The next control is the pressure control. The pressure control is a switch that, when working as a high-limit safety, opens on pressure rise. The switch can be either a micro switch or a mercury switch. The pressure control is wired in series with the LWCO, the rollout switch, and the spill switch. There are a few things to remember about pressure controls. First, the cut-out pressure should never be set higher than 2 psi. This is plenty of pressure for most residential one-pipe gravity systems. Higher pressures are inviting problems.
The largest reading was from 1 to 3, and would be the reading through both windings so that would be from 1 through common to 3. This tells you that the 2 terminal is the common terminal. “You have identified the “C” the common terminal as the number 2 terminal,” Bob explained. ”Now we know from process of deduction what the other 2 terminals are. The shortest winding with the least resistance is the run winding so terminal 2 to terminal 1 is the smallest resistance making the 1 terminal the “R” run terminal. The only terminal we have left is the “3” terminal and that makes it the start terminal. You can now take the red wire and put it on the run terminal, the white wire on the common terminal and the black wire on the start terminal. “
The book also includes end of section review questions and exercises that can be torn out and handed into the instructor for grading. A separate instructor supplement containing the answers to the end of section exercises is also available.
Bob and Tim are at a job where a technician from another company could not figure out the electrical, so he just put the panel back on the electrical compartment and left the job. It is a heat pump and the compressor wiring is all loose. They need to figure out how to wire it back and find out the problem. The homeowner said the original call to the other service company was because of ice build up on the outdoor coil. Bob and Tim talked to the homeowner and explained that because the weather was cold and damp, ice buildup was expected on any heat pump in this kind of weather, but they would check the unit and see what was going on. The heat pump compressor was not running and the home was being heated with the auxiliary heat, so the first order of business was to get the heat pump operating. They went outside and noticed the ice had melted from the outdoor unit due to an above freezing day. The compressor was not running; however, the fan was running. They looked at the compressor and discovered the wires to the compressor were all disconnected, and the ends were taped to make them safe. “
