Can freon be added

I have had a couple wine coolers and they have been "throw aways" when they quit cooling. Is that always the case?

Based on what you are saying, when someone says it's a "Throw Away" unit, that means that it is cheaper to buy another one than it is to have the current one fixed.
Now, do you have a specific that we can try to address and possibly do a repair to?
Let me know and Good Luck on your project.

How hard is it to add freon to a wine cooler?


Don't attempt it, need special equipment, seek additional quotes but if it's leaking them there is a gas loss issue. You should never need to add gas to a fridge that is sealed in the factory.
Askntechnician why it needs a gas top up? It must be leaking from the pipe work. Adding gas wont solve the problem, you need to find the sauce of the leak to remedy the problem longer term.

My Hair 12 bottle wine cooler quit cooling. what is the main cause?


Possible bad thermostat. Bypass the thermostat wire to run the compressor. If the compressor start, replace the thermostat. On the other hand if the compressor is running, and there is no cooling; there is a leak and all the refrigerant probably escaped. If it is the case, you need to call serviceman and have him evaluate the wine cooler for possible repairs. P.S. The serviceman may charge a fee for evaluating or estimating the cost of repairs.

How do you add freon?


adding freon is not the answer unless you can prove you have lost some. The unit is hermetically sealed so should not lose freon unless you have punctured the system and the gas has escaped. you will probably need a fridge expert to test and check over the system.

FR23SL Uses Peltier Cooling - No compressor nor freon....


Luzer - Thanks for the very helpful solution. My cooler has the problem described. When I take off the back and plug it back in, all three fans run, but the unit does not get cold. Is it possible that it needs new fans anyway (like maybe they are going but not moving enough air to generate the effect)? Or woudl it be something else?

Thanks!

Unit was leaking at rear coil, sealed the leak but know it needs freon. Can it be added?


All fridges, freezers, coolers, etc need access ports added to them before any refrigerant can be added to them. Makes you wonder how they do that eh?

Motor very hot; not cooling


If the compressor is hot it is possible that it is short cycling. Make sure the compressor is running and that the condenser fan motor is running if air cooled.

Brand new out of box and will not cool - after 12 hours - compressor is very hot ?


First question is, are there any fans that are built in that are not running? next is there may be no freon in the unit. Ive seen new stuff from the factory have no freon inside. feel the suction line (the bigger one) from the compressor. It should be cool. The discharge line (smal one) should be hot.
