Any of yall run into this much. Tore down 2 Copeland K body compressors this week. We got slow so I got bored and started tearing them down to see what was wrong. One was 2 years old and the discharge port on the valve plate had blown into many pieces. One piston was coming out of the hole also. It had very black oil in it...may have gotten just a tad warm I think.
The second compressor was about 15-20 years old and I was 110% sure it had a broke rod in it from listening to it. Well it didnt. All the reeds were bent upwards just a itsy bit. Again another one of the pistons on it was coming out the hole. I could put my finger where the piston should have stopped at and it would raise it. Also on this piston you could get a little play in twisting it.
Just curious if its a common finding when tearing one down.
