    Customer reset unit twice and it was running when I got there all looks good. The manual does not say much any ideas?

    Look in the history and see what caused the last 2 trips.

    check power supply - look for low/high voltages check connection slook for burnt/overheating connections

    575/600v units are notorious for crankcase heater issues

    There's usually 3 things that give that trip if I remember correctly. The wiring diagram should show you high pressure, over current and, compressor temp sensor. My experience has been that it is usually a faulty overload or bad temp sensor. When it is only an occasional nuisance trip I put "tattletale" type fuses across the safeties to determine where the trip is coming from.

    Pull the terminal cover on the compressors after you kill power to the unit you most likely will see a small round peckerhead with two terminals just below the main peckerhead, make sure those connections are tight if there is any play or corrosion clean em up/ put new terminals on the wires. Also check the aux's on the contactors if it calls for a compressor and the aux doesn't send a closure to the controls it will alarm i just cant remember what alarm it is. There's also some contacts behind the factory breakers on some of those units that also will send an alarm and lock out that circuit if it doesn't see closure as it thinks the breaker is tripped.


    Good Luck and god speed :mrbill:

    Tighten the Compressor and Contactor terminals. Also ohm out contactor coil(s)

    Compressor trip? Which compressor? Put it in test mode and run eveything. Try to get something to fail in front of you. Are all of your condenser fan motors running? (High head trip) Any burnback on the compressor wiring both in the terminal box or contactors
    ( High amp draw/winding sensor trip)? Contactors ok? Connections good on safeties (high ohms trip)? Compressor circuit breakers ok on must hold/must trip? Sometimes it can take a bit to pin it down.

    This trip is very vague. It consists of the safety chain (as noted in the manual) which goes to the scroll board, the scroll board itself, and one more thing they don't mention anywhere.... The aux relays on the contactors.

    Really annoying that a tripped breaker takes out the entire circuit of cooling btw....
