Time Delay
The time delay is 5 minutes long. The delay helps to protect the
compressor from short cycling in case the power to the heat
pump is interrupted or a pressure switch opens. The delay is
bypassed by placing the timer select jumper across the TEST
pins for 0.5 seconds.
Pressure Switch Circuit
The defrost control includes LO-PS terminals to connect an
optional low pressure (loss of charge pressure) switch. A high
pressure switch (optional) can be connected to the HI PS
terminals. See "Defrost Control Board" in the "Adjust Defrost
System" section.
During a single demand cycle, the defrost control will lock out
the heat pump after the fifth time that the circuit is interrupted by
any pressure switch wired to the control board. In addition,
the diagnostic LEDs will indicate a locked-out pressure switch
after the fifth occurrence of an open pressure switch. See
Defrost Control Board Diagnostic LEDs chart later in this section.
The heat pump will remain locked out until power to the board is
interrupted, then re-established, or until the jumper is applied to
the TEST pins for 0.5 seconds.
NOTE: The defrost control board ignores input from the low
pressure switch terminals during:
TEST mode
Defrost cycle
90-second start-up period
First 90 seconds after the reversing valve switches heat/cool
modes
NOTE: If the TEST pins are jumpered and the 5-minute delay is
being bypassed, the LO PS terminal signal is not ignored during
the 90-second start-up period.
