Hi my name is ***** ***** is there any heat being generated by the condenser?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hello Ian,no there was no heat generated by the condenser.I put a bullet piercing valve to check if it was short of gas and it was negative pressure which I think is correct as it is R600a .Was thinking maybe a blockage somewhere, cheers Graham

What pressures did you have at static ie not running and 5 minutes after start up?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
At static it was -5 psi ,thinking it was short of gas I vacced it out and put in ofn ,checking for a leak not knowing this gas runs at negative pressure ,so not sure what the running pressure is

Vac it out again and then charge it to about -15hg - then leave it for a while and tell me whether its working correctly.
