Okay, everyone hold on!
If anyone on here actually read each post fully and comprehended what they read then you would have realized that i am the OP. I started this thread. I understand what caused my machine to freeze. I never questioned why it froze only what to do about it now, i personally have never been in this situation so i had a few questions. I wasn't holding the recovery tech's hand while he recovered, i had other things to do.
If you looked at Post #28 and #34, i was simply asking "browntrout" what caused his machine to freeze. If you look, he posted that one of his mechanics just froze subcooler tubes....... I was simply wondering if he had water flow through the machine when it froze and if so, did the machine totally flood....
If everyone would just stop being keyboard warriors maybe this site would actually help ppl.
KnewYork- Thanks for your responses, they have been helpful!:
Its funny that you accuse me of not reading previous posts when in fact it was YOU that didn't read all the posts.... Read it again and maybe you'll understand what i was asking.

He had no excuse because he broke the cardinal rule of continuing to remove vapor below the freezing point.
Yes i understand completely, I have personally recovered and overhauled many machines and i understand proper recovery techniques. The only reason i decided to sub out the recovery process was because our large high pressure recovery machine was being used on another job at the time. I am the service supervisor for my company so even though i wasn't the lead mechanic on the job, you can see why this whole situation would fall into my lap.

It will be nice if put the information of what you do to fix the problem, haw it works and the final cost to the owner of the chiller...
I live in Mexicali, Mexico and it's gonna be good to know about the differential of cost.
HAVE A GOOD DAY
You might have a little trouble getting that information from Jon. He hasn't been on the forum in two years.
