slope.
STEP 3
Caulk the perimeter of the entire opening on the inside and the outside between the SLEEVE and the WALL.
STEP 4
The corrugated front panel removed in Step 1 above must be remounted back in place if masonry work is to be
done and/or if the “WSD” CHASSIS is to be installed at a later date.

Remove the black rubber gasket from the air discharge plenum of the air conditioner (see fig. A). Look inside the wall sleeve and
check to see if a black rubber gasket is already in place along the bottom front (see fig. B). If one is not in place, thoroughly clean
the sleeve area between the front unit rests and the raised ledge (see fig. B). Once this area is clean and completely dry, peel the
orange backing from the gasket and apply it to the base of the sleeve (see fig. B). Once the gasket has been properly applied, the
sleeve is ready for the air conditioner to be installed per the installation instructons.
