  • ? about hydrocarbon gas

    i am thinking about starting to learning a bit about hydrocarbon gases to save money. can any one tell me what the difference between r290a and lpg is . can any one tell me why u cant just use pure lpg in a fridge all u would need is a pt chart for it. does lpg have more moister in it
    because from what i can work out it seems to work fine we tried it in a domestic fridge and ran fine for 4 years

      R290 is a CLEAN refrigerant

      lpg ect is dirty, moisture and non condensables and foreign bodies

      also regrigerant grade hydrocarbons are stenchless/no smell

      as the stenching agent is absorbed by drier cores

      would say you got lucky with your domestic

    If all components are in good state and all setting parameters are in correct position as you said and also you are sure about the functionality of solenoids

    Check that the capillary tube (expansion) is away from any heat source or touching anything hot. The capillary tube must be full of liquid refrigerant

    Sounds like an evap issue as others have stated, although as Cad suggests pull the charge, i presume you've not been adding oil to it?

    no codes at all, screen shows 00! I believe this is because the pretrip individually tests evaps one at a time so if zone 2 is in null and it is testing
