Appreciate it skw, will get my post count up and apply for pro cause i have alot of questions ha ha, my supervisor is just a manager so he really only cares about how much it will cost to repair, and the other maint. tech is as green as i am, so i really dont have anybody else to ask questions! The company i work for "supposedly" has a regional guy that i aam to ask any A/c questions but I have called him about 10 times in the last couple of months and he hasnt returned any calls. Thanks again!
Ive got a couple of classes coming up this fall, intro to ref. and comfort cooling at local tech school. We have most tools vacuum pump, gauges, micron gauges, recovery machine, recovery cylinders, scales, ox-acytelene torch, a fieldpiece sh/sc meter. Problem is trying to learn on the fly and under pressure without a more expierenced person to ask questions. i have done pretty good by reading as much hvac material as i can find but that cant replace expierence and all the little tips and tricks you cant find in a book.
Recover charge. And weigh it back in.
You either have an air flow issue or a leak that needs to be repaired, assuming an R22 system.
Best thing to do is to get a good evaluation from a reputable company and pay them to fix the problem. Easy as pie. Find a company tha guarantees their work the first time and let them figure it out.
From everything i have gathered, I do not think it is a airflow problem. I am going to recover, open and check orifice, install a new filter drier and sight glass which it does not have now, weigh in charge and see what happens. Thanks skw and beenthere, hope to get to pic your brain more when i qualify for pro board!
You say the evap coil is clean...have you cleaned it or are you only saying it looks clean?
How clean are the indoor blower wheel vanes? If you cleaned the evap coil but missed the vanes, you're not done yet.
