    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

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.

Need freon recharge. punctures freezer coil in


You punctured the aluminum evaporator . In the many years I've been in refrigeration , I have yet to find any way to patch a hole in the evaporator . I've used epoxy , solder , and all different advertised ways to try to patch aluminum . Nothing worked ( for long anyway ) . My suggestion would be to buy another refrig . You will be wasting time and money trying to " fix " this problem . To repair it yourself , you have to have a license to buy R12 , maybe you can buy R134A without a license , you have to look on the " modell , serial number tak to see which it uses and how much to use . Also , the system has to evacuated ( all air removed from the lines ) . Do you have a vacuum pump ? You have to buy a solder on connector ( or saddle valve which WILL leak eventually unless you get a solder on valve ) which will connect to the larger tubing on the compressor or use the access line already on the compressor but is pinched off . Do you have guages for the refrigerant type you need to use ? Once you have these things , reply back and myself or someone else will help you procede .

I HAVE A HOLE IN THE REFRIG.LINE OF A HAIER MO.HC125FVS


Hi, unfortunate, sorry to hear that, but it could be repaired, you should immediately dried up water/ice around punctured area, prevent water/ moisture entering punctured area (evaporator. lines), it's one of the worst thing, that could happened to any refrigeration system, it will be costly to repaired, if water get into your evaporator lines, compressor oil have to be replaced, evaporator will need to be flush out, repair puncture, change filter drier, it's better to replace compressor, vacuum system for about 2hrs. then recharge. it's better to use welding/ soldering, to repair punctured line, epoxy repair kit can be used to repair punctured (evaporator) lines . you will have to call a mechanic, if very little water entered punctured( evaporator) lines, then flushing of evaporator, (internal cleaning of lines (tube) changing of filter drier, with overnight vacuuming will do the job. take note, job like this, cannot be guaranteed. check cost for repairs, sometimes it's better to purchase a new one, and save yourself some headaches.next time never use sharp instruments in your freezer, it happened to me sometimes, it's what you get your hands on, what's available at the moment, good luck.

Freezer not working but motor working


hi! that symptom correspond hizzing sound on evaporator.factors are to be check before you can diagnose insusfficent cooling effect check your actual opearating current using clamp ammeter,set to amperes rating,clamp to one line source take thereading,compare reading on the tag locate at the backside of freezer there is rated ampers indicated.if you got low amper rating your system is under charge,thats the time you recharge your system by qualified ref/ac technician.but if you got high amper rating your filter need to replace as well as your refrigerant.check also the high side pressure by service pressure gauge manifold or the compressor discharge pressure if can compress to 300 to 500 psig.if not your compressor has loose compression.compressor is worn out.

if you are sure that the compressor is running and there is no cooling, then you could have a leak in the system and there nothing you can do about it. you should ask a professional to repair the leak and recharge the system .

i ask if you are sure because you might think of the vibration of the condenser fan motor if there is as the vibration of the compressor. they are two different motor running at the same time.
