It is official. I killed my first appliance. After concurring with Doug at AS of Spokane my unit is dead. When the compressor tries to start the voltage drops to 98 and the Amps climb to 28. At least that what I could measure. Inside a funny warm electronic smell. That confirmed it.
I stop back by Tuesday to have the unit replaced/upgraded. I had him order a 15,000 BTU unit instated of 13,500. It comes with the hard start kit. The bed room was taking a long time to cool down.
The cost around $1400 for the unit plus install. Better than replacing the house unit!
I revived it with a brain transplant. THat's great bones!
It turns out I already had a 15,000 BTU unit. I still have the old style air box on the bottom. Doug completed the whole thing in a couple of hours. I was fortunate the weather was cool at night and i could sleep. It was over 100 here yesterday. I was happy to have the new unit.
