Pressure Switch Circuit
The defrost control incorporates a pressure switch circuit that
allows the application of an optional high pressure switch. See
"Defrost Control Board" in "Adjusting Defrost System." During a
demand cycle, the defrost control will lock out the heat pump if
the optional high pressure switch opens. The diagnostic LEDs will
display a pattern for an open high pressure switch. See
"Diagnostic LEDs" in "Troubleshooting the Defrost System."
