    YT oil loss

    Have lost level in oil sump after approx 15-20 min of run times. Chiller then fails on oil pressure. Happened 3 times in succession and don't want to add any more oil. Before deciding upon opening machine would appreciate any opinions other than bearing wear or labyrinth seal. Hole in oil cooler? Would equalizing solenoid have any effect?(know it will on trane cvh). Would appreciate any input. York mod. YT G3 H3 E1-CNETMS ser.YGXM. Comp YDTH-108 Has old turbo mod2. Happens in fixed or variable setting. Thanks

    Have you tried valving off oil to purge as well as all lines going to purge? You need to get your post count up and apply for Pro status. I won't get detailed out here on the open forum.

    Sounds like a vent solenoid issue to me.
