Question about Whirlwind FH-778 Air Conditioner
Can I repair a leak with just soldering it...it has a pin hole leak and all the freon leak out...
The answer to your question is yes. It can be repaired by soldering the pin hole if you know what to do. You will need to use silver solder due to the ability of it having a much higher tensil strength. You can go to home depot and buy the $50 small torch set and do it your self. Then have some one come and charge it for you for a small fee if you do not have the Capability of getting Freon.

Let me cut to the chase. You may have saved yourslf $50 by finding the leak. But by law(Sec 608) federal, you can't go further unless you are EPA Certified. And then you would need Air conditioning grade Brazing material,(way stronger than plumbing solder), Oxy\Acetylene torch, a reclaiming unit, and a vacuum pump, R22 refrigerant that you need to be certified to buy, Gauges, the list goes on and on. Unfortunately you'll have to bite the bullett and spend probably a couple hundred dollars. Sorry, but I'm shooting straight here. Good luck
