if changing a compressor on a heatpump and the compressor locked up
I was concerned about oil return on suction acumalator is plugged?
I had a hard time recovering the refregerant on this heatpump.
I noticed ice is build up on suction acumalator.
I figured if ice is on the acumalator. the level where the ice is freezing is the level of oil in there or the level of refregerant boiling off.
correct me if im wrong, but its harder to remove refregerant that is mix in the oil than refregerant by it self.
so I figure maybe the hole is plug. = lock compressor
Is there any way to check if accumaltor oil return is plug without cutting it out?
