Question about Heating & Cooling
How do I fix a bosch portable air conditioner which is leaking at the bottom?
Leaking water? or refrigerant?
if water i would suggest a good sealer/adhesive to seal any cracks in the drip tray, and ensure all pipework insulation is intact and replace as required...the cold pipes can condensate and sweat giving water problems...
if refrigerant, you will need to have:
im presuming all the gas has leaed out hence no reclaim equipment
Blow torch/Oxy Acetalyne rig
Nitrogen Oxygen free
Refrigerant suited to unit
Leak detection spray
You must be adequately competent to carry out such a repair!!!
1, Pressure test and find leak using leak spray
2.vent system of Nitrogen
3. braze broken pipework
4. repeat 1 and 2
5. if no leaks found vaccum system out with vac pump to suitable torr
6.charge to required weight
like i say only a professional should carry out system repairs.
all the best
