refrigeration and a.c.
« on: July 14, 2015, 08:09:11 AM »
hello, my question isnt pertaining to a specific model. i guess would be a general question about refrigeration compared to a.c.
--What is the metering device on a refrigerator? is it a valve, piston or what. i had a hvac friend ask me this in regards to diagnosing compressor symptoms.
