My contractor replaced a 3 1/2 AC compressor ( Copelend) that failed via acid burnout. He used acid away and virgin Freon and the best part he left in the old gunked up contaminated compressor suction line Freon filter to feed the new copmpressor he put into service.
Of coarse the new compressor failed in just 13 months...my question would any of you HVAC pros leave in the contaminated suction filter after replacing a compressor that failed via an acid burnout? Even Copeland will not tell me that the suction line filter must be replaced under the above conditions.
if any of you pros have written instruction from Copelend that clearly state the filter must be replcaed please post the link to it
