After searching, it seems that you aren't the only one looking for this manual. You can probably buy it from Robinair for a pretty penny or just keep searching the internet.

I do have one but don't know how to get it there as I really don't want my email address floating around no offense but i don't know your system or how well it's maintained.

It would be great if you could send me a PDF to my E-mail address, [email protected] I am volunteering with Friendships (www.friendships.org) Sailing with relief supplys
to Haiti. The equipment is serviceable and I am going to convert for R-134A.

RE: The equipment is serviceable and I am going to convert for R-134A.


Please POST any info you have in this thread -

( Don't be a stranger and drop off the face of the planet as the thread creator did in the below thread (EG: NO updates, nor info on if he was able to successfully convert his 17400>R-134:, Nor info on long term effects= EG: System failure at later date /recovery machine /and or Car(s) A/C system(s) due to residual R-12 oil in 17400 reacting with PAG oil of car(s) freon was put into to.)


Robinair 17400 Recovery/Recycle R134 Conv.


PS: Link to manual /info on differences in the R-12 to R-134 versions in above thread. Please feel free to add any info you may run across.


One question I have is on "contaminated units" the average repair cost to the recovery machine being $300... I'm assuming for $300 replacing the dryer, and flushing the system would be the extent of the repair....
(As the cost of the accumulator, oil separator is over $300 for each...)

I'm wondering exactly what is the procedure to flush out a recovery machine which has been "contaminated".



Q: Anyone have any SERVICE INFO on 17400, 17400A / 344000 series recovery machines?. From my research the major components are the SAME:

As sold:
Robinair
17400 =R-12 only
17400A=R-12 only
34400 = R134 only

17400A & 34400 are "sister" units. (Have same major internals)
RA17434=Compressor
RA18760=Accumulator Oil Separator
RA19067=Return Oil Separator


17400 has the SAME major internals as the 17400A (R-12), and 34400(R-134)..., all except the RA19067=Return Oil Separator that is. The 17400 return oil separator part number is RA17422, listed as "Return Oil Separator Valve"?(lol), pg 7 owners manual, Pg8 lists it as "Compressor Oil Separator.

17400 =
RA17434=Compressor
RA18760=Accumulator Oil Separator
RA17422 Robinair Compressor Return Oil Separator


I'm thinking the different part number (RA17422 vs RA19067) is due to piping differences, 17400 having manual Air purge, 17400A & 34400 being automated /electrically controlled.
