Rooftop Heatpump not cool

Penguin more like Gila Lizard. Won't cool!!!!

So, searched a bunch, scampered on roof (with someone nearby to call 911 if I goof up)...and video my stupid move.

Guess what I found???



That was the wire to the reversing valve!

I don't know what ate it,, but it also chomped on some foam and the power lead to The compressor.

Replaced wire, used high temp pushon female spade connectors. THHN 14 GA wire, I also ran the new wires inside larger than necessary shrink wrap to dampen vibration.

Next, I replaced all the foam because it wasn't sealing the airflow properly...

20 - 30 degree temp differential... ambient is 75. Is that good?

If you are getting a 20-30* differential, that is very good. Nice job.
