CAUTION:lf you are using an extremely
efficient vacurlmpump, just crack its suction valve for the f irst minute - then slowly
open it. This will prevent the systemoil
from foaming and being drawn into the
pump in large volume.lf this should happen, the system oil, containing trapped
refrigerant,will contaminateyour pump,
and, of course,reducethe amountof oil in
the compressor.
