    Don't think there's a leak. Just isn't as cold anymore.

    You can recharge if you need to got to find leak and repair. Then just weigh in the right amount of freon.

Ok in that case it is dirty at the condenser side of the unit. To clean it is a little involved as you need to pull unit out of case and take some housing parts off. But if you take it apart and look at the condenser coils you will see a blockage of air flow across coils. Refrigerant doesn't wear out of just leak out once it is in system good till unit goes bad for good. When you clean the coils use a nozzle and try not to point at angle keep it square to surface. I have cleaned bunches of window units and you will not beleive the difference it makes it will work like new. Any ?'s just get back with me glad to help. ken

Why won't my compressor on my dometic not come on?

It really makes no difference what the AC unit is in, it's still AC. I've come across this situation many times, and found that unit is just low on Freon. Once, and only once, I hound a loose thermostat connection at the unit, so the compressor didn't know it was supposed to come on. Nonetheless, Check the connection AT the unit. If good, you'll have to get an AC man to recharge it because the charge line end is soldered shut. IF by chance there IS a fitting with a plastic cap on it, like on your tire fill, get a recharge kit with connecting line and recharge it with ONE canister of Freon. Get the kit from auto parts distributor, remove the plastic cap from the AC charge line, open the piercing valve on the kit line and connect to the can. DON"T pierce the top yet. Connect the other end to the AC charge line finger tight, now pierce the top of the canister with the T-handle/knob AFTER starting the AC to suck the Freon into the system and screw the piercing pin back out part way to release the Freon. NOTE: To get all the stuff out of the canister, stick the canister into a bucket of hot water you took up with you. Once the canister is empty, remove the kit line from the charge line, trash the empty, hide the kit line somewhere in case needed again(won't have to buy another kit, just Freon bottles), put the unit cover back on and stay cool.

How do you put freon in a whirlpool window unit

you will need a AC Tech to first 'repair' the leak and then to 'recharge' the system. Also, the Tech may have to 'weld in' service valves on the unit if it does not have them - which most window units do not have.
Note: unless you've had a 'leak' you'll never need to recharge the system. I would 'be sure' you needed to recharge the unit before having it recharged.
Sounds like you might really need to have a AC Tech look at the unit before you do anything.

I have a Fredders A3X05F2A-J model and was wondering how to recharge the unit, if possible? If so where could i pick up a recharge kit?

I don't beleive there is a DIY kit for recharging window air conditioners. At least not one, that would be reasonably affordable (less than $100.00) . Now, if you have a friend who's in the auto repair business and as part of his work, he recharges automobile AC compressors, he may can help you. As he would have the knowledge to balance the high and low sides of the compressor. As well as evacuate and capture any freon that's left in the system. As freon has be banded by the EPA. R134a is now the refrigerant used in AC compressors. By now, I guess you figured out, that recharging the system is not necessarily a DIY project. It's best left to the pros.

Hope this was of hep to you and thanks for choosing fixture.

2002 acura tl a/c compressor comes on but no air comes through vents.

You need to get your AC recharged or you can purchase a kit to recharge your ac. In the kit is the instructions to recharge your AC. You could purchase a kit at wal-mart or any parts store. Below is a picture of the "Quest Auto A/C ReChill kit" that can be purchased at Napa.

For use during an extended power outage, where of course you wouldn't be able to recharge the battery after it drained initially, I'm wondering if anyone has tried using a 12 volt lead acid rechargeable...

You simply need a DC - AC Inverter, these can be obtained from somewhere like Radio Shack, or the like, pretty cheaply. These convert 12V DC into 115/120V AC (Some are 24V - 115/120 V) for use with your household appliances. You can get them from 100 Watts to over 1 kilowatt (!000 Watts) They can be used on almost anything at all, except things with big motors in them. Then you can simply plug the AC adapter into the inverter and you are good to go. not having to worry if your laptop is getting correct power.
Often the DC input into a laptop is between 14 Volts DC to 22 Volts DC and a high current too, up to 5 Amps. So the inverter is your best option.
Anyway you would need to use at least TWO 12 Volt batteries and then you would have to make it the exact voltage the laptop needed.. if it was say 19V then you are still going to have to find a way to drop the 24 V to 19 V, anyway so.....

Sorry but does the dw911 xe type 1 radio charge the battery

Yes, the DeWalt radio will recharge the batteries, from the 12 Volt to 18 Volt versions. However, even with the radio plugged into an AC outlet, you have to either have the radio turned on, or have the unit in the AUX setting, in order for the batteries to get charged.

It typicaly takes about an hour +/- to fully charge a discharged battery. I normally don't put batteries directly into a charger right after they become discharged from being used in a tool, since they are still warm from use and charging them will generate more heat in the recharging

Heat is the enemy of rechargeable batteries, so to get the longest working life out of your batteries, I'd let them cool down first, before recharging them, unless you absolutely need to use them right away, then go ahead and recharge them. If you can delay recharging them until they've cooled down, you'll get a more fuller recharge out of them.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

My air is blowing warm can i use 1342a?

The real answer to your question is yes, the kit may work. Here is why you shouldn't use a recharge kit: Theoretically, your vehicle's refrigerant (R134a) should last forever. Your AC system is a sealed unit and the refrigerant never gets used up. The only way you can lose refrigerant is by it leaking out of the system. However, if your refrigerant can leak out then air and contaminates can get in. This is bad. A recharge kit simply injects refrigerant into the system. It doesn't evacuate the system of any air and contaminates.This is critical. Your AC system should be hooked up to an AC machine in order to evacuate out all of the air and contaminates in the system. The machine will then hold a vacuum on the system to verify its integrity.Finally, the machine is able to inject new compressor oil that also contains a dye that will enable the leak to be located. If you use that recharge kit, you stand the chance of over pressurizing the AC system and causing premature compressor failure. This can be very expensive. Paying a reputable shop to evacuate and recharge your AC system is much less expensive. If your AC system hasn't operated in over 6 months, it's especially critical that you have the repair to your AC system performed correctly. Your AC system's seals may have dried out and the new compressor oil will be critical in helping to recondition those seals or the seals may need to be replaced. Good luck and hope this helps. keep me posted if you need help to recharge the system.

Window Air Conditioner

Second try....
Any unit can be recharged, however, its not cost effective to repair most window units unless they are under warranty.
