    Hmm, no

    It a mission and a 1/2 to remove the fridge, when I give it a clean later this year I’ll take a pic.

    After cleaning they turned it on to test, apparantly the amps either dropped or were going up and down, they thought it might have been sort on gas due to a leak. So they installed a connection only to confirm it was full of gas. Amps settle while cycling on for the next four hours under test.

    Didn’t get a pic, will have to wait till the tech pulls it apart…

    He is thinking they might have used a piecing valve, think that what he called it……based on the guy in Kununurra telling me the fridge didn’t need any gas. The guy today said you cannot put a proper valve in without dumping the gas.

    Yes,this guy knows what he is on about,the Bullet Piercing Valve is for testing only,should never be left on the system.
    They love to leak.
    A quality Schroder valve needs to be soldered into the low side of the system.
    Anyway,hopefully it’s all sorted this time.

    Hmm, I’m guessing this is a pinching valve??

    Yes,thats a Bullet Piercing Valve.

    Pierces the copper pipe so the pressure can be tested,using the 1/4 flare port which is capped on the pic.
