    HXC Liquid Level Sensor

    Can we estimate the amount of refrigerant lost based on liquid level sensor reading?
    I have a repair to make and need to guess at how much refrigerant is needed to quote the job.

    30HCX161RY 500KA
    FACTORY CHARGE FOR CIR A IS 234#
    CirA @ 1.5 level EXV @ 64.5%
    CirB @ 1.9 level EXV @ 46.3%
    I have attached a screen shot for all circuits A and B analog values

    Thanks for your comments

    I'm doubtful a guess can be obtained like that . But I would say 60-90 # actually that's LL and exv % wasn't too bad.

    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.

    You're flyin' blind to try and quote an exact amount of lost refgt if you haven't seen the existing refgt pulled and weighed. TGL is probably close, but for my money, I'd estimate the range of refgt that it might be low, and tell them how much it'll cost per pound for charge adjustment, regardless of whether it's above or below that range.
