Wine cooler too cold

The 2 @ 47 degrees may be low in refrigerant gas. Refrigerators are design to operate with an exact amount of gas. When the gas charge gets slightly low the system will operate colder for a time and when the gas charge loses a couple of ounces the system stops cooling. Another cause may be the thermostat isn't operating properly and or the temperature sensing bulb may be too close to a source of heat.

How to put freon in my p12A

This should only be performed by a trained service technician. Not only is this potentially dangerous to the untrained person, but there is also a high potential to damage the equipment further if not charged properly.

The charge is to be metered into the suction line up stream of the compressor (charge liquid only if a blended refrigerant is used).

Most self contained unites will not have pressure taps to charge yourself, the would have to be added and soldered in aftermarket.

If in fact you had pressure taps, you will need a set of refrigeration gauges. Refrigerant needs to be weighed in, usually in ounces for a small unit. Charge is critical on these types of systems, just an ounce or two off can make a very big difference. You also need to know what type of refrigerant the unit requires, this is usually found on the name plate of the unit along or near the refrigerant charge the factory put in.

Also, if the unit entirely lost its charge, it would need to be evacuated to a deep vacuum to get all of the air out of the system. Without doing this you are wasting time and money as air in a system will create very big problems.

Furthermore, you need to make sure there is enough oil in the system, and without giving a reason or amount of refrigerant lost from the unit it is hard to give you an exact plan of action.

The delfield box 18672ptb has no tags andi need to know critical charge

my chart says 32 ounces of R-404 A. Remember, cap tube systems are charged by super heat and TXV systems are charged by subcooling or full sight glass if system has receiver.

This is one time you might need gas. Your freezer needs to be 20 degrees or less for the ice maker to work.

Possible leak in the sealed system. Make sure the technician pressurizes the system with nitrogen, changes drier, evacuates to 500 microns, then weighs in the correct charge.

Need to know normal pressure for 134-a to recharge my refrigerator

Depending upon the way you charge it you could introduce air into the system. The lines need to be bleed before charging to make sure the refrigerant is in the charge lines and not air. Most folks that do not do this for a living make that mistake.

With air in a 134 system problems will abound. The only way to really charge a system is to use a vacuum pump to pull it down then charge to the correct lever in ounces as provided on the label of the refrigerant u purchase
