    Yes. Product is misapplied. Problem is that the original condensing unit is labelled R-12.

    Somewhere along the lines, someone decided to replace a semi-hermetic 3 phase pump with a hermetic single phase pump. Well, their cross reference went sideways and I'm stuck cleaning up the mess.

    Will probably do a TXV change and refrigerant change to 404.
    Now for a stroll down memory lane, excuse the dust................wasn't 502 low temp?

    I've seen 502 used in both med and low temp, but, yes, more low temp.

    Suction pressure on a MT 502 would be in the 50s. In the teens on 12.

    So-------------- wouldn't r12 be more better for med. temp? Meaning then 401? How about using 134? I'm not a reefer guy, just wondering.

    Had to do an emergency compressor changeout today. Meat WI cooler down.

    Really old, really hacked up piece of crap. Originally running R-12, now runs 401a. Compressor is only about 18 months old and the manager is screaming that it is brand new.

    So I gets the pump and get it up and running then I start to investigate. The unit was a bit low on gas, but the strange thing is that, when I start looking at the compressor performance data, it is a medium temp R404a compressor. I did a double check of the model number, but they matched. I did a like-for-like replacement.


    Well, with R-12 range pressures, this R404a compressor is not a happy camper. I don't expect it to live very long, either.
    JP,
    Too high of a 'displacement/HP ratio....we use to use a HBP R12 for LBP R502 on the old days but that 404a is trying to swallow too 'heavy/thick' of a gas so it'll overload it...

    You're correct here, I think we must make a stand for at least a small level of integrity here.....NO SALESPEOPLE or we completely lose any shred of decency.....

    I sold 4 more furnace installs today, but I'm not a real salesman. Its funny, the lazier and more non-chalant I've become in my sales over the years, the better my sales have been. I used to prepare elaborate presentation books; now I show up, figure out what they need, quote it, and give them the names of a few other good contractors for price comparison, and it seems to work.
