I am looking for help in finding a place to take a refrigeration class. I am in need of a refresher course. Preferably some place in the New England / northeast. Thanks

If you can hang on a couple of weeks, the Samurai Tech Academy course in Refrigerator Troubleshooting and Repair will be open for enrollment. Here's the course curriculum: http://appliancetech...raining-course/

Looks good. I've been thinking about this for a few years. I can wait a few more weeks. Thanks

Is the course going to include any proper techniques for sealed system repair(in particular evaporator replacement) or only diagnosis?

Sealed system repair is best learned by doing. But there will some general instruction on sealed system repair. The focus of the course is on theory of operation and troubleshooting modern refrigeration systems, including inverter compressor and dual evap systems.

The way I learned it 20 years ago was read a service manual (Maytag, I think) that had general procedures. Then I got some old refrigerators and dehumidifiers from the town dump and practiced on them in my basement. I was already a good flame welder (steel) so it was just a matter of adjusting my technique for copper. Then getting used to the gizmos and gadgets-- scale, gauges, adapters, vacuum pump, vacuum meter, etc. After about three practice units I was good to go and did my first compressor replacement. All went well.
