    I ended up filling the system to the correct weight and after putting the cores back i moved the service out of the way so I could put the back cover on and would you fucking believe it I could feel the adhesive in the lokring give out and the whole thing turned freely. I'm sorry but mother fucking son of a bitch! Ugh, I was able to quickly recover the refrigerant (thank god I had a recovery machine on hand). I think I can easily twist the lokring off now and I have a couple of service valves on hand right now. Which brazing rod do I use to braze the two together? 15 or 45? Only asking because I think you told me before that they sometimes they put a special copper coating at first.

  12. what type of fuel ? sounds like safety valve. or you are on propane but you need to check pressure.

    Have to check the specs for your gauge, some it's ok some it's not. If your checking your setup just pull a vacuum.
  15. I'd be very curious if you ever resolved this. I've been having the same problem for years. Have to manually defrost every few months. Pls let me know, thanks!
  16. Thanks, I have had it apart and checked it - I don't see anything functionally wrong with it and the leaf spring makes good contact when in the right position. I suspect the master board. Unfortunately, we rent and have to have the property management company go through the repair service.....

    Is it safe to pressurize the micron guage to check for leaks?

    Think there is some grease you can get that helps seal the joints. Have you leaked checked your setup by itself?

    I tried with the testo inline. Ran the pump for maybe 25 min down to 700 micron, capped off both ends at the manifold and it jumped too 1200 then went down some and now it's steadily going up 10 every 45 seconds. Most likely it's that female to female adaptor or the guage itself since I bought it used - like new from Amazon. It says warehouse inspected but I know I can't trust that. Going to go with just the manifold connected like you recommended and run it for an hour.

    Not sure about how to use the testo gauge. For this just leave it out.

    Gotcha I am going to try that out right now. One question though. If the testo goes inline and a good vacuum is pulled; when it's time to add refrigerant is it safe to let it pass through the testo? On any video that I watch with a vac guage they always have it attached to the service port of the valve core removal tool and isolate it with a ball valve when it's time to add the refrigerant.

    I need the Parts manual. Thanks.
  23. Hope you are having a good 4th of july weekend. Codes 100, 105, 304 came back after clearing errors. I have been referencing this site for my diagnostic test checks page 106. I did these checks #27- 65.7 deg f, # 28- 57.99 deg f, and #96- 58.99 deg f. I really appreciate your help. http://members.msaworld.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2016/06/31-9250.pdf

    Believe the testo micron gauge goes inline, no need for a tee. Lets see, ball valve on lowside valve to adapter then on to the testo, then your blue hose. You may just suffering from connection leaks from your equipment. I would just remove the testo and hook manifold gauges to the refrig. Use ball valves on all 3 hoses. Hook yellow hose direct to vacuum pump and pull vacuum for 15 to 45 minutes. Shut off the yellow hose ball valve then turn off vac pump. Next step will depend if your using a scale to weight in charge. Think you are using small automotive cans - you'll have to setup can on scale with your adapters for vapor. I place the vacuum pump on the yellow hose about in the middle so moving the gauge doesn't effect the reading on the scale. Turn off both hand valves on the manifold and then open ball valve on yellow hose, turn on valve at the can or tank. zero the scale after scale reading stabilizes. Once you have a good steady zero open the highside hand valve, watch the lowside gauge to see if vacuum break and start rising to zero. When lowside gauge gets near zero you can open lowside hand valve. This procedure is to check for blocked cap tube. if the scale should stop climbing before target wait is reached close highside hand valve and plug in refrig. when the compressor starts it will suck in the refrigerant. turn off lowside valve at correct weight. Then turn off tank valve, let it run for awhile (few minutes) to an idea of pressures. depending on air temp you should see lowside drop down to 15 to 25 psi and highside be 95 to 110ish. Next is to bleed the hoses - turn off ball valves on yellow and red (highside) hoses - open the highside hand valve, this will let the refrigerant in your hose be pulled into the system. Once pressure stops dropping turn off lowside ball valve and remove gauges.

    Forgot to include this. Here is the setup I have and I have a feeling that since the vaccum didn't hold on my first test with just the micron guage, it has to either be the female to female fitting or the micron guage.

    So my new gauge came and I tried to test if it would hold a vacuum by being directly connected to vac through a female to female adaptor and a ball valve but even after getting down to 50 microns or so as soon as I close the ball valve the number jumps to 1000 and climbs up very slowly. I'm not sure if this is supposed to happen or not or if I need to keep it down at the low of a reading more than 3 minutes and then close it off to keep that vacuum. Either way I decided to try and see if I can evac the system to 500 microns and keep it below 1000 once it's shut off. It took 1 hour and 28 minutes to get down to 462 microns and within 28 minutes after I closed the valve it rose up to 830. That was last night and when i checked this morning it is at 5055. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1kMyFxrMieHbw41J8QTgh2GI6-W_xckZDY3VUEbm5Koc/edit?usp=sharing So I am guessing I have a small leak but the big question is if it's in the gauge or fittings themselves or the fridge.
