Got any kids? Reason I asked is my grandbaby stuck a toy down the toilet and it got hung in the pipe. That was a lot of fun.  :2funny: :rofl:

looked at the download info on the aircore unit but ther was no mention of the the size of the restrictor.i'll check more sites and maybe find what i'm looking for.mr. cheap came the smorning and cleaned out the mainline drain. that's done with.took the cleaner back to home depot for a refund. back to the restrictor valve in small line in outside unit. if the arcoaire unit has different size restrictor than the origanal comfortmaker .067 could this affect the temperture output.

if it's a mismatch that means it could have an affect on the temp output as you say. so i will con tact the guys that installed it. i'll try to get them to check without having to pay for this checkup. i'll post to let you know whats up.

EXM36F19A1 appears to be a 3 ton unit or 36000 BTU unit. How many square feet of living space are you trying to cool?

got in touch with an aircore tech he said that the new unit outside which doesn't have a restrictor in the small line valve like the origanal comfort maker had doesn't matter as far the the temp of air goes. that clears that question up. i took off side cover in attic unit made sure the sensing bulb was tight on the big line. it's positioned at the two o clock position. the instalation manual that came with the the arcoair unit shows an illustration of the sensing bulb at either the 4 oclock or 8oclock position. this from the instructions showing the instalation of a trx valve in the attic unit  if it didn't already have atrx valve . could this make a difference. should i change the position of the sensing bulb ?

If it is out of place how is it going to work right?Did you tell the installer you believe it is out of place?
