Can you re-charge a compressor?
here's the problem: a goodman compressor was cut free and moved for a renovation project. it's been sitting on the lawn for about a month. the project has moved along, and it's time to move the compressor back, re-connect, and hopefully re-charge with R22.
i'm told that a compressor sitting unconnected cannot be re-used. it ...gets gook inside the compressor...
so, my question: is this true? the compressor cannot be cleaned out and re-connected/re-charged? the unit has worked perfectly before the disconnect.
the overall project is a tad above budget. replacing a whole compressor puts us more in the red.
if there is a process to prep the compressor i'd sure like to know about it.
thanks for any advice,
