The backpressure or suction pressure varies with the load and the ambient temoerature of the unit. best way to make sure that your charge is correct is to pull refrigerant out and evacuate aand weight in new refrigerant with a scaloe.

Our Amana Refridgerator's (this model), stopped cooling this weekend. Had a repair guy come by and he told us the compressor is shot and somthing about the factory seal for the freon had apparently given...


No you have to be cfc certified to replace the compressor. The freon used is either R-12 or R-134a common automotive grade 134a freon will not work properly in a refrigerator. You also need to replace the filter dryer sometimes it requires special solder. You will also need torches oxygen cetylene mix or map gas. Then you will need to check for leaks, pull a vacuum on the system making sure you get all the air out of the system because if their is to much air in lines unit will not cool. Then you will need special gauges to measure the amount of freon that goes inside the refrigerator. If something happens and you dont know how to properly read the gauges something could happen that would be even a greater out of pocket exspence to repair the refrigerator. Their is also the risk of damaging the wires or plastic water lines. My advice is to call around to some other companies to check on getting price of compressor replaced and installed. That will let you know if it is practical versus buying a new fridge or trying to purchase a used unit. Not a practical do it yourself project usually takes 1-3 hours to replace and get back going.

How do I install compressor for amana refrigerator. Can a home handy man install a compressor? Do I need freon?


Hi.The compressor motor is connected to the refrigerant system, which is not user serviceable. It will be necessary to have the compressor serviced, or replaced by a qualified technician. During this process, the pressurized system will need to be re pressurized. This will require special tools, and regulative equipment, as well. This can be very dangerous, and that is why I prefer to give proper advise on this type of repair. Kindly, contact your nearest service tech.
