Reversing Valve Coil - Troubleshooting

If 24 volts is present at the coil, the coil is probably bad. However, it should still be tested.

  1. Remove the screw that holds the coil onto the shaft.
  2. Slide the coil off of the shaft and unplug it from the wire.
  3. Set meter to ohms and test coil.
  4. Resistance should read between 13 to 16 ohms.
