    oil and freon leak - Carlyle Compressor

    90 lbs of r-22 freon leaked from a capilary tube that broke by oil pump.
    an oil pressure control blew out

    the oil pressure control was bypassed

    curious to know why this might have happened

    its a Carlyle 06E series compressor

    vibration

    probably due to excessive vibation or cap tube wearing on other components,  Someone jumpered switch probably due to refrig. floodback or excessive high refrig temps which can entrain oil out of compressor.  could be alot of problems, ( poor air fow at ahu ? )
