My heat pump outdoor unit starting blowing a breaker and the tech who came out said the compressor was shot because the sump pump heater had shorted out and since it was all one unit he couldn't replace the heater but he bypassed it to get it to work in the short term. Then of course gave me a quote to replace the entire unit for 6k since his hot wire may not last. After a little research the non replaceable part costs about $50 but he disconnected it from the main unit so it wouldn't short out and I can't tell where to reconnect it when I get the new one. Two black wires come off the old one. One was capped off and probably connected to another capped off wire but the other had a connector on it with probably 6 other places it could be connected to on several different modules. Anyone have an idea on where it might go or a picture other than a wiring diagram that might help?
There is a cylinder with several connectors open, says for starting motors on it maybe a starter relay? Another multi connector with a red coil on it and one connector open, a black rectangular connector with a few slots open way T
too many options.
I may call the service guy back to see if he'd tell me but thought I'd try here first.
