INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the CPS® PRO-SET® CR500 refrigerant recovery machine. Like
any CPS® product, the CR500 series machines combine the latest in product technology with
the practical “hands on” features that our customers actively request. Focusing on product
performance, recovery speed and reliability, we were able to develop the most advanced
oil-less recovery machines on the market today!
Designed to service commercial/residential refrigeration and air-conditioning systems,
the PRO-SET® CR500 is the lightest most compact refrigerant recovery machine in its class.
A convenient “QUICK START GUIDE” is permanently attached to the side of the unit and
acts as a quick and easy reference for the proper operation of the unit. Once the recovery
is complete, simply turn the center valve to the SELF-CLEARING position to automatically
remove any residual refrigerant left in the machine. The unit is now ready to recover the
next refrigerant type.
The PRO-SET® CR500 series utilizes a 1/3hp/0.75kW oil-less compressor, non-restrictive
manifold valves and a high efficiency rifle-fin condenser/evaporator combination for quick
and easy refrigerant recovery.

GENERAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
ONLY QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSONNEL SHOULD OPERATE THIS UNIT.
MOST STATES, COUNTRIES, ETC… MAY REQUIRE THE USER TO BE
LICENSED. PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR LOCAL GOVERNMENT AGENCY.
DANGER - the recovery tank contains liquid
refrigerant. Overfilling of the recovery tank may
cause a violent explosion resulting in severe
injury or even death. As a minimum use a
scale to continuously monitor the recovery
tank weight.
CAUTION - avoid breathing refrigerant vapors
and/or lubricant mist. Exposure may irritate
eyes, nose, throat, and skin. Please read the
manufacturers Material Safety Data Sheet for
further safety information on refrigerants and
lubricants.
DANGER - Avoid breathing refrigerant vapors
and lubricant vapor or mist. Breathing
high concentration levels may cause heart
arrhythmia, loss of consciousness, or even
cause suffocation.
CAUTION - to reduce the risk of fire, avoid the
use of extension cords thinner than NO. 14
awg. (1,5mm2) to prevent the overheating of
this cord please keep length to a minimum.

NOTE: If liquid refrigerant is present, a hammering sound will come from
the compressor. Use the SUCTION valve to meter or regulate the incoming
refrigerant until the hammering sound goes away. The SUCTION gauge
will read the regulated pressure to the compressor.
Monitor the suction gauge until it falls below the required vacuum level.

ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
FILTER MAINTENANCE - the CR SERIES is equipped with a 100 mesh screen
filter. This filter should be checked periodically. A partially clogged filter will
slow down the recovery rate of this unit.
Replace the filter cartridge as follows:
1. Use a 7/8” socket or boxed end wrench to loosen the suction port as shown
in Figure 1.
2. Once loose, remove the suction port- filter cartridge assembly is shown in
Figure 2.
3. Either clean the current cartridge or replace with new cartridge.
(Item NO. CRXF3)
4. Inspect O-RING. RE-LUBRICATE with compressor oil or equivalent.
5. Place filter back into suction port fitting.
6. Hand tighten this assembly back onto the CR unit.
7. Use a 7/8” socket or boxed end wrench to tighten 1/8 of a turn. DO NOT
OVER TIGHTEN, damage to the O-RING may occur.
8. Check the connection for leaks.

TROUBLE SHOOTING CHART
PROBLEM: The unit will only pull down to 0 pressure or a slight vacuum.
SOLUTION: Remove refrigerant hose from Suction port. Place a cap on this
port:
1. If the unit pulls a vacuum, then the low side leak is somewhere between the
refrigerant hose and the equipment being recovered.
2. If the unit does not pull a vacuum, then suspect an internal low side leak on the
CR unit.
PROBLEM: The unit starts for a few minutes, then shuts-off.
SOLUTION: The high pressure switch has activated. Make sure the discharge
valve is open. Make sure the recovery tank valve(s) are open. Check for any other
restrictions on the discharge port of the unit. Correct restriction. Restart the unit.
PROBLEM: The unit does not start and the thermal circuit breaker
activates.
SOLUTION: If the unit fails to start, open the suction valve and rotate the center
valve to the “SELF-CLEARING” position for 5-10 seconds. Then rotate back to the
“RECOVERY” position. Reset circuit breaker. Push the START switch.
PROBLEM: The unit recovers at a very slow pace.
HELPFUL HINTS
• If the refrigerant to be recovered is from equipment with high contamination
levels of acid, moisture, etc.… it is recommended to utilize an in-line filter drier
placed before the suction port of the CR600 unit. An Alco EKO52 or equivalent
filter drier would provide adequate protection.
• If large amount of liquid refrigerant (greater than 70lbs.) are present, it would
be recommended that Liquid Push-Pull method be performed first, then follow
by Direct liquid or vapor recovery.
• A ball valve or an anti-blow fitting should be used on the end of the discharge
hose. This will prevent unnecessary loss of recovered refrigerant. It will also
protect the user from liquid refrigerant contact. Read General Safety instructions
on refrigerant contact.
• When recovering refrigerant under low ambient temperature conditions, add
