Re: wisperkool 1600

I can't find anything on this one.  It should say on the tag where the model # is what kind and how much freon.

How to add Freon to a Air Conditioner or Refrigeration System

Adding Freon to an air conditioner or refrigeration system takes very specialized equipment and years of would be impossible and irresponsible of me to try to tell you how to do it through a computer.

Let me explain this further….
In small refrigeration systems such as you have in a refrigerator or a beveage cooler, the amount of freon in the system can often be measured in ounces of weight. Many times, just a few ounces. To get these charged correctly takes tons of experience and very finely tuned equipment. Just removing the hoses can release enough freon to make the difference between the system working or not working. Very sensitive scales are needed to weigh in the freon. To make sure the correct amount of freon is in the system, the system must be evacuated to a complete vacum. You need to have a special pump to do this.

To add to this, most small refrigeration systems are factory charged and sealed. They do not have access ports built into the system. To do anything to these system an access port must be correctly placed in the system for proper evacuation and charging. Then also add the the equation the fact that if you need to add freon to your system, where did the exsisting freon go? Finding and fixing very small leaks also takes sophisticated detection equipment.

The next problem is the many different types of freon that are used today. Some equipment has the type used, very clearly marked, but many do not. Only knowledge and experience can tell what type freon is in the system, and then it can be very difficult sometimes.

Air conditioning systems can be a bit more forgiving, but are getting more and more difficult to analyze and figure out exactly what is going on. The many types of refrigerant and variable speed compressors are making troubleshooting very difficult. Add temperature sensors and variable speed condenser fan motors into the mix and it becomes a nightmare.

Heat Pumps are very sensitive to either under or over charging. The only correct way to charge a heat pump is to evacuate the system and weigh in the correct charge.

Leaks in heat pumps or air conditioners are often very difficult to find, also. But finding a leak and fixing to correctly is the only way to achieve a successful repair of an air conditioning or heat pump unit.

So hopefully now you can see that refrigeration, air conditioning, and heat pump system charging is not something that can easily be done without the proper training and equipment.
Oh, and did I also mention that it is illegal to handle and repair any type of system the contains any type of refrigerant with out a refrigerant handling certification in the United States? Yes, and the although rarely anyone has been charged, it still is the law.

Please call for a certified repair technician to repair any refrigeration system and do not try to do it yourself.

How do you add the refrigerant yourself to your cooler GDM-12

I will tell you what the factory says. Get a reclaimer and remove the remaining refrigerant from the system. Put your vacuum pump on the system and finish removing the noncondensibles from the system. Take a scale that weighs in ounces and weigh in the exact charge stated on the spec. tag that gives you the model and serial number and refrigerant type and charge. If you just try to put some gas in you will have a refrigerator that builds up ice on the coil, wont shut off, makes bad sounds, and has compressor problems. Hope this helps and good luck.

The compressor is on but not cooling

The reason why its not cooling is because it needs to be charged with refrigerants. Try charging it with the compatible type of refrigerants.

The noise appears that is comming from the black ball shaped (compressor) up to the right side in front of a cooling fan. when it starts it is load then it drops the noise level a bit, and it stays like...

This indicates that the compressor is overloading. Maybe due to low freon, or the compressor itself is defective. Loud compressors indicate the system is not having enough charge. You can try charging it using a line tap available at most ac supply. Then you can use a retro fit and charge it with 134. Refrigerators use the same kind of freon as cars.

Need ref charge in ozs suct press at temp for superba 42

Refrigeration charge in grams will be found on the label with the model number and serial number. The type of refrigerant is also on this label and the type of refrigerant which is more than likely 134a. You can weight the gas in or you can charge to 10psi, then run unit and adjust up or down as required.
