Hi I have an issue with my heat pump . The reversing valve coil is making a loud buzzing noise. I took off one lead from the coil and I heard a flush and hp is now running in cooling. When I try to reattach lead to reverse valve coil it makes a loud buzzing sound. I am only reciveing 8vac at rv coil leads when compressor is running . Rv coil is a 24v. The wires coming back from the rv go to a relay and transformer. Why am i getting a excessively loud buzzing noise from the coil?

See if the bolt holding the solenoid is loose.

Low voltage

Most 24 volt devices require about 18 volts to operate reliably. You might have a loose connection or a bad relay contact causing the voltage drop. Work backward from the RV solenoid until you get a read of at least 24 volts.
