Might as well add a drip leg to that thing! HA!
Actually, in the "Old Days", we got by without roll-out switches by properly maintaining the equipment. Today everyone thinks that once it's installed, nothing should ever have to be done with it. ...
Actually I think this was a professional hit! I doubt the forensics people would even recognize this stuff! LOL! Did the installer get his $50,000 for this job? Get the installers name, I need a...
Geez! Did you fix the access panel from rubbing on that sucker, or what ever was doing this? Was this pic taken recently or back in 96? And, was that a factory repair? It's sad you have to find...
Thanks for the thread. Looks like a big debate over those L.L. Driers being on the discharge lines.
Mine had two L.L. Driers on it, so I removed the one on the discharge line, (a Parker L.L....
Valves went bad, not a burnout. Did an acid test, is OK. I did install an oversized HH drier though, just for safety sake. The problem is oil return. Line set isn't set up to return the oil to the...
But it MUST be installed in the common suction line after the reversing valve. Problem is, many units don't have enough room to install them without re-piping the whole thing.
Talking about air-cooled! Did anyone take out a marker on your boss?
Ya it's in backwards, and how many times do you see this? Me, more than enough. I also see A/C driers on heatpumps!
I agree! Nice piping job. Too bad the electricians aren't up to snuff though. Shouldn't that be EMT(my bag, rigid, you're right piper) with weather-tight fittings instead of weather-tight flex,...
Here's another reason for not working for a Subway.
This is from a compressor failure/replacement I just
went through. Notice that there are two liquid line
filter driers on this unit, and one is...
This unit was a 1/2 ton system. When he changed it to R-22, he "up-sized" the compressor and evap. to 3/4 ton. I suggested that he should change the entire condensing unit out and go with R-134A. ...
Here's one that I actually watched someone do.
This person was converting an R-12 system to
an R-22 sytem without changing the condenser
size. Obviously he had high head pressure and
Nice braze job, and I especially like that kinked liquid line right after the sight-glass! HA! Is this person trying to bypass cloning and make his own octopus?
Building looks pregnant!
Reminds me of the units I saw in Bangor, Me. when I was starting out. The crushed ones that is. The ice is really heavy, and the snow, the snow, God!
Reminds me of when I saw the same thing on a heat pump. Except they forgot to put the piston in. Worked great in cooling, but the heating was screwed. How it worked in cooling is beyond me.
Good God! Tell me that thing wasn't still working. Did you get it working for some reason or did they accept getting a new one?
By the way, that's a L.L. Drier on the suction line.
Here's something I ran into at a hotel.
Repaired by their "Kitchen Mechanic".
This was originally a Wolf 6 drawer,
under a griddle. This is...
What's wrong with this picture. They called that the unit isn't cooling enough. Kinda obvious, and that liquid line runs over 150 ft.
Too bad they didn't mount it to the deck above.
I was wondering where I left that darn screwdriver???
To the first pic:
There's nothin wrong, they just hooked up to the wrong condensate drain lines. Everyone knows water flows uphill!
