    Great tutorial. Never had a need to learn this until now. My 25 yr old Hot Point fridge has been clunking, every time it shuts off, for a couple years now. Now the compressor is rattling inside, as if it's out of balance, or the spring is broke. (Maybe both?) Wonder how long I can milk it out? Thanks for posting.

    I just pulled one of these off of a refrigerator and dumped out what I assumed was the oil from one of the lines. Is there a substitute oil I should put back in? Do you think that was the oil that I drained? I thought it was water

    We turned one into an air compressor when I worked in an appliance shop. Took a long time to fill the tank we connected it to but we didn't use it for a high demand application. Just short bursts of air. I believe the air compressors dentists use to run their little drills.use this type of compressor.
