The 940S is slowly returning to her former glory.
I had a win this week with the AC. Sam Hewitt checked the system for leaks and once it was determined the system held vacuum, he added gas and dye.
The compressor ran when powered directly, so we knew there was a small issue elsewhere with switching the AC on.
A bit of googling revealed there is a known fault with the 9V relay inside the control panel. The panel was surprisingly easy to remove and open, and I was presented with this.
A quick de-solder and re-flow with fresh solder and verification of a clean joint under magnification.
The AC is nice and cold and well worth the effort and time spent.
The argument to save the old girl is definitely getting stronger.
