Check of a condition of a coolant of central air of air


At all do not open a refrigerator path To/in (see preventions in the Head of System of cooling, heating).

For check of a condition of a coolant To/in on a cartridge of a dehumidifier the special observation port and the humidity indicator are provided. The dehumidifier is located in the right forward corner of an impellent compartment.

Check of a vlagonasyshchennost of a coolant

Visually define color of a spot of the indicator of humidity. Dark blue color of the indicator testifies to a normal state of a coolant, red points to excessive saturation it by moisture. In the latter case the system should be emptied and recharged. Replacement of a cartridge of a dehumidifier is at the same time made.

Assessment of a consistence of a stream of a coolant


1. Start the engine and turn on the conditioner.
2. Some minutes later glance in an observation port and visually estimate a consistence of a stream of a coolant. Liquid should be absolutely transparent, otherwise it is necessary to try to determine a cause of infringement by a consistence of a stream:
   -  Equal stream of transparent liquid: The system functions regularly;
   -  Liquid is absent at all: Drive away the car for check in a specialized workshop;
   -  At a stream there are transparent bubbles evenly distributed in it: Coolant level fell. Drive away the car on car repair shop for a system recharge;
   -  Liquid замутнена bubbles of dairy color present at it: Excessive saturation of a coolant by moisture (takes place see. Check of a condition of a coolant of central air of air).

Oporozhneniye and a recharge of system should be made only by strengths of specialists of car-care center. Do not try to perform at all this work independently — the coolant belongs to the highest measure to substances hazardous to health (see. Head of System of cooling, heating).
