    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

Compressor keeps turning off and on. Stays on for about a minute. Cycles off. Then stays off. Does recycle after a few minutes. How do I add coolant and where.


It is normal for the compressor to cycle - when a certain pressure is reached in the system, a pressure switch disengages the compressor clutch, and then activates it again when then the pressure drops below a certain point. Unless your air temperature doesn't stay relatively constant, there is no need to do anything. If it doesn't, the system may need recharging and that should only be done at a certified repair shop.

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.

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.
