This unit has a new compresser, cap tube and a clean condenser. Uses
R134A, won't go below 45 degrees. It has a weighed in charge and the
temp control is fine. Suction line is cool not cold. Any ideas?

Hi side about 150 low side about 15. Cap tube system, can't get at it
to check super heat. Thinking about converting it to a txv system but
with a 1/4 hp compresser i would never find a small enough valve.
Salad unit sounds like you want 35F or so, to keep the salads cold but not
frosty. With those pressures, it sounds like it's not metering enough
refrigerant. I'm wondering if the cap tube is too small, or too long.
Are you converting what was formerly a R-12 system? 134A needs a larger cap
tube ID, as 134A doesn't carry as much heat. Maybe try a R-12 replacement
blend like 409A, which runs in R-12 systems.
Low side 15 sounds a bit low, as though the system was starving.

Not sure what happened to CB...I have been looking for his posts. I
will say that he went out of his way to help me out. I was stationed
in Korea and had a new unit installed in Va. He sent me several emails
and answered questions for me and really helped. I would like to hear
from him again just so I can offer him my thanks.
