* Measuring the compressor oil level with a dipstick, provides a rough measure of the quantity of oil in the compressor only.
NOTE: Compressor oil level is a reference value only, used to determine the total system oil level. Refer to GROUP 16 - AIR CONDITIONING BASIC THEORY, SYSTEM DIAGNOSIS AND SERVICE Manual in the Master Service Manual to determine the correct oil quantities required when servicing the system.
** This level equals approximately 12 oz. (355 cc) of oil: the amount present in the compressor during normal operation. Another 4 oz. (118 cc) of additional oil is distributed throughout the system when the system is operating with the full 16 oz. (473 cc) system capacity.
*** Normally open or closed means the state of the device not being installed. The operating condition may or may not be the same. Normally open in a switch is opposite that in a valve. In a switch, the contacts are open and no current is conducted. In a valve, the poppet is open and air flows from the inlet port to the outlet port.
