    I was able to get the service manuel and the IOM from local supplier. I guess maybe I was looking more for precautionary measures that may be related to the machine. Or things common to that model. I guess when it comes down to it it's just a screw machine weather it's a trane or what have you. So I'll take that knowledge and apply it. Thanks.

    One thing I can't stress enough on these machines.... DON'T OVERCHARGE IT WITH TOO MUCH OIL! Not even by 1/2 gallon.

    As far as changing oil, am i right to say that based off an oil analysis, would be the only reason for changing it? I don't believe they require even changing the oil filter every year. More so based off pressure drop. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    That's correct. Don't mess with the oil or filter unless there's a problem.

    And if it is broke...... fix the problem not the symptom - low oil level is a symptom of a problem in the machine or operation. While on the quotes don't add to the oil charge unless there is a pool of oil under the chiller or, specifically for falling film chillers, the problems will get worse

    Don't use Tech View unless you know what you are doing is the best advice I can give you because inexperience and Tech View don't mix

    Appreciate the insight fellas. Actually got into a little today. So I got my feet wet. Unloader is leaking by, never could build pressure nor would my compressor load up. From sound of building " engineer" they've had some issue w this chiller w previous contractor. Fun fun.
