Question about AmcorAire UCHW-H24AF2 Split System Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Need to add Freon cannot connect manifold high or low side.

Have new unit, need to add Freon because lines are 25 feet long. Problem is gauge manifold will not connect to High and Low side. Is there an adaptor to accomplish this opportunity?

    Amcor AmcorAire UCHW-H24AF2 Split... It uses R410A.



    Question? If the Gages set was normally used for R22, would the threaded connections on the hoses fit the threads on the service ports of the compressor? If not is there an adapter available to make these connections?



    Thank you for your help.

    You have to use 410A gages. Different pressures

  • Ken Bledsoe May 11, 2010

    How do you know you need to add Freon? New unit's come fully charged. Unless you got the new freon. R410A in that case they only come charged to 15' of line set.

    On the Condensing unit the high and low side are the normal size. What brand is it that you are working with?

Yes there is an adapter to reduce to fit 410a hoses, go to a HVAC supply company they have them

When i turn on the a/c,the compressor does not work


CHECK REFRIGERANT CHARGE. USING A MANIFOLD GAUGE SET. HOOK MANIFOLD GAUGE SET TO LOW PRESSURE PORT AND HIGH PRESSURE SIDE PORT. LOW SIDE PRESSURE SIDE SHOULD HAVE 25 - 36 PSI AND HIGH PRESSURE SIDE SHOULD BE 178 - 237 PSI. IF LOW SIDE PRESSURE SIDE READ BELOW 20 PSI THE LOW PRESSURE SWITCH WILL NOT TURN ON THE AC COMPRESSOR CLUTCH NEED TO ADD LITTLE MORE REFRIGERANT. IF REFRIGERANT LEVEL CORRECT CHECK AC COMPRESSOR FUSE AND RELAY.IF POWER GOING TO AC COMPRESSOR CLUTCH YOUR COMPRESSOR CLUTCH HAS OPEN WINDING. AC COMPRESSOR CLUTCH NEED REPLACING.

Add freon to 2003 audi A8...any special tools needed? I have gauge and equipment but system will not take freon on the high side.


NEVER attempt to add freon on the HIGH side...This is very dangerous and can result in injury and damge to the system! The correct set of AC manifold gauges are needed to monitor pressures and determine the overall condition of the system...Refrigerants should be added by trained refrigeration technicians.

Need to add 'freon' to my samsung window unit.


Hello, in order to add freon to a window unit you must add a piercing valve to then low side of the system. The valve mounts to the suction line and allows you to connect your gauges and add freon. Here is a link to where you can purchase piering valves. http://www.hvacr-tools.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=HVACR&Product_Code=BPV31&Category_Code=VALVES

How do i hook my manifold gauges to my residental condensing unit to check pressures


The AC manifold gauges set have the three chambers: the low pressure chamber (left side), utility chamber (middle), and the high pressure chamber (right side).

When technicians connect the HVAC manifold gauge to the air conditioner units, he connects the low pressure side of air conditioner unit to low pressure gauge side.

If he wants to read the pressure in discharge line he connects the high pressure gauge hose to the air conditioner high pressure side.

The utility port (the middle chamber) is a place you connect the hose to vacuum pump, recovery units or add or remove refrigerant from AC units.

Air conditioning gauges is used to measure air conditioner units pressure within closed-system to evaluate or troubleshoot the AC units. Gauges manifold set is the most frequently used item when it comes to refrigerant or pressure.

Air conditioning gauge set allows the HVAC technician to check AC units operating pressures, transfer AC refrigerant, pressure test system, purge the system with nitrogen, and perform other necessary tasks.

The gauges manifold set includes the hoses, the manifold, the valves, the compound gauge (low pressure gauges) and high pressure gauge.

