When it runs, the coils get cold, 1 pipe from the compressor gets hot, 1 gets cold (where not covered by insulation) and everything is golden. Other times, sound and fury (fan), but no dehumidification.
I went looking for a relay or something that might be stuck, didn't find one, but did find: "Klixon 4TM" and "Jahwa Positive Temperature Coefficient Thermistor" under a cover on the side of the compressor. The Klixon seems to be an overtemp protection device. The Jahwa thing is a mystery to me. It seems to have something to do with switching the start capacitor in/out of circuit. Do these things fail? Are they available to Joe Average as replacements? Is there a work around?
Any advice appreciated.
