What is my operating psi suppose to be on my low side?

On an R134a system the low side should be down around 0-2 PSI when the freezer is down close to zero. Running slightly in a vacuum is ok at zero degrees.

What is the gas pressure on both compressors on subzero 321

The pressure of the refrigerant in the systems vary depending on the temperature of the refrigerant gas and the type of gas used. So this is a question that can't be answered without a lot of additional information.

How many gas pressure need in whirlpool refrigerator 220 ltr model

You are asking a very vague question. I will attempt to help you but I will have to assume a few things. Like: This is a residential frig, that uses R134a refrigerant, and the compressor is no larger that 1/4 H.P.
In this case what you are looking for is ABOUT 3 to 7 PSI on the LOW side or the suction side. High side could be 160 to 210 depending on many factors. Be careful!

I replaced the compressor on my refrigerator. There were no tags as to how much freon the system takes. So I added enough to bring the low side to 72 psi w/ a cabinet temp of 70 degrees. The high side...

**** boy. 72 psi on the low side? It ain't an air conditioner. The low side should be never over 5 PSI. The whole system holds only arounf 4 ounces. What were ya thankin? LOL WOW you will be lucky if the reed valves ain't blown in the new compressor. Go ahead and evacuate the system. Pull that ****** down to as close to negative 30 as you can and then shut her down. Just crack open the freon a hair and let it SLOWL:Y build to no more than 5PSI on the low side.

Need replacement R12 refer and freezer compressors. OEM Americold compressors no longer available. URS 48 DT model should also work. Thank you.

You can use R134a compressors with the Poly oil in them and use R12 or R134a (flush the remaining old mineral oil out of the system first). Match your BTU requirements.

(Frigidair refrigerator R134a system) 3 months after a new compressor was installed it stopped cooling, it leaked. I found and repaired the leak. Then bought some automotive R134a it had dye,conditioner,...

The stop leak probably stopped up your cap tube system and the filter drier.You can try by replacing the filter drier, vacuum the system to 500 microns and recharge.The automotive 134a is the same as any other 134a.

Compressor starts/stops alot. Compressor is hot coils are cool

Have you checked the power and the amps going to the compressor? Your compressor is getting hot and then it is freezing up and trying to going into cycle but the piston over heats and the relay cuts out the compressor, that is why when you let it cool down it works ok. You will need to get a new compressor. If you have a warranty the compressor is covered

One thing you can do is make sure the coils underneith the machine are clean and the fan motor is turning. The kickplate is clean. Next you can grab the compressor relay off of the compressor and examine it.It has a floating start relay within it and should make a thunka thunka noise when shaken. If it makes no noise it is bad. If it sounds like a salt shaker or smells burned it is bad. If that is ok then find the defrost timer and see if it got hung up in the defrost mode. If that is ok check the temperature control for continuity. If that is ok then I would say maybe I would but an A-1 line tap on the suction side of the compressor and check the pressure on the low side. It should be no less than 5 PSI and no more than 8 PSI. Anyone can get R134a at automotive stores. If you have no guages then add no more than 3 ounces. If the low side begins to frost over badly then you have too much in there.