Compressor shutting down


FC IS FREON CHARGE, WHAT YOU ARE GETTING IS A HIGH PRESURE CUT OFF  FAILURE. THE LABEL PRESURE IS TEST PRESURE. THE RUN PRESURE ON LOW SIDE IN AC MODE IS ABOUT 65 AT 75 T0 80 DEGREES INSIDE AND ABOUT 200-300 HIGH SIDE AT 75 -85 OUTSIDE TEMP. IN HEAT THE LARGE COPPER LINE BECOMES HIGH SIDE HOT WHEN YOU FEEL IT. IF YOUR FREON IS LOW WILL WILL ALSO GET SHUTDOWN. YOU WILL NEED SET OF FREON GAGES AND CONTACT ME BACK

How do i add the air coolant into my 1993 Ford


Hello,

You'll need a kit, available at Wal-Mart/Auto Zone/similar. The kit will contain a method of attaching a can of freon to a valve, a hose and gauge, a connection that puts the freon into your system. The freon goes into the Low pressure port, which is the larger line at your compressor, and the cap should have the letter "L" on the top of it. NEVER add freon to the high pressure port. It is on the smaller line and will have the letter "H" on the port cap.
When you take the low pressure cap off, there is a schrader valve (bicycle tube valve) under it. You'll connect a can of 134a to the manifold/valve in the kit, and fit the hose onto the low pressure valve. You screw the valve on the manifold all the way in to puncture the seal of the can, and then slowly open the valve to dispense the freon. Nothing to it. Now start your vehicle with the windows down, and the A/C set on high, with the fresh air option set to fresh (not on recirculate).
Get the type of kit that has the gauge built into it, so you do not wind up overfilling the system. Dispense the freon with the can valve up, so you don't put liquid freon into your compressor.
Then, watch the gauge until it gets in range. Close the valve on the can, shut your vehicle off. Remove the hose quickly to avoid freon loss. Replace the valve cap. Chill!
Your kit will come with instructions. Read them. Most kits do not come with freon. Buy two cans, three is better. You don't want to run out of refrigerant in the middle of charging the system and have to go get more.
You should have no trouble putting freon in your system. Just be mindful where you place your hands and equipment,and you'll do fine.

Best regards, --W/D--

To diagnose problems, an A/C manifold gauge set is needed to read high and low side pressure readings. Avoid adding refrigerant with a simple charging kit like the ones sold at parts stores. Don’t add any stop leak, this can cause problems in the compressor, expansion valve or condenser.
Keep in mind that using an A/C gauge set and seeing BOTH high and low side readings can help in diagnosing the problem when you know what to look for. First, on a 134A system the high and low side service ports are different sizes. AC gauge sets have color coded hoses, the blue color coded hose has a connection that fits on the low side service port and the red hose has a connection that will only fit onto the high side. The yellow hose won’t hook up to anything if just checking the readings; it can be used to connect to a vacuum pump or attached to a refrigerant can or tank.

Normal readings on high and low side with AC OFF (static pressure) - Depends on outside temperature, but normally is between 80-105 PSI
Normal low side reading with AC on high speed and MAX & engine at 800-1000 RPM’s - Ranges from 25-35 PSI - Note that on many Chrysler products a normal reading on the low side may be 15-25 PSI
Normal high side reading ranges from 200-350 PSI

Don’t assume that if adding little Freon is good that adding a lot is better!  Overcharging just a little can decrease the performance of the system and possibly damage the compressor.

Both low and high side readings are lower than normal, this indicates a cars AC system is low on refrigerant and is under-charged.
If both low and high side readings are too high, this indicates an overcharged system - too much refrigerant. This also can indicate that the condenser fan is not working, is too slow or the car is overheating and heat is transferring from the radiator to the condenser.

Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted be glad to answer any question you may have. And yes the A/C system on your car uses R143a and there is a A/C pressure switch along the low pressure line or on the accumulator, it looks like a oil pressure sensor with a two wire lead cliped on it.

Where do i put freon in on a 2005 focus


Your focus should not take freon. Freon is used in older cars from 1995 on back. Your focus should take R134 and the plug for your AC should be located under the passenger side wheel well (yes ford makes things so convenient). Just unscrew the little plastic crews in you wheel well and attach the gauge and can of R134 (should take a little more than 2 large cans).
