Question about GE Hotpoint Top-Freezer Refrigerator
HotpointIs it hard to replace some of the freon in a hotpoint frige? We had a huge power surge and the frige smelt of freon after I yanked the plug. But after I pluged it back in it is now running fine and getting cold. The freezer (on top)is even freezing again but I have it past the middle setting so I know all it need's is some of the freon replaced. If I get a kit from a parts supply place is it hard to do? I dont have the money to pay someone to do it for me and I dont have the money to buy a new one. Even a used one is $100.00 and it would be my luck it would break down as soon as the 30 day warenty is over.
I replaced leaking evaporator coil in this video and charged it with freon R134a

The only time u need to add freon is IF you have a leak... I dont see anyway a power surge could cause loss of freon. Not sure what u smelled but I dont think it was freon. I wouldnt mess with opening you Refrigersnt system ... If you do need freon... means u have a leak.. depending on how bad the leak is ..This will be how long u got before you have to add again.. No guarantee how long it would last 2 days, a week, a month???
