    Airtemp/Chrysler Old unit

    Hello all,
    Has anyone heard of a Airtemp or Chrysler 3105-02R air conditioner? Very old unit I am looking to replace, but I cannot find anything for the life of me.

    Please let me know
    I am at a loss

    -Chris

    I think Fiat deals with those now, try giving them a call.

    I'm just being a smart ass. I've seen a few of those around, but I don't think any of them were operational by the time I saw them. Neat old pieces of history though.

    Calculate the load. Old equipment was often way off.

    The Airtemp name is being used by distributor R. E. Michel. No relation to the oldies. They just bought the use of the name from someone.

    If it is a chrysler that is an old unit. I ran into them in my early years and they were old then and that was late 80s ish.
    If that is the case do the load calc. House has probably had insulation added since then and probably newer windows. Be sure to check the walls and if they have been insulated.
    There is only one truly right way to do something, but there are thousands of wrong ways to varying degrees to do it.
    So the question is: If you don't do it right, then how wrong is it going to be???

    I just finished replacing two Chrysler Airtemp split units, both were 1970 units. There are small foil data plates on the evap coil that should give you toneage if they have not fallen off.

    I worked those in the late sixties to late seventies. If I remember correctly they had nice colors. Like orange and blue cabinets.

    At least they didn't sound like a haunted house when driving them around.

    The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.
