How do I add R-134a refrigerant to a Breezaire 1060?

Is there a guide available showing me how to add more refrigerant (R-134a) to a Breezaire 1060EM housed in a wine cooler/cabinet (assuming this can be done by a careful novice)? What type of special screwdriver would be required? Where do I pour? ...

I'm not familiar with your unit, but sounds like condenser problems. Check for a dirty coil on the backside or underneath the unit. Also, if it has a fan for that coil, make sure it's running when the compressor is running and that the blades are clean. Other than that, it could have developed a refrigerant leak.

Needs freon. where do i put it


Oh no. Most of these systems do not come from the factory with service ports that allow you to add R-134a. You will need to buy a clamp on piercing valve then add the refrigerant. The leak is most likely in the evaporator coil where the wine is stored, and the R-134a will leak out again soon. Replacement or repairing the leak will take care of the issue, also the weight in ounces of refrigerant should be on the data tag of the unit next to the model number. Try not to exceed the recommended charge.

This unit is 15 years old and the drain tube was never hooked up believe it or not and it leaked terribly with now a rusted out bottom. The unit works however and I was wanting to fix it. Can a new...


IF YOUR UIT IS IN FACT 15 YEARS OLD IT CAN NOT BE A WKL MODEL, WKL ARE DIGITAL UNITS, WHAT YOU HAVE IS A WK4000 WITH A SCREW TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT IN BETWEEN THE GRILLS.
A 15 YEAR OLD WK 4000 IS AN R-22 SYSTEM AND NOT WORTH REPAIRING AND IF THE METAL IS RUSTED YOU CAN NOT BUY MORE METAL BASES FOR THAT UNIT FROM THE MANUFACTURER, BREEZAIRE HAS DROPPED ALMOST ALL THE COMPONENTS FOR THE UNIT ONLY THINGS AVAILABLE ARE FANS,COILS AND THERMOSTAT.
BUY THE REPLACEMENT WKL4000 DIGITAL SAME DIMENSIONS AND COOLING CAPACITY.

Hi,
It should be R-134a, but you should check the rating plate for refrigerant type and for the proper weight of the charge...

Refrigetor doesn't freezer


small appliances use CLOSED systems because they use r-12 or 134a freon (you have to be licensed to buy and dispose of it) - once charged - they are sealed shut. You will have to make your own charging port with a tap (similar to a refrigerator water line tap. They are available at most A/C supply shops... however the taps are inconsequential if you do not have a license to purchase the refrigerant.

I have a manitowoc ice machine that was on r12 at 22oz. changed to 134a can you tell me what pressure and how many oz.


I wouldn't recommend R-134A for an existing unit conversion. The head pressure will probably be a bit high and a complete oil change will be necessary. I don't know what model you have or what the nickel plating on the plate looks like now but an R-12 machine will be pretty old. If you must convert I would use one of the interim replacements for R-12 such as R-414B also known as Hotshot, possibly R-409A, or Frig-12 that was made as a interim for the automotive a/c applications. Not knowing your availability to these various refrigerants I might also recommend checking the automotive a/c replacements to see what is available. As for amounts with such a small system and a TXV metering device I would just add 22oz as long as the head pressure doesn't get over say 175psi during freeze mode.
