    Angry YLAA Expansion Valve

    Does anyone know why York discontinued the TXV on the YLAA and now changed them to EEV?

    I priced a job in December and they quoted me the TXV at that time, now the customer wants to do the job, the TXV has been discontinued and I've to put in a EEV, on both systems.
    Price has increased about 5 fold

    Prolly because of the earlier warranty failures.

    Requote the job. When the factory changes the scope of work, all you can do is comply.

    I didn’t know they discontinued the TXV. Of course, the Danfoss TXVs were junk on their best day.

    Yep Ill have to re-quote, but its a bit annoying to be honest. I might try local supplier to see if they can get the TXV, but it is likely an OEM part.
    Have any of ye installed the EEV on these chiller as a retrofit?

    Anyway's thanks for the advise guys. Happy St. Patricks day...

    I have . It comes as a kit and is pretty easy except for some miscellaneous copper fittings and insulation you may need. The Sporlan EEVs work very well. The Danfoss EEVs suck and are only slightly better than the Danfoss TXVs.

    Yeah, careful replacing an OEM TXV with an off the shelf....the manufacturer specific may have a different turn down ratio.

    jay, is york still using danfoss after the warranty failures?

    I do not know. I wouldn’t put the Danfoss back in anyway.

    That funny, I had a ylaa last year that was almost looking like low charge or faulty exv. Talked to factory and they said exv was out and replacement was txv. Went through all the wires and 1 pin wasn't making contact in Molex so easy fix really. That chiller has had a few pins come loose inside Molex', friday unit I guess. Running on r22.

    A new site has 3 ylaa with txv and there has been retrofits of removing OEM txv and installing 2 smaller txv In parallel. Running on 410a at -3c, strange choice but hey I'm no engineer.
