It seems that as of late everytime I come to a heatcraft unit and find a low charge I always go to the evap and it's the distributor. I said most, not all of the time.
Here is the question,,, how many techs out there attempt to repair them? I haven't replaced one yet, have always made the repair. Today was the worst one ever, took me about five or six tries. Usually I get it on the first try, worst case scenario two tries.
I actually got slightly angry on this one and had to take a smoke break.
I have heard from others that work primarly in residential that if the dist is leaking the customer gets a new evap PERIOD.
I have also spoken to other guys that do refrigeration that they won't touch it just for the fact that they use a B tank and it's about impossible to do without oxy acetylene.
