Re: Can coolant be added to Panasonic AC CW-C101MU? ...
This can be done if your a good hand at soldering. You need to put a inlet valve in the unit so you can put freon in this is kind of a tricky job most of the time it's easier to take it to the repair shop and let them put the valve on then after that you can recharge the freon on your own..........I hope this was helpful...... : )

the idle up solenoid may be disconnected it is usually a vaccume hose that detects extra load when ac is on and slightly raises idle . however the over heating issue is a concern . check that the radiator has coolant and all air is blead from the coolant system, check that the electric cooling fans are operational and they should come on regardless of the eng temp if ac is on. if fans are not working check coolant fan fuses
REPLACE THERMOSTAT.ITS STICKING CLOSE TO KEEP COOLANT FROM CIRCULATING THROUGH ENGINE AND RADIATOR. THE FANS SHOULD COME ON WHEN VECHICLE SETTING AT A LONG IDLE.THE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR GET TO CERTAIN TEMPERATURE WHICH WILL COMPLETE CIRCUIT PCM SEND POWER TO COOLANT SENSOR THEN TO COOLANT FANS RELAYS AND FANS.IF VECHICLE OVER HEATING WHILE MOVING THERMOSTAT FAULTY.IF YOU TURN AC AND COOLANT FANS DONT RUN CHECK COOLANT FANS FUSE AND RELAY.IF COOLING FANS DONT TURN ON WITH AIR CONDITIONER ON EITHER COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR FAULTY OR PCM FAULTY.IF ALL LOOKS GOOD.IF ENGINE OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE.YOU HAVE BLOWN HEAD GASKET.
I believer to panasonic does not pull out but you have to take the unit apart by taking it out of the wall and removing a screw on top (or more) and all of the screws around the bottom edge. It has been a number of years since I worked on a panasonic but if there are screws around the bottom this is usually a sign its a cased model and not a slide out. But on the mold if you have any it will be on the inside coil only if you see no visible mold you have none. If you want to kill mold spores mix a 10% solution of bleach in a spray bottle and spray the inside coil with the unit off ketch any drips and then hold a towel ect you dont like over the front and turn on the fan (no need for cool just fan) Shut it off and repeat. Then let it set for 10 min and then spray with clean water just like the bleach but do it 3 times. This will kill any mold in your tray or backside of the coils. I hope this helps just becareful with the bleach it is very uncomfortable in the eyes only happened to me once never again. good luck
NEVER OPEN THE COOLANT RESERVOIR WHEN THE ENGINE IS HOT!!!
If the coolant level gets too low, the air gets inside the cooling system and there's no proper circulation. Here's how you can fix it yourself: turn the heater on maximum temperature (inside the car), then start adding BMW coolant (it has to be the BMW coolant) to the overflow tank -cooling reservoir. Some models have a bleeder on the upper radiator house, so you have to loose the bleeder. The fluid will push the air out- also there may be a little of coolant coming out, which is O.K..
Next, tighten the bleeder after the coolant reaches the maximum level,close the reservoir and start the engine and wait till it warms up to the normal operating temperature or in other words, when the cooling fan (the fan is just behind the radiator) turns on and off. One more thing, there should be hot air blowing out of the heater inside your car. If it blows cold air, there's still some air in the cooling system and you should see a mechanic.If you don't, you might over-heat the engine.
it is likely low on coolant or as some say "freon" that or the indoor fan motor has not run properly. let it thaw completely by shutting it off and just turning on your fan switch from auto to the on positon. if you begin to feel air flow eventually you need coolant added b/c you probably have a leak from the system being old
Maybe you have a magnetized display. To get rid of that, plug your tv out from the mains and find a soldering gun (those used by electronics guys). Place the lateral of the gun near on the front of the display (touching the glass) press the button and slowly move the soldering gun around all the surface of the display. Carefull not to touch anything or yourself with the tip of the gun, it get's hot. Do this for about 2 minutes. Then power back the tv and check if something is different.
