Refrigerant in an automotive system should always go on the low side of the a/c system to prevent damage or injury. If attempting to refill on the high side, the extremely high pressures generated by the a/c compressor can actually exceed what is in the refrigerant can, causing the can to overpressurize and even explode. Plug the adapter hose (sometimes included with the can, sometimes not) into the low side port, identifiable by its blue cap. If no cap is available, it is always the smaller of the two ports. The high and low side ports are always different sizes, so if the one you're trying doesn't work, you probably have the wrong one. As far as where the port is located in your engine compartment, that is different with every car. Usually it is relatively easy to see and access. The simplest way to find it is by tracing the two metal/rubber hoses coming from the front of the engine compartment (from the "condenser", a part which looks very similar to a radiator, but is usually located directly in front of the radiator) back to the firewall (or rear of the engine compartment). One of these two lines will end up leading to your a/c compressor, a part which looks similar to your alternator or power steering pump (in that is has a pulley in the front and is belt driven). This is your high pressure line - ignore it. Trace the other hose back to the rear of the engine compartment, and somewhere along it -before it disappears in the interior of your car - you'll find the low side port located on that hose

Fridge is not cooling and the freezer stopped freezing. Can i just buy some freon or a new refrigerator

You cannot just go out and buy Freon to put into a refrigerator like you can for a car. They take a different kind of Freon and you have to have special equipment to put it in. I would suggest calling a repairman and discuss your problem with them to see if you should have them come out or just replace the unit. One of the things you should also consider is the age of your current refrigerator. If it is more than 10 years old, you might just want to use the money that you would put into a repair call into purchasing a new refrigerator. Hope this helps!

How to put refrigerator into demo mode?

Hello friend, that's a great question!
In order to put your Frigidaire refrigerator FGHB2866PF into demo mode you would need to push and hold the "up arrow" on your freezer and the "down arrow" on your refrigerator for five seconds. Once your appliance has went into demo mode both the refrigerator and freezer display should read 77. Hope this information helps. -Matt

Microwave ontop of refrigerator

Your microwave can be put on top of the fridge without causing any problems however I dont recommend plugging into the same outlet as the fridge as most newer fridges are completely computerized and are very sensative to power surges
