Question about Carrier Heating & Cooling
Well I dont know what refrigerant your working wqith but I know the oil press sw's Ive dealt with open after a senmce of NO pressure Difference between Crank case and Oil pump Output pressure. You'll have to pump down the compressor and install an access tee for telling you what your oil pressure is and then subtract the suction pressure for true oil pressure. Usually the oil press sw is set at factory and is tween 7 and 20 psig. If it dosnt see this pressure a heater on the OP sw will energize and if the difference isnt senced withing the heater time limit it causes the points to open shutting off the compressor. If oil press is indeed low You could have bad oil, bad screen inlet to the pump or worn out pump or low oil. BEWARE LOW REFRIGERANT CAUSES OIL TO SETTLE OUT DURING A RUN CYCLE. So if you add some oil then Refrigerant Be ready to take the oil back out important to measure how much in so you dont take out too much. Low back pressure from anything from low charge to a TXV or other valve not feeding correctly. This pressure being low can allow oil to settle anywhere eccept tyhe crank case. The Refrigerant returning toi the compressor caries it back usually unless its piped in incorectly where the oil can trap OUT of the system and not be brought back. .
