Textbook Problem

When checking an A/C system, the evaporator’s inlet and outlet tubes feel like they are at the same temperature. Which of these could cause this?

  1. A plugged evaporator

  • Correct charge of refrigerant in the system
  • Restricted orifice tube
  • Leaking condenser
  • To determine

    The condition when the evaporator inlet and outlet temperature readings are same.

    Explanation

    There should be considerable change in temperature in the evaporator and the difference in the temperatures between the inlet and the outlet pipes should be considerably finite.

    In this case, the inlet and the outlet pipes of the evaporator are of the same temperatures. This can happen due to restricted flow of the refrigerant from the orifice tube.

    The line should flush with water or replaced for proper working of the Air-conditioning system...
