Any ideas on what other diagnostics to try and isolate the problem? For info, a while ago I removed the diagnostic unit and hard wired it with a sensible relay and fuse.
Update. Found that by shorting the stat at the control box
it ran fine. Lashed an external stat by control box
and it ran fine! Therefore must be stat wiring
or connector at fault. Easier to check connectors than rewrite and found a 1.5k resistor in the stat circuit, removed this and it ran fine! Since researched and somehow this controls the compressor speed. By removing it it runs at its slowest 2K rpm
. Any thoughts on why removing it has made the system work ? Also anyone know the value of resistors to get different speeds?
