SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

Please read the following before servicing your refrigerator.

1. Check if electric leakage occurs in the set.

2. When servicing current applying parts, unplug prior to servicing.

3. If testing with power on, wear rubber gloves to prevent

electric shock,

4. Be sure to check regular current, voltage, and capacity.

5. Don't touch metal products in a cold freezer compartment with wet hands. It may cause frostbite or other injury.

6. Prevent water flowing to electric elements in mechanical parts,

7. When tilting the set, remove any materials on the set, especially thin plate type (ex,: glass plates or books.)

8. When servicing evaporator part, wear cotton gloves to prevent injury by sharp fins of the evaporator,

9. Do not open the sealed refrigeration system, It could cause injury or pollute the air, Leave this job to an autherized servicer with the appropriate refrigerant recovery equipment.

SERVICING PRECAUTIONS

AIR RECHARGING

IN COMPRESSOR

Test the refrigeration system by connecting it electrically before beginning the refilling operation.

This is necessary to ascertain the function of the motor-compressor and identify defects immediately. If defects have been found, empty the old system of R134a residue by breaking off the end of the extension piece at its narrow point. (Figure 1)

Use the appropriate refrigerant recovery equipment.

Replace the filter and any damaged components.

Unsolder and pull off the piece remaining inside the service tube and then attach an extension with male Hansen, and last, solder it to the same tube again. (Figure 2)

It is necessary to execute the soldering operation with valve open so that the fumes caused by oil residue can come out freely without blowholes between two tubes during heating the point to be soldered.

The extension fitted with the male Hansen is connected to the female fitting of the vacuum pump tube. (Figure 3)

Air evacuating from the system begins as soon as the pump starts. The refrigeration system must be kept under vacuum until the reading on the low-pressure gauge indicates vacuum (0 absolute, -1 atm., -760 mm Hg.)

In any case, it is advisable to keep the pump running for about 60 minutes. (Figure 4)

If a considerable leakage occurs, it will be necessary to stop the vacuum pump will be necessary and add a small quantity of Freon to the system, if vacuum should not be obtained (pressure gauge doesn't fall to 1 atmosphere,)

Start the refrigeration unit and find the leakage with a special leak4inder. When the defective soldering point is visible, repair it after opening the extension tube valve and reestablishing the normal outside pressure inside the system.

Because the melted solder is sucked into the tubes and blocks them, the pressure must be rebalanced when vacuum is in the system for soldering. As soon as the vacuum operation is over, add the quantity (in grams) of

R134a to the refrigeration system.

Remember that every system has an exact quantity of R134a with a tolerance of

+5 grams than can be added. (Figure 5)

Before performing this operation (if the vacuum pump and refilling cylinder are connected), make sure that the valve placed between the vacuum pump and refilling tube are closed to keep the Freen from adding to the system.

In addition, check the graduated scale on the cylinder for the quantity of R134a to be added; for example, if we have

750 grams of Freon in the cylinder and must add 165 grams to the group, this amount will be reached when

R134a has dropped to 585 grams, remembering that the indicator shows a lower limit of meniscus. Do this after choosing the scale corresponding to the gas pressure different scales reported as the same gas pressure indicated by the pressure gauge on the top of the column.

To make R134a flow into the system, open the valve placed at the base of the cylinder and connected to the filling tube. The amount of Freon cannot be added to the system all at once because it may cause a blocking of motor-compressor.

Therefore, proceed by adding original quantity of about 20-30 grams and close the valve immediately thereafter,

The pressure rises and the motor-compressor must start, sucking the gas and making the pressure go down again.

Regulate the valve again, maintaining the same manner until reaching the quantity of R134a established for the system being charged. When the system is running, the suction pressure must be stabilized from 0.10 to 0.4

atmosphere.

Use ONLY R134a refrigerant.

Do not substitute any other type refrigerant.

Do not mix refrigerants.

CAUSE

An empty refrigerantsystem

indicatesa leakage d R134a.This

REMEDY

Leakagemust be eliminatedby resolderingthe defective pointor substitutingthe damaged evaporator.

EXCESSIVELY

FULL

HUMIDITY IN THE

SYSTEM

This defect is indicatedby the presence of water outside the refrigerator near the motor caused by formationsof ice on the return tube.

If in the refrigerantsystema quantity of R134a is introducedwhich is greaterthan that indicated,the excessgas does not terminateits expansionin the evaporatorbut proceedsinto the return tube.

The system mustbe emptiedand subsequentlyrefilled introducingthe correctquantity of R134a.

This defect is indicated by the partial frosting of the evaporatorand by continua{defrosting cycles determined by the interruptionof the flow of gas on the evaporator.The

motor compressorkeepsrunning.

The refrigerantsystemis humid when there is a small percentageof water present, which, not completely retainedby the dehydratorfilter, enters into circulation with the

Freon®and freezes at the capillary exit in the evaporator.

The system mustbe emptiedand then refilled after eliminatingthe humidity.

Impuritiescontainedin the [email protected] or in the componentsof the refrigerationsystem before assemblyand not retainedby the filter can obstructthe capillary.

To restore the system it must be emptied,substitute the capillaryor the evaporator entirely in case the capillaryis coaxial with respectto the return tube, then refill it.

The systemdose not work and the

"OLP" intervenes interrupting deliveryto the motor-compressor.

No frost forms on the evaporator, even if the motor-compressoris apparentlyrunning regulary,

In case of short circuit, the breakdownis due to the electric winding. If blocked,there is a mechanicalfailure in the motorcompressor.

The motor,compressormust be replacedand then proceed with refilling.

In this case there is a mechanical failure in the diaphramvalveswhich remainingcontinuallyopen, do not permit the compressorto operate.

Consequenteiy,Freon®does not circulatein the system.

The motoFcomprossormust be replacedand then proceed with refilling.

In case of mechanicalfailure in the motor-compressorthere in an excessive noise when the system is functioning. In case a suspension spring is unhooked,bangingwill be heard and there will be especially strong vibrations when the system starts up and stops.

The causeof the excessivenoise is normally to be sought for in a mechanicalbreakdown,and only rarely in the unhookingof one of the suspensionsprings.
