    the above is true. except that its the kyoto protocal. You do need to find someone that has a licensed tech to properly evac and recharge the unit for you.

    Sorry mate but to do that you are going to need refrigerant (freon) and only people that have a refrigeration license can buy refrigerant according to the kioto protocol.

    I think you are going to have to call a licensed refrigeration tech

    If you had a licence I would be able to talk you through it but you are still going to need the freon

Your unit takes R-134A you can buy that anywhere it is 0 depletion on Ozone. The hard part is getting access to your lines if you have a service tap installed piece of cake. They make a saddle valve you can install to access line set. Pull a vacuum on unit takes a vacuum pump and about one hour of running the vacuum. Just put one line tap on the line and be sure it goes on the low pressure line not the high pressure side. The unit the fridge only takes about 5 ounces of refrigerant and has to be weighed in. Also has to be put in as a liquid as this is a blend of refrigerants. As long as you have gauges and pump and a scale I can walk you through it step by step get back with me and we can do that. ken

We recharged the freon in my 1999 Intrepid but when ac is on there is a weird noise and now the defroster makes the same noise. Is my compressor going out?


Weird as it sounds, the AC is on while the defroster is operating. You mention recharging the freon, but did you also evacuate and reinstall the working fluid? A certain amount of lubricant is supposed to be in the lines. Without it, yes, your compressor is at risk.

It may be too late, but you can try getting it professionally evac/filled and see if that helps. Also if you remove the belt and energize the clutch, you can spin the compressor by hand and listen for dragging sounds. Good luck!

How can the gas be refilled in the freezer unit


I can explain how to do it but you will need a F-Gas certified professional refrigeration technician to do this job.

If you unscrew the 4 screws to the compressor closet, you will see a copper stump on the side of the compressor, that stump used to have an access valve that allows refrigerant to be measured into the refrigeration system. For gas to be reapplied a technician will have to re-braze a valve onto that stump in order to recharge refrigerant into the system.

How do you change ac compressor on a 2000 nissan sentra


hook the high and low sides of the ac to a evac/recharge machine at a repair shop and evacuate the freon. apply a vacuum to the lines. measure how much oil comes out. disconnect the two aluminum lines from the ac pump, remove the serpentine belt, remove the (probably) 4 small long bolts. remove and install new part. reattach lines. do NOT overtighten lines. recharge ac refrigerant to specified ammount. if the pump is new you will have to measure how much oil comes out of it and put in that much oil in the new pump or it will burn up. if you dont have a evac/recharge machine they cost around 3000 dollars.

Freezer compressor runs loud and rough


Not if the repair was done correctly. The oil was probablly lost with the refrigerant and it sounds like it (the oil) wasn't replaced.

2006 nissan pathfinder a/c high pressure readings hitting 350 psi after a few minutes,already evac and recharged with exact amount of refrigerant?


ther is a blockage in the lines somehwere. usual suspect is the a/c orifice tube which is like a mini inline filter. Similar to the orifice in function would be a thermal expansion valve. both have small ports(orifice tube is a mini screen) that can become clogged with metal filings from the compressor as it wears and /or the dessicant material comming loose from the dryer bottle. if there is indeed blockage, the a/c lines will need to be flushed, dryer bottle replaced(recommended), a/c compressor replaced, and the orifice tube or expansion valve( whichever is on the vehicle) to be replaced. vaccumed to 28 inches of mercury and the recharged to proper charge.

Air leak


You can replace the section of line but you should really have the dealer or a third party A/C shop do it for you as they can evap the lines (there must be a vacum) and then add the R134a with some oil etc. Expect it to cost ~250$ or more.
