German term or phrase:Verdampfer
Klimaanlage Verdampfer Schlauch unterm Dach war unterbrochen - these are the rather stilted words of a farmer who is complaining about a fault in the air-conditioning system of his tractor. Does anyone have any idea what he means? Can't provide any more context - sorry!
I remember when you started this project this summer. Verdampfer refers to condensation and steam (Dampf). A Verdampfer is a device for vaporizing liquids such as a jet in a carburetor. I would check the web for diagrams of air conditioning units for any type of vehicle. I'm not absolutely positive that this is an expansion valve because I don't know much about air conditioners and haven't taken the 15 minutes to research the web. If its still an open issue and you want to find it on the web but have no success, email me and I'll find the exact term.
