    Oil Level?

    What should the oil level on the sight glass be on a KAJA-011E-TAD-800 Copeland compressor using R404a refrigerant?

    Lack of airflow destroys compressors.

    About half is a good guideline, but as long as there is oil in the glass, I don't get too excited..

    Make sure that the system has been running correctly for a while before adding oil.

    It isn't hard to overcharge a small system with oil.
