Carrier indoor coil replacement

Inddor Coil leaked and lost Puron resulting in no A/C function. Misdiagnosed 1st time and tech replaced 1 pound Puron. Not sure how much leaked out this time because system ran longer after knew A/C was not kicking in.
Doe entire Puron need to be drained and replaced with fresh/new product or can the lost amount just be replaced / charged?????

Yup, entire system needs to be drained, and leak needs to be repaired first before charging with freon.

after sealing the leak and test it is ok, evacuate the system for about 30 mins before charging it.

you may need a qualified tech to do that because you can not buy freon now a days.

you need to weld the leak also. you will need portable torch to weld copper pipes.

you will need vacuum pump to evacuate the system before charging with freon 22.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Puron leak


not all electronic leak detectors pick up r410a-puron. Evaporator coils are notorious for leaking puron. your coil should be under warranty.

I replaced my whole heat pump system 3 years ago with a Carrier Puron unit. The installer called me this week and told me that I needed to replace the puron after the third year at a approx cost of...


Tell him you already had it done. lol. Unless you misunderstood what he told you no! You don't need to replace the Refrigerant weather it's Puron or Freon. It doesn't wear out. Ever. If your system develops a leak and you loose the Refrigerant it will have to be replaced but you will know you lost it because the system won't cool and heat like it's supposed to. I would report the installer to the better business bureau.

I have a Carrier 4 ton unit model number 661CJ048-A which is charged with R-22 capacity is 9,25lbs. It has developed a leak at the evaporator coil. It has rust on the coils which from what I understand...


First your system is 22 and 134A is a auto AC refrigerant. I have never seen it used in residential ac. I have been in AC business for 45 years. The new refrigerant is 410A or Puron. But you can not use it. Your outside unit is set up for 22. Mix 134A with the oil used in a 22 system is not done. You need to get the correct coil for your system. They are going to make 22 for years. They now have a Drop in for 22 called NU22. I know times are tough but you may have to get a Service Tech anyway.

Coil leaking freon on the inside unit. Estimate is $2,100!


If indeed your evaporator (indoor) coil is leaking, the best option IS replace it (it may not even BE repairable). If you live in the USA and your furnace is getting old, a new ultra high efficient SYSTEM that qualifies for the tax credit would probably be a better option (Obama will pay 30%).

Carrier air conditioner problem


My Carrier unit did the same thing. It was low on refrigerant (Puron in my unit). I am worried I have a leak somewhere. Hopefully, it is not in the coil. The service call wasn't cheap either. Puron runs around $10-15 a pound and mine took several pounds to replenish.

Carrier evaporator coil


I recently contacted Carrier Corp after our routine annual HVAC check on our residential system indicated that our 4 ton AC unit and 3 ton unit had leaking evaporator coils.
>
They basically told me to shove it in a very curt letter - In other words even though a leaking evaporator coil is a manufacturing defect they will not offer any financial assistance in replacing the failed evaporator coils.
>
I spoke to several HVAC engineers and they indicated Carrier has a high percentage of evaporator coils and compressor failures on residental HVAC systems.
>
The copper wall of the evaporator coil is being drawn thinner than in earlier years and the R22 being acidic slowly eats through the copper tubing.
>
Evaporator coils should not fail according to the HVAC Engineers if properly manufactured.
