York compressor failure.. Brand freaking new unit!

So, after doing everything to a Tee, brand new EVERYTHING, including a Brand Freaking NEW York compressor, not a rebuild, All new custom hoses, new evaporator, Evap switch, condenser & Dyer, this happens...



I'm almost down to the second can of R12, gauge is high, around 50PSI on the low side because I'm charging, almost 4 - 8 OZ of freon more to go to get to factory specs for the compressor and unit, then all of a sudden, BOOM!

Cover my face, fear set in, shut the motor down instantly, and there's dye ALL OVER THE BACK SIDE OF THE UNIT!

No hoses blown, nothing. So, it's either the rear seal of the compressor or the washer on the oil drain plug failed.

I AM SO PISSED OFF RIGHT NOW!!!

The York has a blow off valve in the rear. It blows when there's too much head pressure.

So, just clean the dye off and it's good?

Probably too wet on the charge could cause that?

Too much freon maybe. And don't add freon with oil. New Yorks come with oil already. Wouldn't hurt to check the oil level though.

That’s not what happened to mine...
Mine was DOA, wouldn’t build pressure and NOISY.
Metal in oil when I drained it as well.

Did you flush/check new hoses? Mine had debris in them, would have easily plugged the expansion valve had I not found. Little pieces of hose(s) from cutting/installing hose ends?

Connected everything back up and ran a test on pressure at idle.

Roughly 80+ on low side

Roughly 90+ on high side.

Compressor officially dead?
