LG LSC 26905 TT
« on: July 22, 2012, 07:44:21 PM »
I have a LG Side By Side  LSC26905TT

Cooling issues here is what I have done

1) all fans operational.
2) compressor runs  after initial 10 mins  it draws 1.53 amp thinking this is a little much.
3) Cooling  frost only forms 6-10 inches into evaporator coil with the fridge getting to around 46 degrees  in a 78 degree house 24 hours.
4) no way to test pressure on LOW side at this time unless I add port.
5) did find questionable oil at the point of stubbed of tube of Drier tube Also drier tube mounted from factory Horizontal ???  always told need to be with the capillary tube down. 

what else am I missing unit is 4-5 years old

I could get new drier add ports and go from there  ?  Never soldered Alum and copper however found info on turbo  torch alum flux paste that can be used.   I have the gauge set and can pull a vacuum if I install new drier. No info on compressor freon capacity or required oil. only show 134A

Also should I add high side valve while i have system open.  If I open it    Is it worth the trouble or just wasting time going into sealed system ?

Love to hear some advise I am out of answers

Sound like a leak, make sure condenser coils are clean. Look for oil leaks @ joints. If you change the dryer, i would get the dye drier, so if has leak, you can find it easily.
