Does Carrier Commercial HVAC have a recommended procedure for cleaning and servicing the evaporator and condenser coils in its chiller systems, like the AquaEdge® 19DV series?
Safety First: Before starting any maintenance, ensure the chiller is powered off and all electrical sources are disconnected.
Cleaning the Evaporator and Condenser Coils:
* Appropriate PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)
* Coil cleaner or mild detergent
* Soft bristle brush or coil cleaning brush
* High-pressure water hose
* Vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment
* Fin comb or coil fin straightener
* Coil inspection mirror (optional)
1. Safety Preparations:
* Put on the necessary PPE, including gloves and eye protection.
* Ensure the chiller is completely shut down and electrical power is disconnected.
2. Access Panels: Remove any access panels or covers that block access to the coils.
3. Visual Inspection:
* Examine the coils for visible dirt, debris, or damage.
* Use a coil inspection mirror to access hard-to-reach areas if necessary.
4. Pre-Cleaning: Brush off loose debris, leaves, or dust from the coil surfaces using a soft bristle brush or a brush attachment on a vacuum cleaner.
5. Cleaning Solution: Mix a mild detergent or coil cleaner with water according to the manufacturer's instructions. Ensure it is compatible with the coil material (typically aluminum or copper).
6. Application: Apply the cleaning solution to the coils evenly. Allow it to sit for a few minutes to loosen dirt and debris.
7. Cleaning: Use a high-pressure water hose to rinse the coils from top to bottom. Be cautious not to use excessive pressure, which could damage the fins.
8. Fin Straightening: Inspect the fins for any bending or damage. Use a fin comb or coil fin straightener to gently straighten bent fins.
Secondary Cleaning: If stubborn dirt remains, you can repeat the cleaning process.
9. Drainage: Ensure that the drain pans beneath the evaporator and condenser coils are clean and free of blockages to prevent water accumulation.
10. Drying: Allow the coils to air dry completely before reassembling the access panels.
11. Reassembly: Reattach any access panels or covers that were removed.
12. Power Up: Reconnect the electrical power and start the chiller.
Perform these cleaning and servicing procedures at least annually, but more frequent cleaning may be required in dusty or polluted environments.
Keep a maintenance log to record the date and details of each cleaning session.
It's important to note that the specific procedures and cleaning solutions may vary depending on the chiller model and manufacturer recommendations. Always refer to the chiller's operation and maintenance manual for detailed instructions and follow any safety guidelines provided by Carrier Commercial HVAC for your specific system, such as the AquaEdge® 19DV series. Additionally, consider consulting a trained HVAC technician or contractor for professional maintenance and servicing if you are not familiar with chiller systems.

I have an appointment today, and somebody was supposed to come and replace the water box for the air conditioning. Nobody came or called me. They said they were going to call me when they got the part, but they never called me, and it was 5 o'clock. Is that going o be tomorrow? Because it seems like it is not going to be today.
We had a gentleman named Victor out here, he left about an hour or so, and our oven now is showing an E28 like something burned up. Our oven wasn't working, so we paid him to repair the panel, but now I'm getting an E28 warning which means something burned up inside it.
