Service Manual, General Electric
Refrigerators with Scotch Yoke Machines.
This is the complete manual for the 1934-42 models, otherwise known as the Scotch Yoke compressor models.
Covered are the CK (standard monitor top), DK (under sink monitor top), CG (Globe top), LK (Liftop) and CE/CF/CH/CJ (Flatop) series. The manual is still of use to CA owners as the relays, cabinets, and controls, are shared by some of the models described.
Due to file size, allow plenty of time for dial up internet connections.

There are two downloadable sections. One is the chapter specifically for General Electric. It includes detailed DR rebuilding information, CA training film excerpts which include detailed instructions on purging non condensable gases, and general specifications for 1930's models.
The other section is the introduction to the book and includes a detailed, but easy to understand description of capillary tubes.
