Question about Refrigerators
Under normal circumstances 10% of the oil from compressor circulates with the refrigerant. Conditions which can cause excess oil to leave the compressor is starting from a shut down condition where oil is dissolved into the compressor oil. On startup the pressure is suddenly dropped in the compressor and the oil will boil out as the refrigerant leaves the crank case. In most cases the oil will return to the compressor as the system continues to operate.
If the compressor is in a continuous operation the problem can be the compressor itself that is causing the excess oil carryover. Other items that may cause a blockage is the WRONG oil being used in the system. In 48 years of refrigeration service I have never run into such a problem as you are describing.
