A stuck TXV in the evaporator will cause the compressor to go on bypass sometimes...just another thought for you to process..you'll need to take some pressure readings with your gauges.

nothing stops a trane, my hind leg :)

I got home late tonight so I could not suck (reclaim) any freon, I will do that tomorrow night.  Checked the reversing valve the best that I could. When in cooling mode when I remove the 24 volt power it goes clunk like it I believe it should.  It was in cooling mode.  I do not have very good luck in freeing a sticking reversing vale.  I have wacked them with a rubber hammer.  If anyone has any ideas let me know.  I know at work when a hvac shuts down the rvalve deenergizes and you hear a swhoss.  I don't hear that. When I went to heat when the compressor shuts off because of pressure I hear a swhoss that lasts for what seems like minutes.  I wacked the rvalve and the noise changed slightly.  I have used a strong magnet to try to move one before and it seemed to work.  I will post what I find.  Will check the pressures for the tvx. 
Thanks

I believe you are correct.  I will try to get one and do the silver work.  I really can't find anything else it could be.  I believe it could also be the problem of not keeping up on a really hot day.  I did notice that when the compressor shuts down that the temps at the reversing valve seem to equalize.
 
Thanks to everyone that responded.  Will let you know how it goes.

Yes I Have.  I would encourage any tips though.  I may be doing something wrong or missing something.  I must first locate one at a good price.  I think I'll add a site glass and a inline filter dryer for good measure.  I got some good silver and a nice torch, just now need the time and the part.

Be sure to use some sort of heat block on the new valve, such as a wet rag to dampen the heat from your torch as you solder the valve into place. Too much heat will ruin the cylinder seal in the valve worse than before. Use as little heat as possible to effect the weld. I personally  prefer a twin-tip torch for this procedure.

It has the original filter dryer that is located by the compressor along with the accumulater.
 Still finding the time to work on it.
Thanks
