Can anyone help me with some specs on a Trane 2.3 ton ClimaTuff Scroll model SPR028B1RPZ? I'm going to use it to replace a Copeland Scroll in my Dukane heat pump. Specifically, I need to know what size Rotalock fitting adapters I'll need, or if I can bypass them and sweat the lines inside the Rotalocks like a regular stub?
Also, this is replacing a replacement Copeland Scroll that only lasted 18 hours before it started hammering and died. My HVAC guy commented on how quiet it ran we started it up, and we had 50 deg. air until it died. He says he has no idea why it failed. It was still pumping when it first started hammering, but then overheated and shut down. When he came back to check it out it started and pulled 10 amps as it hammered away, but it was no longer building any pressure. He has recovered the R-22 and I cut the compressor lines and verified that it still hammered before I disconnected the wiring. When I turned it over on my garage floor I got green oil, which I'm sure is from contamination, but i can't see where that would cause a failure within 18 hours of replacement.
Any thoughts on this would be great before we chance another new scroll compressor.
I have to admit this is a lot more complicated than fixing hot tubs!
