Question about Whirlpool Furniture
I had a service tech out and he wanted 300 dollars to recharge my wine cooler with Freon. Can I do this myself?
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.

do you have a recovery machine and gauges you need to tap both sides to check the high to and it needs to be vaccumed down to remove moisture ,find and fix the leak. leaks arnt verry common un less someone broke a line somehow. if the compressor is running it is more likley it has a restriction or bad valve in compressor, hooking to high and low sides will determine which if is less than 5 years old it could be under warrant still most sealed systems have a longer warranty than the rest of it is the evaperator getting cold at all.

Taken from another poster at Home Depot reviews and similiar to what others have found...
The e3/e4 problem is the "connectors" for the fans to the middle separator shelf are put in the pathway of condensation. This causes them to get wet and rust. PLEASE NOTE: If you decide to attempt this fix, you take full responsibility for your fridge and the outcome. If you don’t think you can do this…DON’T! Call a licensed electrician. Here is how I resolved my e3 issue: 1) Unplug the fridge
2) Remove all wine and the metal shelves
3) Remove the 2 screws from the middle separator shelf, one on each side on top
4) Remove the 4 screws from the backboard, one in each corner
5) Slide out the middle shelf slowly, on the right hand side towards the front of the shelf there will be 4 connectors you must disconnect before removing the shelf (they are tucked into the shelf). With one hand on the backboard and one on the shelf, slowly take them out together
6) Once you have the backboard and shelf out, you'll see there is a black and white connector, each having a red and black wire on each side
7) These are the fan connectors that are causing the issue. Mine were brown/green and damp (not good for electricity)
8) Using wire cutters, cut as close as possible to the "black" connector on each side to remove it. You will have 4 wires left, 2 from the backboard and two from the shelf (both having a red and black)
9) Take some of the sheath (cover) off of each wire
10) Take the red wire from the backboard and the red wire from the shelf and twist the metal portion together
11) Cover w/ electrical tape!!! Or you will have the same e3/e4 issue
12) Repeat step 10 and 11 for the black wires
13) Move onto the "white" connector and repeat steps 8 - 12
14) Put the backboard and shelf back in the fridge. Be careful not to pull the backboard and shelf apart or your connection may come apart
15) As you slide the shelf in, make sure the wires you disconnected in step 5 are in the "channel" on the side of the shelf or the shelf won't slide properly.
16) Reattached the 4 connectors and then re-attach the backboard and the shelf with the screws
17) Plug the fridge back in
18) Put the metal shelves and wine back in" Sucks that a $0.10 piece of heatshrink on the connectors could avoid this...? Bad Design.

that's always a possibility but not always the case. The thermostat may not be cycling correctly or set wrong. The condenser could be dirty or if there is a fan, it may not be running. Freeze ups can also cause an "Out of temp." condition. Check it out.

You will need a inline piercing Valve similar to one of these:
This will give you the service port you need to access the freon line
