    put it in and it was stuck in heating mode :banghead:

    took top off, checked coil and everything, tap tap tap....nothing

    disabled indoor fan and let it run so the head pressure would build.....

    250.........300........350........

    about 375 it finally decided to shift, whole unit shook

    cooling fine now

    If it was a water cooled H.P.,could I close off the water supply valves to raise the Head Pressure? I had a similar problem with one of them a few weeks back!

    in cooling yes heating - disconnect the indoor fan assuming its energised for cooling and is stuck in heating, if its stuck in cooling and you want heating then yes
