Depending upon the way you charge it you could introduce air into the system. The lines need to be bleed before charging to make sure the refrigerant is in the charge lines and not air. Most folks that do not do this for a living make that mistake.

With air in a 134 system problems will abound. The only way to really charge a system is to use a vacuum pump to pull it down then charge to the correct lever in ounces as provided on the label of the refrigerant u purchase

Prev owner says he would set temp for freezer at lowest setting. Said he had to recharge annually. It is an Amana R-134 system. Can I use over the counter refrigerant with "Stop Leak" additive?...


The only way you can loose refrigerant is by a system leak.
Call factory service and have them check it out. They will install a drier with uses a special dye to find the leak. It is the only manufacturer approved additive.

Proper refrigerant levels for Amana Side by Side refrigerator


Hi, normally the suction pressure on a refrigerant -22 system will be between 60 pounds gauge pressure (which keeps it above freezing point) and about 80 pounds. This depends on the temperature condition.Make sure that the superheat and subcooling are correct to see what is to be considered normal for the conditions you have present.

Take care

Where is the low pressure port A/C port on a 1997 Lincoln Mark VIII. Be more specific than the smaller port on the larger line as the smaller port on the larger line doesn't fit any of the refrigerant...


LOW PRESSURE PORT HAS A BLUE CAP ON IT.MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING REFRIGERANT R-134 BLUE CHARGE HOSE.R-12 CHARGING HOSE WILL NOT FIT R-134 SYSTEMS.SEE YOUR CAR HAS R-134 REFRIGERANT SYSTEM. THE EARLY 90S CARS HAVE R-12 REFRIGERANT SYSTEM.YOU NEED R-134 CHARGE HOSE SET.

System pressure for puron read 280 and 135 for low side. System is not cooling at all. Suction line at air handler is not cold at all. System has had problems with leaks and customer has told me some...


the system must be leak checked, refrigerant recovered, evacuated, a drier installed, and recharged to the correct subcooling, (I assume this is a carrier since you reference "puron")
the low side pressure seems to be in line the high side pressure would be low depending on operating conditons, these systems must be charged using superheat and subcooling methods, pressures are just a "starting point"

A/c will not work . pump will not engage


The system is likley low on gas,causing the low pressure switch to dis-able the compressor clutch.
Check the low gas pressure switch by briefly looping the switch out of circuit.
If the compressor clutch now engages normally it confirms low system gas (Don't run for long like that or it will ruin the compressor).
Get the system re-gassed and checked for leaks.

Want to know operating pressures on a 134a refrigerator low and high


Maximum efficiency is achieved when there is the greatest difference between high side and low side provided the low side stays under 30 psi or so. The low side pressures must stay low enough to cause the refrigerant to change states in the evaporator. If you see frost on the compressor suction line, there's too much refrigerant, and you'll overload the compressor. The correct approach, if you have the equipment and it sounds like you must have a gauge set but you need recovery to do this right, is to evacuate the sealed system, (a tight system will hold a vacuum overnight, but an hour is a good test if you suspect any leaks) and refill with the exact amount of refrigerant (by weight) as indicated on the ID tag.. Any system that will not perform when filled to that specification has either a bad valve in the compressor, or a restriction caused by contamination. Contamination is usually from moisture (humidity) introduced into the system by improper servicing, but is usually relieved if the system is under vacuum long enough to boil out the moisture. If the compressor is the culprit, it's usually game-over.

Operating pressures for 134A refrigerant system


I would go for 40 on the suction and 150 discharge, or divide the locked rotor current by 6 and charge so the current is 1/6 of the locked rotor current of the compressor, or by temperature/pressure relation 110* discharge and 35* suction, or get the suction line sweating. The best way is to remove all the refrigerant and then weigh the refrigerant the system is designed for on these critical charge appliances.

Cubic feet?


Most refrigerator models with two digits, the rest letters, the digits stand for the cubic foot capacity of the refrigerator. In you case, 23 cubic foot model.

Air compressor


actually might be not to hard, the problem is than you need a recovery machine to save the refrigerant and then recharge the system with refrigerant, and acording to the year of your car it might be R-12 OR R-134. REFRIGERANT, if r-134 it is ok but if it has R-12 then just have a shop working on it since the r-12 is too expensive, i will recomend you to retrofit the system tro freeze-12 all this 12s and 134s than i'm talking about is the kind of refrigerant on your car, but if it has r-134 leave it like that,
and feel fre to ask for any thing elese and good luck
just one more thing, if you are going to try to recharge the system by your self make sure to do it by the low pressure side and not the high because it will be very very dangerous.
