    Scroll over charge

    Came across my 3rd scroll in as many weeks that has been overcharged. Readings all over the map and fluctuating before recover, evacuation and recharge. Two have air flow issues in the home that would cause low load that would appear as undercharge. Is this common on scroll compressors?

    Welcome!
    .


    The statement below is my signature and just my overall feeling towards our industry and does not necessarily pertain to you nor this thread.


    There really isn't a legitimate excuse for not doing the job correctly!

    Overcharge and air flow issues are common, scroll has nothing to do with it.

    Did your co. install these? Did you try another MGA ? You won't get many answers until you get your post count up and prove that you're not a maintenance man.

    Not sure what you mean by post count. What is someone posting to prove themselves. To answer your question my company did not install any of these units. We were called in after other companies had condemed the units. I wasn't asking for a solution to a specific problem. We got all three units working correctly. My question was related to the scroll compressors and how they act with overcharge. On the 2nd unit even called a local guy with 30 plus years and ask if it was possible for overcharge to cause the symptoms and he had to come see for himself to believe. At first he said scroll had nothing to do with it. Changed his mind after seeing the compressor perform after removing 3 times required charge.
