    identifying this type of a/c breaking one down

    i was wandering what kind of radiator this is and how often you guys come across this type and just how old is this style? the one i got was from a window a/c not a central a/c but it looks like this



    i found that you can just unwind the ali fin and get the copper off easy at least in my opinion compared to the loop type radiators. i wish i could find more of these=)

    does anyone else break these down or just take it in as is? you cant find this on google if you type in wound radiator whats the proper name for this type? thanks for the help

    The picture is a GE/Trane unit. There is no copper in the coil, just glued on copper stubs. They are pretty common.

    That is actually condenser.copper tubes usually fins are copper or aluminum and compressor and couple valves that use Allen wrench to loosen or tighten.if compressor is good you can close high side( the small liquid line) manually trip relay and use compressor to suck refrigerant into the coils of that condenser then close high side( the big one and cut line without loosing any refrigerant.new units come charged for 25 feet(if I remember right) weld the lines pull a vacuum and leave it for a bit to test for leaks.hook up guage or get out thermometer and adjust charge.watch it when you get these that they don't have refrigerant in then.it will mess up you day if you inhale some.oh there is fan and motor that sets in middle blowing air up
