Even my 202 wired to a 584A pops. The 634's & 684's I have are perfect. I don't know how I ended up with so many 534's. They work fine except that popping is annoying.

I tried the extra on my 534 with the wiring you suggested and it works fine. No more popping. 😊 now I have to get more so I can do the same to the rest of the 534's I have. Thanks for the tip.

The 534 has one 2-wire condenser, and those often eventually "leak", which causes that loud snap, or so I have been told.You can though convert your 534s to 634s. Just buy a 4 wire condenser, and make it electrically the same as your 634. Otherwise, you will just have to live with it.MikeMike
