The capilliary can be sized from the outside diameter, the repairman should have a guage to measure it this gives him the internal size from the outside diameter, the length only takes a tape rule, these are normally set to plus or minus 1 inch, so not too critical

Hope this helps

Dear experts. how can i flush the capilair from my refrigerator. some people are using 90% alcohol. is this ok. if it is ok how can i use this. regards. S.Mataw

Usually the capillary tube is blown through with nitrogen or a refrigerant. If you are unable to blow through the capillary tube you can always replace it. Diameter and length are critical. You can find charts through Supco and other suppliers of capillary tubes.

How long do I have to wait to plug in my vinotemp vt200 wine cooler after unplugging it

While there is no required time to wait, you will prevent compressor's clicking if you allow the cooling system internal pressure to equalize, about 10 minutes are plenty time.

Capillary tube

You can determine this by taking a numbered drill bit index and inserting the proper size diameter but end of the bit into the cap tube. You can then mic the butt end or cross reference to chart giving size of numbered drill bits. The length is also very important when sizing, cap tubes must be as close to exact length as possible. Also cap tubes must be scored with 3 corner file and broken off so as not to alter inside diameter.
Or you could use a cap tube chart. Try
Apply Freon type, compressor HP, temp range of unit, number of feeds.

You can order a replacement evaporator assembly directly from the factory at 800-223-3900. I believe (working on memory here) the part# is 42244047 (for black) and 42244046 (for white) It comes with the suction line and capillary tube already brazed to the evaporator plate and comes with a new filter drier. They can also recommend a service technician in your area if you need one, They accept all major credit cards.

Sandwich prep refrigerator too warm.

It sounds as though you have a clogged capillary tube, cannot be sure without suction and liquid line pressures and temps but if you can, ask the tech if the suction pressure seemed to be low, if so, replace the capillary tube with the proper length and diameter tube, replace the liquid line dryer and pull a GOOD vacuum on the system and recharge it, refering to the rating plate for the proper amount and type of refrigerant.

Ac capillary tubes

Sounds like you have a clogged cap tube. Yes they should both be sweating, I would expect your low side pressure to be lower though unless it is real hot in the camper. You can replace the tube but make sure what goes in is the same diameter and length because that is all engineered for proper metering into the evaporator.

If you have a blocked capillary tube that had nothing to do with a power outage. You could get this if the condenser got EXTREMELY dirty. The cap tube runs up through the wall this is true but I have run external line sets up the back wall to bypass this sort of problem. You have to know where to drill so as not to hit the old line set or the electrical wiring which is also in the wall.

If the unit was made after 2000, there is a solid state control in the back that you can test. If it was made before then, it will have capillary tube style thermsotat that you can test.
Made after 2000:
First, pull the unit out to access the back lower area and disconnect the power. Remove the lower backing to access the mechanical area. There will be 2-inch square back box with seven terminals and 4 dip switches. Disconnect the red and black wires from terminals # 3 and 2 respectively and connect them together (this bypasses the control). Plug the unit in...if it runs you need a part of or all parts of the control.

Made before 2000. With power disconnected, remove the front grill to get access to the thermostate (usually on the right side). It will have up to three wires connected to it and a sensing line. Leave the green (ground) wire as is (if connected), disconnect the other two wires and connect them together or run a jumper. Plug the unit in...if it runs then you need a new thermostat (only one part).

If the compressor does not run but the condenser fan does...something is wrong with the compressor.

You can also call the factory at 800-428-6644 and ask for technical assistance. They can assist you with further troubleshooting and/or finding a servicer near you. They should still have parts to repair that unit.
