Use Freeze12 located at your local NAPA store and use a adjustable line tap valve. Fill on the suction side usually the one that looks like a stub, and fill wit the recomended oz.s.

DO NOT PUT 134 IN IT. If it was an original R-12 system, 134 will not work. Most all domestic refrigeration systems are sealed and have no service ports for attaching hoses for service and charging purposes. You need to find the I.D. tag. It should have all the specs on it, including how much refrigerant goes into the system. You may be able to get R-12 from an auto parts place. I've heard rumor that automotive R-12 is of lesser quality than refrigeration grade but I've found no proof. Just rumor.

Good Luck

Frigidare chest freezer model cf-8h-L compressor is running but not getting cold on the inside

Recycle it. It is on R12 which we haven't used for 20 years. If the compressor has gone, or if you have lost all the gas, it is beyond economic repair.

How to disable deep freeze? plz give me solution.

If there are two compressors on your unit, disconnect the freezer compressor. If only one compressor, nothing can be done as the fridge and freezer piping are in series. Assuming you have an upright fridge.

Freezer froze on top thawing on bottom

Dispose of the unit and buy a new one. If it leaked the refrigerant out you have to fix the leak before charging it again. The chances of finding the leak are slim.

Food thawing in freezer

You may have a small leak in the evaporator. You could try to get a replacement freon with stop leak from the automotive store and give it a shot. If it is a R12 unit then it is too old to repair. But it is worth the gamble to shoot it with freeze 12 or an equivilent before you condemn it.
