OP said condenser was clean.
Suction pressure of 22# gives you a saturated suction temperature of 25 deg. Way to high for a domestic refrigerator. Sounds like a weak compressor.
An electric heat gun is handy to have with you. As you press in the arrow dart you can CAREFULLY warm the gasket.
As Dad said, pull the old gasket out slowly... if you break the dart channel, you...
You are incorrect-
Since 2010, the EPA has banned sale of "new air-conditioning units containing R-22".
Production of R-22 has continued since 2010, and in 2013 production and importation of...
I use a Triton T2 and have been very happy with it.
I think they lost their mojo back in the 80's. That's when the manufacturers started switching to 502 from 12, and began using circuit boards vs. the old mechanical controls.
Instead of the old...
What does the customer want? Cheapest price or an upgrade?
At least, the customers don't complain.
A box that old, that small... unless you are trying to get an education vs. a profit-
What are the dimensions of the case? Does it have a CPR valve?
Have you tried adjusting the TXV? Are you sure you have the right valve?
Is this a cold wall freezer? What is your suction pressure after the new valve was installed?
409-A is not a good replacement for R-12 at low temp- better to use MP-66 (R401-B).
Try not to...
Yellow Jacket 19110 and a gauge- good to go!
I read this years ago- google Willis Haviland Carrier: Father of Air Conditioning by M Ingels.
You didn't mention if the evaporator was clean. That's the #1 cause of freeze-ups on Hoshi's.
Also, try cleaning the screen on the water inlet valve before replacing.
1) have you tried Mani's replacement TXV? Special design for them- same for replacement compressors.
2) No need for a sight glass- charge by weight.
Try Central States Services for custom or standard gaskets. Dennis has always treated me very well. Good pricing and quality work. If you have an odd-ball problem, he can be a wealth of...
You get my 1000 post cherry!
These units are made in Spain, and a few years ago, I got a call at a local bar for harvesting problems for a unit purchased on the internet. The owners wife bought...
This is like pulling teeth. New York State covers 54,556 square miles. Care to be a little more specific?
And newbies wonder why no one gives a #$@!
DETAILED INFORMATION what you can do, and...
The owner got f*&ked by the installing contractor (hope it's not you).
I have found most bar owner/operators have no idea about the proper dispensing of draft beer. Your customer sounds like a...
My understanding is the max equivalent length of a forced air system is 25'. Each elbow is equal to 5' so...
25' + 5 x 5' = 50' So this dog won't hunt. Does the owner say if it ever worked?
Glad to see you sleeved the refrig piping thru the metal wall. Just finished re-piping a W/I freezer where the installer cut an access hole thru the metal covered top and just ran the piping. Over...
Are you having a problem with draft temp or foaming? How long of a run?
Tecumseh changed the part numbers a while back to K71-**.
I think this is the list you want.
