Common causes for air conditioning component, tools & equipment failure

Common causes for air conditioning component, tools & equipment failure.

By avoiding these common errors, the relative service life of the component will reach its full potential.

Compressors:

  • System not flushed correctly
  • Flushing through compressors
  • Receiver Drier not replaced
  • Oil not correctly measured
  • Foreign material found internally
  • Dust or grit in the crank shaft seal
  • Excessive pressure failure
  • Electrical shorts through the clutch
  • External damages, corrosion, cracks, accident related etc.
  • In the case of a compressor failure the system must be flushed thoroughly and a new receiver drier fitted.

Evaporators:

  • Faulty or incorrectly installation
  • Dirty or externally blocked coils
  • Cracks caused by vibrations
  • Over pressurized from flushing or testing
  • Internal corrosions caused by foreign substances
  • Internal blockages other than faulty production
  • External damages, dents, corrosion, accident related etc.

Condensers:

  • Faulty or incorrectly installation
  • Dirty or externally blocked coils
  • Cracks caused by vibrations
  • Over pressurized from flushing or testing.
  • Internal corrosions caused by foreign substances
  • Internal blockages other than faulty production
  • External damages, dents, corrosion, accident related etc.

Receiver Driers & Accumulators:

  • Faulty or incorrectly installation
  • Flushing through driers, filters and accumulators
  • Internal corrosions caused by foreign substance
  • Internal blockages other than faulty production
  • External damages, dents, corrosion, accident related etc

Thermostatic Expansion Valves:

  • Faulty or incorrectly installation
  • Internal corrosions caused by foreign substance
  • Internal blockages other than faulty production
  • External damages, corrosion, accident related etc

Electrical Switches & Fan Motors:

  • Incorrectly installed or wrong voltage used
  • Incorrect application
  • No fuse or circuit breaker protection
  • Moisture or corrosion
  • Short outs caused by other components or faulty wiring

Air Conditioning Tools & Equipment:

  • Incorrect application
