Re: Goodman Condensing Unit

Btw jesse, you may want to practice your brazing on some scrap copper. You're using way too much heat if you're burning the seals in the valves.

Not an insult of any kind, I'm just saying.

Re: Goodman Condensing Unit

Might want to see if the liquid line service valve has the same problem first befoe swapping out the vapor side. If it does, then do both at the same time, and save yourself some work later.

May not be your brazing. Some of those valve are real cheaply made.

Re: Goodman Condensing Unit

Maybe jumped the gun on how you braze. Don't think your the first guy to over-heat a valve or so. Just one simple tip, use a wet rag. Reason being is that wet rag helps in absorbing the heat, so, keep the valve body wrapped in a wet rag.
