  • ? 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

      would say you got lucky with your domestic

    Could you apply the correct voltage to the LP switch to test the switch and controls work correctly?
    Then trace back the wiring from the switch

    What type of expansion valve are you using?

    How does the rest of the system look? Subcooling, liquid line sight glass, filters and strainers
