    Trane purge problem?

    The suction temp on my PRGCA 134A purge unit is dropping to 2 to 3 degrees. Is this normal during a cycle, or is it low on charge?

    Call a professional to check the purge and the chiller its on for issues . it could be a problem with either or both .

    He's just messing with you, what he really meant to say was put your email address in your profile and I'll send you the IOM for the purge.

    A minor suggestion to cals8. read the IOM intently "mr. professional" starting with the operation of the purge. That would be how and why it does what it does. You may actually answer your own question
    Once in a while everything falls into place and I am able to move forward, most of the time it just falls all over the place and I can't go anywhere-GEO

    I agree, read the purge manual. Pay particular attention to what initiates a pumpout cycle and you'll answer your own question.
