In the new Mobile A/C System Temperature Testing class, attendees will learn how to use temperature readings taken at various locations throughout an A/C system, to pinpoint problems. This in-depth program was developed by placing "bugs" in systems (both orifice tube and expansion valve) that simulate often-encountered real world situations. All "normal/good" and "abnormal/bugged" conditions were photographically documented. The "results" of the bugs, when matched up with the temperature readings taken, show how things like under/over charge, internal restrictions, blocked cabin air filters and condensers, and other improper conditions, affect A/C system performance and operation.
Armed with the knowledge from this program, when confronted with similar circumstances in the field, technicians will have a good understanding concerning how to proceed with authoritative diagnosis and effective repair.
The 2011 Mobile A/C Update Clinic is an annual collection of the newest cutting edge service and repair information available to the working technician.
