u sure it isnt struggling to get to setpoint as its been off all weekend- programme an earlier start on monday morning, any vams onsite- start them up only when staff occupy building

Forgot to mention it has a fabric setting of 18c over weekend cos building is really poorly insulated I have it timed to come on at 4 on the Monday at 25c but it just dosent come on when I arrive on site both condensors are working but all the hot gas goes straight into the condenser coil. I turn both units off turn back on works great all week have checked schedules in I touch everything is set up correctly just a bit at a loss.

Ye tried saying that to the boss but won't pay the money thanks for your surgestions I changed the master pcb board today am hoping it's a software problem fingers crossed. I changed the pcb after reading similar problems worth a shot had a spare board.

had a tosh super multi- had issues with weak solonoid coils- when its in that mode on monday morning- stick a coil lifter on it- then unplug the coil off the pcb- once stuck a screw driver in a coil as its meant to prevent the coil from burning out- but i nearly burnt down a petrol station- coil melted, insulation on screwdriver melted too

Help need pls have got a reyq16m master and a 14 slave its controllered by a I touch controller problem is building is poorly insulated so units have a fabric setting to run over weekend at 18c. Monday it starts up at 4 at 25c for staff when they come in but it dosent seem to kick in and when I arrive on site both condensors are running but all the hot gas goes straight into the condensor coil. If I reset the units they work all week no problem but Monday morning same thing happens. Have checked I touch it is all set up correctly. Had a problem with a 4 way valve a few weeks ago but managed to free it. Am at a bit of a loss now and really need a bit of advice as u can imagine its driving me mad.

Everything is normal then, the hot gas should always go to the condenser coil...

OK, I assume you meant the outdoor coil so,
When you arrive and the hot gas goes to the outdoor coil, is the 4way valve's coil energised or not?

Sorry it's in heating mode so hot gas should be going to fan coils main 4 way valve is energised but sub 4 way isn't?

any external BMS connected to your I touch? That will hold the system out on Monday morning regardless of your I touch settings. Might be holding the system off over the weekend as well. Unplug it on Friday afternoon and see what happens.

Two threads merged.

Thanks for reply defo no external bms might try unplugging I touch don't seem to be getting any closer to solving the problem

Hmmm, seems odd that your I touch is programmed to come on 4 on Monday morning but doesn't. Any external connection at all? Fire alarm relays that could be dropping power on a weekly test? Had a similar problem in the past when a clever **** spark had wired the indoor units power through a contactor on a time clock.
