 Cause Remedy
9.4.1Low refrigerant charge1. Check for adequate refrigerant charge (bubbles or misty sight glass indicates low charge). If charge is low, have system checked for leaks and recharged by a refrigeration serviceman.
9.4.2Improperly set low pressure control.2. Have refrigeration serviceman reset control or replace if defective.
9.4.3Restriction in liquid line.3. Clogged filter drier. Check for pressure or temperature drop and have drier core replaced by a refrigeration serviceman.
4. Liquid line valve or suction valve on compressor is partially closed. Open fully. 5. Liquid line valve or suction valve on compressor is partially closed. Open fully.
6. T.X. valve plugged or inoperative. Check thermal bulb and capillary tube for damage. Have repaired or replaced if defective by a refrigeration serviceman.
9.4.4Air in system.7. Have refrigeration serviceman purge the system.
9.4.4aHead pressure too low. (Water cooled)8. Adjust condenser water regulating valve to maintain 190 to 210 PSIG refrigerant head pressure. Have refrigeration serviceman repair valve or replace if defective.bubbles first appear in sight glass. Then have unit recharged until glass just clears.
9.4.4bRemote Outdoor Head Pressure9. System not operating correctly. Check fan cycling, fan speed control or flooding values.
