    Well, that answers my question. I've got 5 machines with lithium chromate and 4 barrels of useless, at least to me, trane lithium molybdenum. Thank you for the help guys. I haven't had to evacuate...

    Lithium Bromide Dilemma

    To the guys who know absorbers: I have Carriers, as many of you already know. The 16JB series. Several years back, we "loaned" our remaining Carrene 16 to a hospital in dire need. We were sent...

    I had this happen to me as well on a R-22 dual evap cooler. Had been in 10 years when I took it over and had two 1 1/2 ton TXV's in it, when the condensing unit called for two 2 ton TXV's. Until...

    Do you have cubes on every pass of the evaporator? You said the evap was clean, so let's assume it is for the time being. If you have cubes on all passes, and your float switch is initiating the...

    H-10 Maintenance

    You will have to replace the battery at some point, but they are very reasonable if you just look around. I've replaced mine twice in 12 years and replaced one sensor. Other than the occasional tip...

    I got my H-10 PM in 1998. I had to have it refurbished by the factory once. I got caught on a roof with a bunch of tools in the rain one day. Live and learn. It doesn't like water, however, ever...

    Spent a few years on hoshis in the late 90's, just as the 404a machines started to emerge. What you're describing sounds like a board issue, possibly a stuck hot gas valve. If your head pressure is...
