AC at rental house froze up. AC guy says it could possibly be the module, the motor, or both. Most likely just the module he said, but won't know until he replaces that. $435 for module and $550 for motor (plus labor). Unit is a 16 seer American Standard. 4 ton. Not sure of the exact model number... Around 6 or 7 years old...
Am I getting hosed here? If so, how badly??? Thanks for any input...:banghead
Solved the problem.
I was a renter, I shut it off let it thaw then turned it back on.
I told the land lord about it, he didn't care.
Agreed. Trane parts prices are all over the place depending on model.
can't think of any electrical components that would cause a freeze up
most common cause is low Freon due to a leak somewhere in the system
^this^ except in my case the most common cause seems to be restriction... Apparently we pile stuff in front of the system &/or close vents trying to cool certain rooms (& my Air Handler is ~20yrs old & the coils have had it)... my AC guy said my freon was 'fine' ??? but I need a new unit anyway...
There's more than two and your second one isn't a total "freeze up" issue.
As for the OP query: Make sure to have somebody look into the parts warranty!!!!! And I've paid (wholesale) upwards of $700 just for the motor/module, so Yes seems fair.
