Topping up the lubricating oil
Warning! Do not mix oil types. Always use the correct type of compressor oil.
Note! Too much lubrication oil will impair cooling. Too little lubrication oil will damage the compressor.
The oil must be topped up when repairing a leak or when replacing a component. The quantity required for the component in question will depend on
whether leakage has taken place slowly or quickly.
Slow leakage (longer than 24 hours)
With a slow leak, there is normally minimal risk of oil loss.
When installing new components the following procedures apply:
Rapid leakage (e.g. hose rupture)
Rapid leakage often means that lubricating oil escapes with the refrigerant.
When replacing components, the following oil volumes shall be found in the new components or shall be filled in the system through the service valve,
except for the compressor (see the "Compressor" information):
Oil return when reusing compressor:
measure the volume of the oil drained from the compressor
replace the volume of drained oil according to the table below:
