    Yeah, the AS/Trane extended warranty gives an allowance that is basically just cost.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    Freon is a branded trademarked name owned by duPont. It's not coolant or any other stupid a$$ misconception of anything other than it is a refrigerant that transfers heat. It is r-22, or 410a or whatever you are working with. Sorry I had to recover a 1/2 lb of an overcharged system today and they asked me to put it in their car!

    Weigh them before you pull the wrapper. If its not giving you about 35 lbs gross, send them back. If yours still have the wrapper, still send it back.

    If the valve won't seat right and you've already opened it, you could try attaching a low loss fitting with the ball valve on the cylinder side and storing it back seated.

    Check leak at the stem after you backseat it.
    I havent opened the seal yet, it's a new jug well was, so the manf will refund me?? I know the supplier is gonna go ya whatever

    What's the brand?
    If supply house won't make it right, do us a favor and tell us who it is.

    I wouldn't ask for a refund, but insist on a replacement, especially if you bought it before this January. Don't let 'em talk their way into refunding you last year's price.
    This is not a can of beer. So, don't let them give you some bunk about 3 month shelf life or whatever.


    Whatever you do, don't remove the seal. It's obviously manufacturing defect. Probably a bad molding on plastic or burr on mating surface on the valve didn't seal up right and vented out. Seal defect happens from time to time.

    I've got an R12's can 12oz size in immaculate condition. Well, its unopened but totally flat. Manufacturing defect in seal.

    Call, get their name and all that.

    Appeal to authority.
    "Hi supply house, I talked to manufacturer and spoke to so and so and they suggest I take it back to my supply house".

    Unless its a 30 year old cylinder that doesn't even have "its bad for the ozone layer blahb lah blah" warning, they should take care of you.

    Dynatemp's warranty is generally 2 years from date of filling. Each cylinder has a date code on it.

    He is talking about after a repair on a system still in warranty, not a new jug of refrigerant.

    I had a unit come from the factory flat just one time, and it was about 5 years ago, and I got a full jug of 22 from the distributor, the mfg. really have the best of both worlds now, they can still sell dry units, and are not responsible for any 22 since the 22 units are shipped dry.
