Vitrifrigo

Had to replace my Evaporator plate with a Virtofrigo plate. No instructions or marks on the plate.
What orientation will work or not work?
Pipe entry at the:
Top
Top side
Bottom
Bottom side
What is the reason behind the right way(s)?

Was that video clip of any use to you at all? (just wondering)

Maybe not?

Not really but thanks anyway.


An evaporator plate works by allowing liquid to transition to a gas (boil) due to change in pressure, similar process as releasing an aerosol can. The can gets cold.



If you look at an evaporator plate there are two pipes one big and one small, sometimes the small pipe is within the bigger pipe. For it to work these connections have to be uppermost.



I was trying to understand why?
