I am a sheet metal apprentice with no service
experience at all. My worst nightmare came true today ,
walk in the door to a warmer than usual house. So I went
out picked up R-22, pump, and gauges. " How hard can this really be? " Well obviously for me anyway pretty tough! I am ashamed to say I do have a CFC card and have no clue whatsoever. I plan on taking service classes when I become a journeyman but I have ways to go yet. Any way I tried to pull a vaccum and I only managed to lose oil out of the exhaust on the pump. I hooked up everything according to the diagram that came with the gauges then reversed that.
Nothing worked! My company does not have a service division and after having a excuse to buy new toys I can no longer justify spending $150 on a tech coming out just to look. I have checked my filter I have cleaned my condenser. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am frustrated as all heck! Thank's
