Repairing a Phoenix 200


Should You Fix It or Just Toss It??


Kerry from Phoenix Restoration Equipment recently visited us to explain how you can tell if you should replace or repair a Phoenix 200.

He explained all of your equipment should be checked regularly for leaks, broken hoses, broken switches, and much more.

Knowing whether or not to replace your piece of equipment or fix it is no small fete. Checking all of these functions regularly will help you know where the problem began and if it is worth fixing it or not.

The most common problem when a Phoenix 200 is not turning on is the auto refrigerant. To fix this you may have to use a leak detector or even take it to an HVAC person to check for where the leak may be.

Make sure to test the on/off switch. If it is not clicking on and off that may be the first problem. Check the power line. On this particular model the cord illuminates, letting you know the power is working. If you press the purge switch you should be hearing the pump engage letting you know that switch is working as well.

When you remove the front panel and get inside of the piece of equipment you are testing, in this case the 200, check the compressor first. If the compressor is the problem it is most likely worth fixing. If it is an evaporator or condenser in this type of older model it is not as worth it to fix because it is quite labor intensive and the parts are expensive. Once you check the compressor and find out that is fine, check your relay switch.

These are just a few tips on troubleshooting the Phoenix 200.
