That's what i said. When i first open the unit i was like WTF?? REALLY??? Needless to say the owner said every year the cooling has to be repaired 2-3 times. I showed him the pics, as why you have restrictions all thru out the system. When I Hooked the gauges up, brown oil/r-22 came out of it, compressor still worked though.

Many years ago I got a call from a homeowner who was trying to install his own condensing unit. When I arrived I could see lots of melted soft solder on the ground but not a drop on the piping. I asked what was up? He said no matter how long he held the soldering iron on the pipe the solder would not stick!
He pulls out an electronics soldering iron! He was amazed to see how quickly and efficiently oxy acetylene was at brazing those pipes.
