    Plugged dryer and cap tube on reach in

    Attachment 332931 dryer looks like cement!Attachment 332941 these chunks were between the condenser and the dryer BEFORE the filter screen! Cap tube looked the same as the dryer for about 6-8 inches.

    can't see the pictures.

    But from the sounds of it...

    Sounds like someone put in a lot of leak sealant into a system with moisture.

    I can't see the images.

    It's just blue text that says "Attachment 332931" & "Attachment 332941"

    When I click on it. It says it's an invalid attachment.

    Looks like you got yourself a meth lab.

    Never seen anything like that. Could that be the dessicant from the drier? Maybe something in the drier ruptured?

    Lol! I poured a fair amount of beads out of the dryer that were loose. They weren't crumbly at all. The rocks in my hand were in between the dryer and condenser before the dryer screen so I can't imagine that material traveling through the cap tube, evap, comp, & condenser to accumulate there. Cap tube cleared up about 6-8" up. Also it was very dry, no sign of oil whatsoever. Compressor still running quiet though. It's a 134a system and the condenser had enough wool on it to knit a sweater!

    A friend of mine had an employee of his working on a lawyer's package unit. He was changing out the compressor and installed the LL dryer on the hot gas line. It ran fine for 2 or 3 months before the dryer came apart inside and stopped up the system. The material in your system looks like desiccant beads to me.

    That is what a drier that was working suppose to look like. It was asked to do more that's when the unit quit.
