    Say someone were to puncture an a-coil on a sheet metal screw, can it be brazed and repaired or is it garbage? just hypothetical of course

    which would you rather do:

    participate in a thing similar to "2 girls, 1 cup"

    OR

    eat a placenta blended into a smoothie

    I'll take the smoothie. Don't blend it too much though... I like my placenta a little chunky.

    Where is it punctured? Was the tubing crushed or bent in the process?

    From a professional standpoint, i would have it replaced. But if i was installing it myself and i was the one paying for it i would take the time to repair it. Sil-fos is great. Make sure you purge with nitrogen though, or atleast keep a full stock of TX valves

    Its got a built in orifice, no txv.. It's a small puncture right on a bend at an end..I found one on kijiji for $100 that actually fits my plenum better so i may use that instead, however its a 3.5ton coil, not that it overly matters, i think the improved surface area would be better when its time for heating anyways and i can keep my fan speed down.

    Pics?

    If you cant replace the bended area, leave it.

    You could plug it with Sil-fos while purging, but i wouldnt have it in my home. A leak would be on my concience all the time.

    Pics are fucking me around. It's a tiny pinhole, on a bend...

    Is a refrigirant leak something that can hurt us if a repair fails down the road?

    Refrigerant leaks can lead to:

    Shitty heating
    Shitty cooling
    Compressor failure
    Condensor fan failure
    More power consumption

    In other words, all kinds of bad shit. And its not like all of this would happen years down the road. It would happen within weeks. Once the system stops working at its designed operating pressures, performance is sacrificed. Then it will all go downhill once theres not enough refrigerant to lube/cool the compressor and vital parts.

    Have it fixed, or dont install it.

    Fuck, so for $100 i'm better off throwing in the new coil...whorefuckslutfaceshit


    this is all theoretical tho right:hsugh:

    I'll talk to my neighbor, he's an HVAC mecanic..I'll see what he says, but i think i'll end up throwing in a new one.. Is the core/copper worth anything at least?

    The fact that its on the bend makes it tricky to repair. If it was on a straight run, repairing the pipe and fins is easy.

    Yea you can cash in the copper. Just strip the fins.

    U bends are common to go, simply evacuate old refrigerant, repair the u bend with sil-fos, then evacuate and recharge.

    Not true my friend, they rarely give you copper 1 anyways, with the fins still on they will give you copper 2 price.

    Real common to "go" eh? You get this a lot at car quest? :lol: i kid i kid.

    If by common you mean people put sheet metal screws in it, then yea, ive seen it done more then once and almost did it myself. But mystery pinholes dont just appear in copper unless its due to a wonky brazing job from the factory.

    Ya i got my neighbor to fix it, i told matt via pm. It was brand new, so no refrigirant to evacuate, and i evacuated the nitrogen it's filled with from the factory when i punctured it lol..It's perfect, took him no time to braze it up and it's like new. He was just happy it was on an end and not in the middle of the fins.

    Im assuming the screw wasnt threaded right to the head then? Just puncture it with the tip?

    I had origionally thought it was screwed right in. Cause thats a big hole even for sil-fos to cover up.

    No there was a screw on the inside of the plenum that was holding up the exhaust pipe tie down. I pushed the acoil into the pleneum and punctured the bend on the tip of the self tapping screw, it was literally pinhole size
