Hello
Forum
First off , thanks to the many knowledgeable technicians, contractors, and service people on this site.
Friday I ran into a heat pump call that threw me. Trane 10 yr old split system R22 high efficiency with txv in both sections.,In the cooling mode The head press, shot up to 410 psi. the suction press. 48 psi. the super heat was 40 degrees . the amp draw 4.8 on the comp. the outdoor fan motor was bringing plenty of air across the coil. The reverse-valve would not shift if I removed 24 volts off O terminal. I thought reverse valve problem or restriction somewhere. Any suggestion or reccomendations?

Thanks

Sounds like a restriction or the indoor TXV's power head lost its charge. And someone added gas to it to try and get the suction pressure up.
