I have a four year old York heat pump (E2FH model). Defrost mode
seems to work normally, except there remains a three inch high layer
of ice near the bottom of the compressor.
On other words, when the temps are cool enough, my compressor has a
permanent strip of frost around the bottom of the fins.
This has occurred since new - is it normal?
