let you guys know on my noisy residential (1800 sf) compressor about a month
did nothing and the a/c is still working fine. still noisy about 70 db
Are there residential compressors that need their oil/lube checked? within
the past 10 -15 yrs?
i'll have the system checked by tech in oct.
i look forward to chatting with all of the mensa canidates, if you know what
i mean :)
peace, much love
70 isnt so bad. Ive heard louder.
If you need to oil and lube your compressor there are two "zert"
lubrication fittings on the bottom of all compressors. Sometimes you
have to unbolt the 4 bolts to tip it up enough to reach them. Make
sure you have a 90 degree grease fitting. Put about 10 pumps into the
oil bearing fitting and 6 pumps into the shaft fitting.
Pull the plug on the bottom side of the compressor to drain the oil.
Refill to just about the top of the suction fitting using 75-90w gear
oil. The thicker oil works much better than the factory 40 weight
stuff when its 95 degrees outside.
wonder if it isnt a bristol?
stormy . you always seem to be right on time with a comment that always seems
to follow the thread ,
lets see you pass that NATE exam , then i'll take you seriously ;-)
1000 bucks would go a long way towards stocking that food bank in the
mountains in utah . and might get you out of hot water with all your wives !!!
hell, maybe you could do a deeper genealogical search ,
who knows , ?????
That's an interesting comment as I was on a roof working on a cellar cooler
condensing unit and the Bristol compressor sounded a real bag of nails. My
initial 'looksee' reaction was it was not pumping -suction at 32 deg's c
seemed to confirm my suspicions.
However being the professional I am I surprised myself by fitting gauges and
it was 12 psig on 134a - it actually had a leak and was well short.
Fixed leak then filled it up and it still sounded like a bag of nails...
