Hello to all,
I have a five ton Goodman R-22 condenser I pulled out and replaced with a new one last year for a customer.
Problem: I took this unit out, stored it, but I didn't write down what was wrong with it. I did closed down the refrigerant shut off's. I don't know if it has a huge leak or a bad compressor.
I wanted to run it to see what is wrong with it.
I am thinking of connecting a copper loop (few feet long) between the suction and discharge lines, fill it first with nitrogen, check for leaks.
If I find no leaks, I can run a temporary line voltage and see if the compressor will kick on.
What do you guys thinks of my methodology?
