MORE ABOUT YOUR REFRIGERATOR
HOW A ROTARY REFRIGERATOR COMPRESSOR MOVES REFRIGERANT
As heat-saturated vapor enters from the refrigerator evaporator via the suction line, it smooth a chamber which is increasing in size as the rotor spins. The negative pressure created by the enlarging chamber polio the refrigerant into the chamber until the opposite blade passes the suction, at point; the refrigerant is being squeezed into an area which is decreasing size. As the leading blade passes the discharge port, this compressed vapor call sent out the discharge port. Oil is pumped through the center of the shaft which drives the rotor, thoroughly lubricating all of the components of the sealed assembly. This oil pressure of the centrifugal force from the spinning rotor (as fast as 3450 rpm). The oil also acts as an effective seal, preventing "blow-by" of the pressurized refrigerant into the low-pressure suction area.
The all-important oil is sealed into the refrigerator compressor along with the motor and pump assembly. If you should encounter a refrigerator which has been leaking oil side for any reason (moving, etc.) allow it to stand upright for at least twenty hours before starting it, to be sure that sufficient oil has returned to the refrigerator compressor. Otherwise, damage might occur to the highly polished surfaces and the refrigerator compressor would shortly fail. There, a cooling pulls loom air across the heat that allows the hot refrigerant vapor to condense into liquid. It is imperative that a free air flow be provided through the refrigerator condenser, regardless of type.
On a static refrigerator condenser, a yearly cleaning with the brush of a vacuum cleaner is sufficient. Forced-air refrigerators are much more critical. The increased air flow across the refrigerator condenser and creates a buildup of lint and dust. These should be cleaned more frequently at least every month or two. The housekeeper should make it a habit to vacuum accumulations away each time she vacuums. Follow the instructions that came with the refrigerator and be earful not to kink or bend any refrigerant tubing while cleaning.
Lint on refrigerator condensers, whether static of forced-air types, is an enemy of the system and may result in severe damage to the refrigerator compressor in extreme cases. The best preventative is a periodic schedule of refrigerator cleaning. Air blockage of a forced-air condenser can be a serious matter. If the coil becomes completely blocked, the refrigerant is unable to condense back to the liquid state. It reenters the evaporator as a warm vapor. Evaporator temperatures rise and food thaws. In severe cases the compressor may become so hot that the overload protector will cycle it off. If this continues over an extended period, insulation of the refrigerator compressor motor windings may be damaged. The result is: in expensive system repair or possibly even a compressor replacement.
