Question about Heating & Cooling

I'm working on a Weatherking 10PJA with a 24AH. Is that a muffler or filter/dryer coming off of the compressor discharge line? What type of metering device is on the indoor coil? Thank you in advance for your assistance.

It is a filter, probably to collect either moisture or contaminents. This unit most likley has a fixed metering device oriface where the evaporator connects to the line set.

Woods all fridge rp1816rs3. Does this have a thermal expansion valve and where is it located if so

Yes it is called a capillary tube and it is the tiny copper line that goes next to the larger copper lines coming from a discharge filter near the compressor. See the small copper line going to the discharge filter in the photo?

You have a severe restriction in the liquid line or at the metering device. I assume these pressures were taken running in the cool mode. I need more information to pinpoint the problem. I would not condemn the compressor until i eliminated all the causes for the odd pressures. Did this problem start suddenly?

Check compressor run amps is correct with a ampere meter. If less, it's under gas leak. Keep your arm on discharge line (smaller pipeline). If no heat means no gas in the system. Find leak and arrest it. Vacuum and recharge gas.Better service the unit and check. Due to condenser & cooling coil, air filter, blower wheel are dust blocked will result to very less or no cooling. Helpful?

Compressor will only build pressure to 75 psi and stop and compressor keeps running what could be wrong

If you can hear air bleeding off through the air filter when you turn it off then the check valve has failed on the compressor discharge to tank line and cannot overcome the tank pressure. If there is no air coming out through the air filter than the intake and dischare valves have become weak or are broken/not seating. Post your findings, I wil see if i can help I worked on compressors for 5+ years

Gardner denver air compressor is blowing oil, need help

Is this a rotary screw compressor? If so, is it blowing oil out of the air filter or out of the discharge air lines? If it's blowing oil out of the air filter you have a oil stop valve or minimum pressure check valve bad. If oil is coming out of the discharge air you need to change the seperator.

I have a goodman CKL36-IH. I was told the windings in the compresser are bad. Compresser runs but dosn't pump.Drawing a vacum,What goodman unit can I replace it with or can this be fixed?

Did you see the guages connected to the system? If the compressor comes on and pumps the line down to a vacuum then the compressor is working. It sounds more like you have a restriction somewhere in the system. Most likely at the metering device or filter dryer. You can use an ohmeter to check the compressor windings yourself. The compressor only has 3 wires, Com(mon), Start, and Run. With the power off connect one meter lead to the Com leg. Next connect the other to the Run leg and read the meter. There should be some resistance there but not a lot. Next connect that meter lead to the Start leg and read the resistance. It should have more resistance than the Run leg but not be open. Next you can connect one lead to the Start and the other to the Run and you should get the sum of the Start and Run readings. Let me know what you get.

Your friend is correct. Installing a sump or p-trap in the suction line will probably help. The oil may be leaving the compressor but can't get back.
