In Topic: Refrigerant Recovery Machine. Which one?

06 October 2014 - 02:39 AM

I'm referring to an inline filter drier on the input side to the G5. Refrigerant can act like a solvent and will collect dirt and debris while pumping out a system, which could take out the G5's (or any recovery machine) compressor. I use an inlet screen too.

Not a huge concern with indoor home appliances. Just double protection for a very expensive investment. This is the most expensive tool in the arsenal.

roofnron, did you order the motherboard through Appliance Parts Pro as stated above? If so, you can return it and get a refund. They have the 365 day no-questions-asked return policy. And you did systematically troubleshoot it down to a sealed system issue.

Did you closely inspect main pcb for obvious fried components? Either way it is now prime suspect due to the power company induced surges. Always protect your appliances with surge protecors if it has a pcb in it. I would say your neighbors are experiecing the same fall-out.

See page 47 (lower right corner) of manual for light explanation.

Did you ohm out the the PO and CO compressor contacts to ground as vee8power stated above? You should read infinite resistance on the meter.

And you did verify you ordered the correct inverter (A or E) depending on the flavor of your particular compressor?

By process of elimination (swapping inverter, checking amp draws and voltage/resistance checks), you have logically narrowed it down to the main pcb. I would be hesitant to call it a sealed system problem at this time, but the next step would be to replace the main pcb to rule that out.

You can order the main pcb EBR67348003 thru this site, which is a direct link to Appliance Parts Pros, but they have a 5-6 day lead time.

G5 Twin owner here. It is a tank. But overkill for home appliances. The Appion G1 Single is better suited for a frig, freezer, wine cooler, etc. And about $200 cheaper.

Always use a filter dryer with it.

By pushing the test button 3 times, you put frig into defrost mode. That's why everything shut off.

Did you let system run for at least 10 minutes after powering on? What exactly is the blinking light sequence? The light going off after power on is normal operation.

By what you are describing, the compressor is on and running (drawing amps) and your resistance is right on at 6.5ohms. It may be an inefficient compressor.

80 - 180 vac is normal inverter output to compressor PO and CO only.

Did you check the capacitor at CN203 pins 1 & 5 for 10uf? Check cap with connector removed from inverter.
