Used Gs300 A/c Compressors


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

has anyone tried buying from ebay reconditioned or used compressors? most merchants are in the states,(considering purchse) one chappie is listing from Cleveland UK at present, need experiences and advise as 500 pound for a new one will break the banks,

Cheers

There are very few folk who can re con an aircon compressor to a decent standard, most give a second hand unit a lick of paint and sell it as good... If you have a second hand unit, and it is duff, then you will have to have the refrigerant recovered to remove it and send it back...

What is wrong with your old copressor? if it has failed internally and spewed its gus round the rest of the system, then you will need the system flushing out, new drier and fresh lubricant or you will be back to square one pretty quickly.. What has caused your compressor to fail? Duff expansion valve? lackof refrigerant due to a leak?

Personally I would fit a new unit but as you have found out, they can be dear.. but have had enough headachs over the years fitting second hand compressors for frieinds and then taking them off again... You pays your money and takes your choice
