    Oh Boy. I've been doing chiller service for 40 years (16 with Carrier), and I don't recall that Carrier ever published anything that could be construed as a "Tear Down Manual". The younger, inexperienced techs. would assist on several tear downs with experienced techs. until they had enough experience that they could gradually transition to lead tech. position, and pass on the knowledge to the next generation. There is so much "touchy-feeling" that goes on, in a rebuild, that I don't think you could adequately describe in writing. There are "Fits and Clearances" tables in the I.O.M. manual's, that give dimensions that must be held. There were bulletins published, when issues came up, that needed to be shared with the field. But, I don't recall ever seeing anything, in writing, that gives an actual procedure to follow, when tearing down and rebuilding chillers.

    19DG chillers were built in the 1970's. That's at least 40 years old. The first five digits of the serial number, should tell you when it was shipped. Any 19DG

    They had CFC-11 refrigerant back then. Has it been converted? Have the controls been updated? Is the purge original? Why are you even thinking about over hauling it? Just curious.

    It takes three people to do anything around here. Two do the work, one explains to the crowd of people who showed up when they seen smoke and flames.

    Regarding the Carrier Tear Down Manual- Thank you for your comments

    Thanks for your comments. The chiller is owned by a school corporation and all controls and purge are original. They have 300 pounds of virgin R11 stored.
    Leaks are the problem, and since the machine would have to be disassembled to regasket, it makes since to replace
    bearings and such at that time. I have found the "Fits and Clearances" listed in the IOM, but wanted to see if more
    detailed information regarding disassembly existed. Sounds like that is not the case. I know Trane dosen't provide
    this literature on their machines either. They do offer factory overhaul classes through. I'm really reluctant to take
    work on without more documentation.
    Thanks.

    Referteacher, Time out... let me clarify. I mentioned Trane for comparitive reasons only (between Carrier and Trane).
    Didn't mean to add any confusion to this. Just looking for a manual on the Carrier 19DG to assist with tear down.
    Sounds like a manual dedicated to this does not exist. Thats fine, and I apperciate everyones help (triggerhappy,
    Dallas Buster, Valdelloc) that has responded.
