    Little coke cooler , 55 degrees

    like 3 foot tall , glass door , 134 10 oz

    customer had me take a peek while fixing a deli case

    No access ports ofcourse and i didnt have any pierce valves

    Cond had a small blanket of fur , cleaned that off

    Feeling around , the line line off compressor is kinda hot going to cond, and the compressor shell kinda hot as well , but the tube bends on the cond are ambient at top and bottom.

    drier has been replaced before judging by the aweful braze job , and its slightly cooler than ambient to touch

    all fans working fine

    I guess its time for another drier and cut out few inches of cap tube ?

    Wonder how the tech charged the system who installed the filter dryer, (No Access Port)
    Betabass



    Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.

    Why do it half-assed?

    Install a LL drier with a built-in access valve. Use one of those little spun copper driers.

    What you going do if cutting back the cap tube doesn't solve the problem?

    Call Coke and ask them to send a tech out.

    Call the manufacturer and insist it is under warranty. That's what the customer would do.

    Does it have a brand? I may be able to get literature/cap tube size. We do work for coke. I've replaced compressors, cap tubes in stuff like that before.
