    Taylor 340 Slush machine

    Hey folks, I have a Taylor 430 Coolatta machine from a DD that has a weak compressor.

    I called Taylor for a replacement and even with my tech discount its over $1100

    I went to United and they were able to cross it to a Copeland compressor for $600. Much better; only the piping is all different and my concern is fitting it all in this tight box.

    Has anyone successfully swapped a compressor in one of these that was not an OEM compressor?

    I've done it on a Taylor 707, it was tight, but it did work.

    As long as the performances curves are a close match yes I've used non OEM pumps!

    I work on a lot of Taylor machines...The cost might be higher because Bristol went out of business. If they cross reference, I don't see why you couldn't use the copeland, but you might end up only getting one or two bolt holes of that compressor to line up. Whichever route you take, before starting it back up check how sharp the scraper blade is. This is a big factor in how well a machine will freeze down and they are inexpensive to replace.

    I am not familiar with that model # of unit, but Taylor's use the torque coupling and proximity sensor for viscosity on the units, when that is not working within spec'd ranges, the unit does not respond.
    Make sure you do not have a broken spring that will throw your off.
