Trane CVHA

Is your CVHA R-11 or 114, does it have heat recovery option? I have a few of these still in operation. If ya take care of them, they'll take care of you. I worked for Trane as a Tech many, many years ago and have IOM's on several of these older chillers. I've torn them down, resurected them and caressed them. They have their problems, but when they run, they run!

Low superheat will kill compressors!

We have 1, it was converted by another company from R11 to R123 a few years back. Apparently been leaking ever since, now i get the pleasure of a teardown. Done some CVHE's and a few double enders but never a sidewinder. Ive been trying to find a teardown manual with no luck if you could help me out it sure would be appreciated, Thanks

Moose,
I do not give that stuff to just anybody.

Are you a mechanic? What is your experience and where are you from?

I do have it in PDF but it does not fit in emails, too big?

If you do end up getting the contract and need some manuals let me know. I would need a full model and serial#. But can print them out and send them or PDF them to you

Overhaul manual

I am in need of a copy of the teardown manual for a Trane sidewinder R-11 chiller. Model #CVHA-032C-HA-11HF1A1AF2LDZA521. I have a copy but it is very difficult to read. I especially need torque values and tolerances. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Only one of 3 machines in the area left. Tearing down due to leaking and inefficiency.
