Refrigeration System Test Procedures

Careful testing of the refrigeration system is essential in determining if a malfunction is present.
Temperature testing is accomplished by using a three lead thermocouple temperature tester in specific locations.
1. Test point 1, is attached to inlet on the evaporator coil
2. Test point 2, is attached to outlet on the evaporator coil.
3. Test point 3, is approximately 6–8 inches from suction port of compressor on the suction line.
4. Thermocouple tips should be attached securely to the locations specified.
5. Do not test during initial "pull down", Allow one complete "OFF" cycle or a balanced temperature condition to occur
before proceeding.
6. Unit must operate a minimum of 20 minutes after thermocouples are installed.
NOTE: It may be necessary to turn control colder to maintain required operating time.
7. Wattage reading must be recorded with temperature test to confirm proper operation.
8. Suction and Head pressures are listed in the specification chart.
