Re: HVAC question
Likely no harm if all that was done was melt the ice and then the heat was removed, but too much heat can damage the coil. I can't see it hurting the refrigerant, though.
thanks, i only heated the compressor itself because the fan motor putting the thermostat on "on" melts the ice quick on the evaporator by circulating the ambient air...since where i live it is starting to be cool outside, the iced up compressor takes longer for the ice to melt... so i only applied the torch to the compressor only...and this guy knows it and he is 17 year veteran... but i think i already got my answer, thanks. now how to tell this guy he is rong with out insulting him is another story.
