Maytag Side-by Side Condenser
The condenser is a long folded tube which receives the hot, high pressure vapor from the compressor. While the most common problem is keeping the condenser clean from lint and dirt buildup which prevents proper airflow and the required transfer of the heat to the surroundings, it is possible that due to an unrepairable leak or a nonremovable restriction, the condenser could require replacement. As with any R134A sealed system repair, the key to success is the limiting of the time of atmospheric exposure. Do not remove the plugs on the condenser inlet and outlet tubes until the new condenser is mounted in place and made ready for brazing. The inlet side will connect to the compressor discharge line and the outlet to the yoder loop.
