you can probably get away with that just make sure you have an expansion valve on the evaporator. An expansion valve will keep liquid from getting back to the compressor.
It is attached to the back wall of evaporator. You have to remove the glove compartment, blower unit and evaporator to get access to the expansion valve.
That would depend on where in the system the valve is. In many instances you can pump down the unit so all of the refrigerant is in the condenser and change a valve that is on the low side of the system or indoors.
The AC condenser unit is located right in front of the radiator.
Change the indoor filter, wipe the indoor unit down, and spray off the condenser
its an expansion valve and it is located in the black box ( in the rear unit)
The most important is the compressor, but the compressor alone can not cool down the chiller so next in line is the condenser after that is some kind of liquid flow control, that can be a capillary tube or a expansion valve then the evaporator where the real cooling happen then there is the thermostat that control te temperature
The expansion valve is found inside the evaporator housing. To replace the AC system needs to be flushed legally. Then valve is only held down by a few mounting screws. Once the AC system is bled, loosen the screws and replace the unit.
No, it's best to buy a new factory unit but when your compressor goes bad you will also need to change the dryer,expansion valve and outside condenser unit as well, because of debris from the compressor. Some mechanics will try and flush the system or use air to blow out the debris but in the end the customer will be back with the same trouble again. It is possible to buy used compressor and o/s condenser but always buy new expansion valve and dryer and save a little money you just don't get a warranty.I have done this for over thirty years but I could be wrong, so do the job right and stay cool all summer.
depends on the tonage and make of the unit. estimated any where from 1,500 to 4,000 dollars..
follow the high side line from your compressor, it should be just after your condensor, or it could be an expansion valve system if it's been updated, the expansion valve would look like a square block.
You will have a bad rear expansion valve located in the rear a/c unit.........
The purge unit is located at the condenser.
The high pressure side.
The expansion valve, will be in the AC unit on the Passenger side of your truck, right behind the glove box. First remove the glove box, and the the screws on the perimeter of the ac box as well as in front, it should open up, and it will be at the top right front of the box.
I believe the rear Expansion Valve may need replaced. If it has failed the rear evaporator will not cool as the freon will not flow. These Tahoes have an orfice up front and an expansion valve in the rear (inside the rear HVAC unit under the passenger quarter trim). The coolant lines and the A/C lines have to be undone to remove the HVAC system from the vehicle to replace the Expansion Valve. It's about 650 at the dealer (or you can get the valve for under 100 from an auto parts store if you think you can do the job yourself).
The condenser is on the high pressure (discharge) side of the system.
My guess is you probably have a Heat Pump Condenser. If you are running in air conditioning you need to make sure that the reversing valve is energized.
Just about everything: The compressor, the condensor, the evaporator, the expansion valve or capillary tubes, all of the piping, the reversing valve if it is a heat pump, the valves, the service ports, the filter/drier if there is one. Refrigeration service techs have a special 'sniffer' used to find the source of a leak.
Hook up common and yellow from inside unit to condenser
petrapkg unit condnserfan motor
That is a 9 seer condenser
Yes. The condenser is on the high side, and high pressure vapor goes from the compressor outlet directly to the condenser inlet.
