NEW AC COMPRESSOR MAKING NOISE


Did you add the correct amount of oil to the compressor? Is it overcharged? Did you evacuate all the air with a vacuum pump before charging? Was the fixed orifice replaced? If you are sure you did the install right and the oil and charge are correct you have another defective compressor

How much oild to put in the ac compreeser


unless you are changing a new compressor you should not have to add any oil in there. Do not put oil since the compressor already has enough oil in it. If you put oil in there and it already has oil, the AC system will not function properly because it has too much oil. How much oil to put in there is determined how much is already in there.

Installed new air conditioning compressor in 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix - how much compressor oil do I need to put in?


If you have not cleaned out the ac system,the ac system will have oil in it,but,the compressor most likely does not have any in it,so pour about 4 to 5 oz in the low side opening on the compressor before installing it,and turn the center nut of the compressor clutch about 8 to 10 times,oil will try and come out the high side,when it does,this will be enough turning.If the system needs more oil,add as needed when freon is put in the system.If the oil is not added to the ac compressor before installing,the compressor could be damaged.Please rate if this was helpful,thank you.

I am working on a 2000 nissan maxima and i have replaced the compressor and refilled the freon and oil and the presure relief valve keeps poping open with only one can of freon instaled it seems likethere...


Sometimes there are plugs in the compressor when shipped. Make sure that there is nothing in the compressor where the line attach. How much oil did you put in the system. Compressor are shipped with oil in them. The correct way to measure would be to drain the oil compressor and measure that amount. Then drain the new compressor and compare the amounts. Put NEW oil in the new compressor. Remember the compressor can not compress liquids. It is possible that there is too much oil in the compressor.

I installed a new a/c compressor on a 91 geo metro.Where does the compressor oil go into the compressor at?


The compressor's oil is mixed with and circulates with the refrigerant. R134a refrigerant can be purchased with or without oil mixed into it. There are also separate oil 'chargers' that inject oil without the refrigerant.

What kind of oil do you put in ac


Any aftermarket refrigerant additives (the ones you can buy at Wal-Mart, for example) come with the oil already in place.  It is a synthetic oil - for this reason, it is incompatable with older refrigerants, which used mineral oils.  A note of advice - if you don't know exactly what you are doing with the A/C system, take it to a professional, as you can really mess it up (overcharging the system, allowing impurities in, etc).  If you cannot afford this, at least buy one of the more expensive refrigerant refills that have the guage calibrated to the temperature outside.  Good luck!

Whrilpool Compressor


They are oil cooler lines. Your unit does not have an oil cooler so leave the plugs in & don't mess with them. Trust me just put the same compressor in the same model today. Appliance tech 10 years.
