Low Load Warning
by: Anonymous

If this unit has a built in dryer (IMD) the low load warning is telling you the unit does not run loaded long enough to generate the heat required to regenerate the MD drum.

There is a kit available to remedy the problem or, you can find a way to run the unit loaded longer. That warning will not clear right away, it has to have a percentage of load time over a certain amount of time before it clears.

If this alarm is on a new VSD+ machine, it may mean that the compressor is not running long enough to build up adequate heat up in the oil system. It may also be a false alarm that can be resolved with a controller program uodate. Either way, contact your local AC customer center and they can take care of it for you.

Is this a new compressor, or just new to you?

If the former, A-C should be fixing it.
