Most of the electrical problems are solved. 2 out the three A/C units are functioning properly. The breaker for one of the units still gets hot, 110F. After checking all my previous wiring diagrams(from physical location), it looks like that one was grossly miswired from the beginning. As I replaced components I followed the schematic, not the original wiring config. All units are R-22, and one needs a evaporator and to be fully recharged (5 ton). Current draw the functional 5 ton unit is 27-28Amps.
1. Do you have experience of a breaker running hot after a bad "load"?
2. The cooling fan is rated for 2.2amps, its drawing .5-.7amps, the cap seems good, rpms seem ok, air flow seems good,(no rpm meter on hand).
Is this too low or OK?
3.I've seen the delightful EPA is heavily taxing R-22
, should I just repalece the unit with no freon?
