This is one of the newer ones designed to run in winter with cool
I assume this means it has defrost cycle.
Anyway I have heard it, in the past run for few minutes with no fan.
I assume it was doing the defrost cycle. That was summer, it was pretty
rare I'd hear it do that.
Now in November (it's running in cellar year round).
It went into this compressor running with no fan. And the compressor
was much louder than normal.
It stopped on it's own. Seemed like lots of heat coming from the unit.
I turned the humiditstat down to fire it up and it started up normal.
I put setting back to normal and in the middle of that same night it
was doing it again (loud compressor, no fan). I finally just shut the
It's not that cold 55-60 F
The humidity is not that high either I have it set for 50% (outside
it's probably drier).
Do these units have temperature sensors to make it defrost more often.
Is this defrosting?
Is it possibly miscalibrated and defrosting more often than it should?
It's Soleus-Air 65 unit.
