The AC has not worked since i bought it 10 years ago.
When charged, the part in the heater box works, but the TropicAir part is not cooling. I think it is either the solenoid or the expansion valve. Unplugging the solenoid does not cause any reaction on the gauges so something must be clogged.
The issue here is that I don't want to open up anything without replacement o-rings so I can put it back together.
Where can I get these things. They are like "square cut o-rings" but they are not square, they are rectangular in section about 0.05 thick by 0.10 inch tall.
What do people do about this? Use 2 round o-rings? reuse the old dead o-ring? reassemble with sealer? epoxy?
