Default Add vacuum pumps to the list of r290 hazards

Just had a vacuum pump blow up in front of me. Iím guessing it was from r290 bubbles in the oil. Not sure how bad it is because I refuse to look down but thereís a lot of blood and the wife wonít tell me and is in panic mode rushing me to the ER. Stay safe folks

If Bob lived through the episode, I hope he took all the appliance junk to the scrap yard.
