SOURCE: Recharge My AC Unit

The system needs to be accessed through what is call a tap valve. After a tap valve is in place a high vacuum should be pulled on the system down to 500 microns to remove air and non condensible gases along with any moisture from the system. Then the charge should be weight into the system according to the name plate with the proper type of refrigerant, generally Refrigerant 22. An alternate method is to charge the system by superheat of the gas returning to the compressor. Ambient temperature determines how high or low the superheat should be.

SOURCE: air conditioner needs freon

If the system runs you will first need to add freon to the system (make sure it the right freon) Just enough to find leak. After you find leak and repair evacuate the entire system and weigh in charge. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: AC is not blowing cold air. How do I add freon?

What you will be looking for (in your engine compartment) looks almost like a large valve stem that you would see on a tire. It will probably have some kind of plastic cap on it.

It shouldn't be that difficult to find. You may want to search for an engine compartment diagram for your make/model/year vehicle.

SOURCE: not blowing cold air

Your in house core could have frozen over. check the core inside the indoor blower unit. it may have frozen over. this will interrupt the cold air function.

SOURCE: My air conditioner won't blow cold air. It just blows air.

Hello I'm a M.B. tech. 1st you need to know why the freon is low. Hopefully it just needs to be serviced. There is a component located in the lf of the engine compartment called a receiver drier. It soaks up the moisture in the freon so the gases can work the way they are supposed to. On this unit there should be 2 switches(I believe they were combined into one switch in 98. 1 switch is a temp switch that operates your electric fans, the other is a compressor cutoff switch. Assuming the compressor is not coming on-take a fused wire and bridge the 2 contacts- If the compressor does not come on at all there is another problem(it is not low on freon. On the condenser there is a high side port(it is the bigger of the 2)By the brake master Cyl.(lf of the engine compartment thereshould be a smaller low side valve in line with the fuel cooler hose. Usually you can hook up a machine to the low port and **** freon in through that port. Assuming you do not have a refrigerant machine. It is very self explanatory on the bottle of r 134a refrigerant which can be purchased at your local auto supply store. I would start with 1 lbs. and add dye with the freon in case there is a big leak. If the system is overcharged it will not cool properly. I believe the system capacity is approx. 2 lbs. Add a few ounces after the first pound until a/c system is cooling properly and the electric fans are also coming on when the system gets to high. If you get a can with a good Gage set on it you should see the high side between 150 and 2000 psi(fan coming on at max. press.) also the low side should read about 35. It is about the temp of the evaporator which is i=located in the dash and the blower blows through this component out through the vents. Hopefully I have been helpful.

How do you add more freon?


Make sure the thermostat sensing tube is in it's place first. The thestat can be faulty too. The likely hood of Freon leaking is remote but possible. You need a whole bunch of special equipment to find the leak, repair it and recharge the system.

When the compressor kicks on, is the air from the vents blowing cold? If the air isn't blowing cold, then your problem could be that you may have water in the system. I had a '93 Chevy Z71 that wouldn't blow cold and thats what my problem was. System needs to be evacuated and refilled. Good luck bro.

I have central air and I was wondering how do you put freon in it because its not blowing out cool air


Is the compressor starting? On the outdoor unit you will see a large copper pipe and a small copper pipe. Is the larger of the two cold to the touch? wet? Just because a central air system is not blowing cool air does not mean it needs freon. If you have clogged filters it cannot do an air exchange. So, I would recommend checking the easiest things first before adding Freon.Most people make the mistake of adding Freon and overcharge their system. In a low load situation you can slug the compressor with liquid and your system is ruined. If you do have to add Freon it indicates that you have a leak. An AC System is a closed system and if it is working properly you should not have to add Freon.

My 2000 buick lesbre doesn't blow cold air like it


Hi bennysosiris...
If your compressor is starting and stopping regularly and it is not blowing cool as it one did then I would say:
Yes you need to add some freon to your system...depending what kind of freon it takes if would be better to take it in to have a professional install your freon to the proper pressure and volume.
Please take time to rate me

Need to add 'freon' to my samsung window unit.


Hello, in order to add freon to a window unit you must add a piercing valve to then low side of the system. The valve mounts to the suction line and allows you to connect your gauges and add freon. Here is a link to where you can purchase piering valves. http://www.hvacr-tools.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=HVACR&Product_Code=BPV31&Category_Code=VALVES

I have a fedders ac unit that does not put out cold air only for a couple of minutes. model # A2Q06F2BG-D can i add freon


Hello, you can add freon by installing a piercing valve on the low side of the system. Before adding freon I would check and make sure the air filter and both coils are clean. If everything is clean then most likey the unit has a leak and is low on freon.
