Are you saying that you believe the compressor needs freon? If that is the case, the cooling circuit in household refrigerators are sealed. You HAVE to have someone come and service it.

Freezer is fine but the fridge is getting warm

This is normally due to a lack of gas which means there is a leak in the system. Eventually when it looses all it's gas the freezer won't work either. Gas leak must be traced and repaired and the system must be refilled with gas.

Hi I have got a daewoo FDF 358 fridge/freezer. Hasn't been on for a couple of years. Motor running but not cooling. Would it be possible just the gas needing refilling?

Most likely the gas leaked out, or the compressor is defective even though the motor part is running. Could also be a check valve in the system.

If the gas leaked out, it would be necessary for the service tech to find and fix the leak before refilling. If not the gas will be lost again if there is a leak. The service tech should be equipped to verify the pump pressure and if the rest of the system is working okay. This type of repair is not cheap.

With some fridges the condenser pipes are inside of the walls of the fridge and not accessible. If the leak is in an non accessible area then the fridge would be scrap.

Im looking at buying an LG fridge with the double doors and freezer on the bottom. It also has the ice machine and water hook ups but it needs a gas refill how much will that cost?

I wouldn't buy any modern fridge that needs a gas refill. Needing a refill means that it has a leak. Modern fridges are 'sealed unit' compressors and should NEVER leak. If they do then there is a leak, often in the evaporator coils inside the fridge and commonly between the copper to aluminium joins. These leaks would need to be repaired however most piping is not easily accessible. Cost may be $100 to $300 for re-gas plus repair $$$ and unless the leak was located and repaired then you will be re-gassing again in days, weeks or months.
LEAK needs FIX LEAK and re-gas.

I have a Samsung Cooltech Plus fridge that seems not be able regulate the temperature correctly. At times the temparature is 22 celcius and food gets spoilt, I tried switching it off and on again but that...

Keep your hand on condenser coil if it's visible or left and or right side body of the fridge. If you feel hot the gas is o.k. Otherwise no gas or chock. You have to repair and refill the gas.

I want to know about the gas cylinder in a haier fridge freezer, that is apparently reqired to be refilled at times thank you

Hi Tania, there should not be any reason for repeated refilling of refrigerant unless there is a leak in the system. The cylinder you refer to is the compressor and drives the refrigerant through the system. It is quite common for fridges to develop small leaks which should be repaired at the time a fridge is refilled. These leaks can sometimes be internal in the walls of the cabinet in which case it is not possible or practical to repair them.
