It might be another problem. Unless your unit was damaged there is no reason why R-134a would have leaked, of course, could be a factory defect. I had similar problem with my old Norge, now about 43 years old. It did not cool either. reason was the electric resistance heater imbedded in the evap coil was burned out. Solution was a mechanic added a pyrex glass tube with electric resistance hetaer below the coil, wired it up to the defrost timer and it has worked for the last ten years.

It should be notated on the compressor on the door and maybe inside the fridge. if my memory serves me correctly i think the clean air act states that it should contain r22. if nothing else you can call GE's support line and they can answer that question.

Good luck

Freezer has lost its suction & no longer freezing!


Depending on the age of the unit it does take a 134a freon charge or 12 or 22. when fully charged unit should cool properly. need to check door seal for suction issue. the unit does need a good charge to cool. it could also be a restricted sealed system issue.

Problem with upright freezer not freezing


It sounds like the unit is low on freon or the compressor is going bad. You have several other components that could be affecting this as well. Make sure the coils are free from dust and clean underneath. This is a bit premature for you to have problems now, especially since it is a Sears product.

My GE upright freezer does not get cold.


Sounds like the system is low on freon. The other common problem is a dirty condenser. Insure the condenser is clean, if it is. You will need to charge the system with freon. Which only a qualified refrigeration tech should do.

Need help w/the coldness of our upright


It sounds like a freon leak. This can happen when moving it. I don't recomment fixing it. You can get it charged again and it will work for a while. This will cost you about $75 - $100. You can't do this yourself as you have to be certified to buy freon. The reason I don't recomment fixing it is because when it goes out again you will lose all food. Since it is a freezer you probably don't open it every day and you might not notice that anything is wrong. Try to lay a guilt trip on the seller and see if they will take it back.

GE upright freezer


If this is a frost free model the fan could be bad. If not frost free it is probably low on freon. I don't recomment fixing this as you can never really trust the freezer again. Most of the time the leak can't be found and adding freon is only a temp solution.
