I had one of these on my 2007 Winny. Worked great new. Never did blow fuses. Years later is began to show age with issues. One was it began to make an awful noise. Never did figure out the noise, think it was the bearings on the fan blade, only heard when on Heat Pump. But I did do some research. Found a link on IRV for removing the unit to work on it an to replace parts. Never did do it, but you can self remove if your handy. Also found that residential heat an air repair techs should have the ability to do repairs as the unit is not any different than what they normally work on.
Yours is running on 21 years now. Seems reasonable that a complete parts replacement might be something to consider. Self remove and get new parts. Or have a tech do it.

Basement AC

As promised I am back, with a question though. What is the difference between a hard start and a soft start? I have been busy and not had time to get any farther on the ac. The ac and heat pump both work with the generator. The last time we had it out 3 weeks ago we needed both. We had no shore power available so we could not try it that way. It's harvest season here in SW Minn. so I will not have time to do any more with it this fall unless we get an abnormal fall but even then I don't believe I will take a chance on removing it if that is the remedy because it could be 70 Christmas eve and _10 and snowing Christmas Day.

Thanks for the info. I must have had a brain fart as I usually google to find this info but for some reason didn't think to do this. It looks like I will be trying soft start on my ac's next spring. With two compressors I will need two at $300 each.
