    Need to replace cond. unit.
    Comp was replaced about 5 years ago. It is a copeland
    JRL4-0500-IAA-958
    The evap has a pump that pumps the condensate up to a pan on top. There is a coil of copper tubing in the pan that the hot gas flows thru before it goes to the air cooled condenser.

    What cond unit should I use for replacement?

    Anybody have exp. with this puppy?

    the unit in that case is Copelans's CopeEvap unit, used in self contained units that have minimum condensor or poor airflow. A standard unit will usually go off on high head. Get the Copeland unit model (probably FBEH-0050) and go to your Copeland distributor and get cuurent CopeEvap model. Usually not stocked, so be prepared to wait. Or you can just change commpressor which won't be an axact fit.

    United refrigeration reccomends a MBFH-0050-IAA-109

    Will this work with the original evap?

    MBFH-0050-IAA not a CopeEvap unit, will probably not work
    the "E" as 3rd letter represents CopeEvap
    they are probably reccommending that based on nominal HP and don't know what CopeEvap is

    if your unit was an FBEH-0050-IAA then Copeland suggest an M2EM-0048-IAA R134a unit (can use MP39 if desired)

    Mccall says they are 90% sure that the original cond unit was a FBAM-A050-IAA

    What does this cross to?

    the FBAH-0050-IAA crosses to MBFH-0050-IAA
    the FBAH did not have facitities for coppper tube in drain pan so double check with with manufacturer. if it really was an FBAH the the MBFH will do fine
