Question about Fedders Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I can hear the refrigerant going through the lines.

We recently had a freon leak fixed and now we can hear the refrigerant going through the line in route to the air handler. It sounds like we have an open faucet and you can hear the wtaer running through the pipe. Any idea what causes this. I called the repair company was was told just to keep an eye on it and if it get worse, give them a call. We have had the unit for 9 years and never heard this sound before. Any help would be paareciated. Thank you.

Refrigerator not cooling at all

Sounds like it needs more gas, and checking for leaks. If you have a leak tester, you can test that yourself, but topping it up has to be carried out by an authorised technician, sorry. Call your local fridge guy. Hope this helps :)

I have had a repairman look at this refrigerator and he claims there is a slow leak. Can't a new freon line be installed?

Usually it takes too much labor to fix that line, Kitchenaid built in refrigerators have capillary tube which licks at the back by suction line tube. Refrigerator will need ti be moved out from cabinet in most cases. Tech would want to give You a warranty, so they usually would replace the whole sealed system for big money, but most likely it last 10-15 years. If They will fix one pipe, next year You might call him back, leak might be in different pipe, but it will be the same expensive (due to labor). Check my video out. A Year ago found leak at evaporator, explained to customer better to do the whole system, but he wanted only evaporator replaced since its so obvious. Now we will replace the whole system, Evap is ok, heater too, but now, capillary tube + suction line + drain pan heater loop(freon pipe). If You watch video thru till the end, you will see where heater on old evaporator touching evaporator coil in multiple bents.

Normally you would hear a hissing noise like a gas leaking. If you were smoking it would smell kinda nice before the phosgene gas killed you. Freon turns into phosgene when near a heat source.

Freezer whistles after closing door; new sound after a freon rech

yes sir,your unit is working well right now, at this stage, freezer section is already at the peak of its performance, it creates suction motion as you close the door (frzr). with this, sometimes you can hear whistling sound or most of the is only a sign that the cooling system is working the temperature goes down it happens, to see it, watch the gasket how it behaves during that moment sir.there is a suction sound.blower is also in suction motion because it diverts airflow going to ref section thus creating this behaviour on the gasket and the door as a whole, dont worry sir that is normal, or try to clean the tip of the gasket to reduce the slipping sound.

I just had freon put in my car about a month ago now its blowing out heat what is the problem i have a 2002 ford taurau. please help i cant deal with the heat

There can be only 2 reasons for it to do that either your A/C lines have a small leak in them and all of the freon has escaped or your A/C compresser has gone out if you can still here a click every once in a while when the a/c is on then the compressor is still good. But here is the thing if there is no freon in the lines your compressor wont come on either.

I have recently moved my freezer, now it isn't freezing up the light comes on and you can hear the motor working.

hi thanks for the question i assume that this is a chest freezer if it is the problem is the refrigerant has leaked out . this is what happens sometimes with chest freezers . the condenser lines are between the walls and they are made of steel , in time you get rust on those lines , jar these lines and you get a leak so if like you say you can hear the compressor running but no cooling no freon left sorry . please accept with a positive feed back thanks the appliance doc

Water is not coming out of the dispenser and there is a leakage somewhere as ice is forming at the bottom of the inside of the fridge

I know this isn't what you wanna hear but you're going to need a plumber to come out and fix that. It sounds like you're water is hooked to the freon line and your freon is hooked to your water line. If it's been hooked up for a while it's probably from when it was moved/bumped/pulled out, and the line got a kink in it and is leaking at the kink. If that's the'll have to buy an at least 12' long 3/8"or1/4"CLEAR PLASTIC hose (your local hardware store or plumber supply should carry it) either way call a plumber to install, that freon is nasty stuff (poisonous)
