    You put a filter drier to your lips?

    Okay, and I'm not questioning your methods (just judging them not so silently), and I'm sure it costs more to do it this way, but couldn't you cut the outgoing side off first, then shoot some nitrogen through the liquid line service valve?

    What is that going to do? I'm looking for resistance! Also i would rather blow through some copper than wash my hands in a public restroom only to grab the nasty door handle on the way out!

    Okay, your selective germaphobia wins this argument.

    Do you blow into new, known unblocked filter driers to compare resistance?

    How do you determine if you have a blocked cap tube for that matter?

    I'm just yankin' your chain at this point, ignore me.

    An unblocked LLFD is like blowing through a straight piece of pipe. No resistance at all! Try it sometime! Just be careful of the flash fire!

    I'm having a very hard time wrapping my head around paint thinner, wow... That's the beginning of a soon to be dead compressor.. I know desperate times call for desperate measures sometimes but properly addressing a burnout compressor can never be replaced with paint thinner.. Just saying

    Clearly the paint thinner did it's job and thinned the paint on top of the compressor, making it bubble. Causing the appearance of shell inflation. It's all an optical illusion.

    Paint thinner couldn't possibly work because it's not labeled for use in HVAC equipment. Otherwise it would be labeled "HVAC Thinner". Maybe even "flush" by a cocksure marketing company.

    That's how everybody KNOWS it caused a catastrophic failure.

    It's like when you hear Willie Nelson gets arrested, everyone automatically assumes it's for possession of pot.

    But "a paint thinner explosion" is completely inconsistent with the facts as presented.

    After the paint thinner was used for flushing the system (the not compressor) - the system and compressor were evacuated to well below the flash point of paint thinner, charged with refrigerant, and then operated - with the compressor pumping refrigerant. After some period of that operation the refrigerant was removed, the compressor removed from the system, and operated repeatedly pumping air against a closed suction port.

    You conclusion is inconsistent with the above. How could paint thinner have survived the above process and then only afterwards caused an explosion?

    I'm with you on the paint thinner.
