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


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

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

Check влагонасыщенности a coolant

Visually define colour of a stain of the indicator of humidity. Dark blue colour of the indicator testifies to a coolant normal state, red specifies in excessive saturation by its moisture. In the latter case the system should be emptied and recharged. Replacement of a cartridge of a dehumidifier is simultaneously made.

Estimation of a consistence of a stream of a coolant


1. Start the engine and include the conditioner.
2. After some minutes glance in an observation port and visually estimate a consistence of a stream of a coolant. The liquid should be absolutely transparent, otherwise it is necessary to try to define a cause of infringement on a stream condition:
   -   Equal stream of a transparent liquid: the System functions regularly;
   -    The liquid is absent at all: Drive away the car for check in a specialised workshop;
   -    At a stream there are transparent bubbles in regular intervals distributed in it: coolant level Has fallen. Drive away the car on a car repair shop for a system recharge;
   -    Liquid замутнена bubbles of dairy colour present at it: excessive saturation of a coolant by a moisture Takes place.

Опорожнение and a system recharge should be made only by forces of experts of car-care centre. Do not try to perform at all this work independently, — the coolant concerns the higher measure to hazardous to health substances (see the Head of System of cooling, heating).
