This is a two part Bryant Air Conditioner...24,000 btu. model number 513..
through the wall compressor and coil. The second section is ceiling mounted air
distribution. Installed in 1994...R22 system. Has had regular preventative
The system turns on (several existing problems have been repaired, I think
at the original problem) ....compressor
starts normallly and runs for a few minutes. When it's time to cycle,
keeps running, getting louder and louder (at which point I shut it off).
waiting a period of time, the system can be started again and the
process repeats itself. Starts normal and then runs on.
It does cool properly....and the fans are operable both in auto and cont mode.
This is a cooling only unit.... (not a heat pump)
Coils have been cleaned. A diagnosis was made about the flare connection
to the metering valve leaking like a "sieve", but I think this problem might
been introduced into the system during diagnosis, as the freon level was
to be acceptable.
Any leads as to where the problem might be ???
Thanks in advance !!!
