Lately Carriers been having problems with the txv kit.

Customer Question

lately Carriers been having problems with the txv kit. We've replaced 3 and found out their suppose to give us freoll ice, which is their brand of re-new. Any ways I know it's Copeland compressor it has a rust inhibitor that's causing gunk to build
up on the expansion valve. We've exercised the valve, put the freoll ice in it and still no luck. So my question is is carrier not required to reinburst for the labor of replacing the kits as well as furnishing the freoll ice? And why did it not fix the problem
after we injected it into the line set? We basically had to swap the coil to a piston coil to solve the problem
