"Newer Rheem systems have defective expansion valves"
Most of the Rheem RPNL equipment failures of the last 5 years or so are usually due to a defective expansion valve. All large domestic(USA)manufacturers of residential hvac equipment have had the same issues. Rheem installs their expansion valves at their factories so the expansion valve failures are covered under the parts warranty. Other manufacturers equipment is designed to have the expansion valve field installed by the installer. Those expansion valves have a 1 year parts warranty with no labor allowance. The point is if your experiencing issues with your Rheem system (the need to reset power, compressor overheating, freezing up coil) you need to have the expansion valve replaced. Any Rheem dealer can do the repair, not just whoever installed the system. The longer you wait the more likely you'll end up paying the cost of the repair of the defective expansion valve.
