SOURCE: How do you refill Freon gas in the refrigerator?

To recharge a domestic refrigerator you have to put a piercing valve in to the sucction line because this type of refrigerators don't have service ports.But before you do it you have to fix the leak , replace the filter dryer and vacuum the system.

SOURCE: my refrigerator is about 5

As a servicer, I could not refill you unit in this state, rather would need to find the leak and repair it. It sounds like you have a sealed system leak if this depletes in a month. You should have the systems checked for leaks rather then just having it filled. If I filled your unit knowing it leaks its a Big fine for me, I would need to have an action of repair to fill your unit to hold you unit parts are available to repair correctly. You made want to get a second opinion on this problem. Think of a seal system like a can of soda, the system is fine if completely sealed.
The EPA does not allow a certified person to charge if knowing a leak is present or if the unit looses more the 5 percent charge in a 12 month period. So if your unit hold 6oz. it can only loose .03 of an ounce.
I would seek a second opinion to solve this issue.

SOURCE: May I know the charges for the Samsung refrigerator freezer gas refill? Model no : RR1914BCASE/TL/2014

The last time I enquired the cost of recharging a domestic fridge cost about the same as for a vehicle air-con. The main difficulty is legislation (in Europe) and the falling price of new appliances has meant engineers who have the ability and equipment to recharge domestic fridge freezers are quite scarce.

If an engineer has to attend rather than have the appliance brought to him, the additional call-out charge generally means the alternative of a new replacement becomes quite attractive.

Whirlpool refrigerator model # GS5SHAXSLOO: Freezer works fine. Cool air not getting to the refrigerator area. Evaporator fan is working properly.

Hello there,

When your refrigerator tends to be running perfectly fine, but your fridge or freezer compartments are not cooling, then it means there is a problem somewhere inside the unit.

The problem could be caused by either a blocked condenser coil, or no more freon gas in the refrigerator. You need to clean out the condenser coils then refill the freon gas and your refrigerator will be in good condition once again.

Ensure your thermostat is functioning properly also.

Hope this helped you solved the problem.

Hello there,
When your refrigerator starts building up ice at the back of the refrigerator and is not getting cold, the problem actually is caused by defrost settings of the refrigerator.
The defrost settings is composed of the defrost thermostat, defrost heater and the defrost timer. If any of the three should go bad, then the refrigerator would begin to build up ice and not cool.

You will have to test the defrost thermostat, heater and timer. Mostly the problem used to be the defrost thermostat.Once you check the three and see that they are okay, then you need to refill the gas cylinder with refrigerant.

Clean the condenser coil, refill refrigerant and test the thermostat, heater and timer.

That would get your refrigerator up and running.

All the best.

Refrigerator not getting cold

Hi,from your problem it's obvious that the compressor is running out of gas or it has insufficient pressure to supply gas throughout the cooling compartment.
The solution is to refill the compressor with freon gas and service the compressor thoroughly.
Thanks and take care

Problem in Refrigerator

Hi,most times when the refrigerator is not cooling the problem is usually from the condenser or a leakage in the pipe that carries freon gas from the compressor to the cooling compartment in the unit.
In actual fact,cleaning and refilling the compressor as the service man implied should take care of the problem,but if he now says it requires to be repaired/replaced probably he discovered a great leakage or a fault with the pumping system of the compressor.If he spotted a leakage,tell him to take the compressor to a panel beater to help block the leakage,this will save you money,
But if the problem is complicated than that,you might have to replace the compressor as a lasting solution.
Thanks and take care

Ice maker not working and freezer temp only -4

it seems tht the problem is with the compressor of the refrigerator.
sometimes it happens that the "gas" in the compressor leakes off and ,tht gas is responsibale for the colling of the refrigerator.
so,either you can go for refilling of gas
or u can buy new compresssor of same rating as refregerator have.
my personla recommendation is to go for new compressor bcoz most of the time it happened to me that the customes complain abt the temperatures and some complain abt the leakage od gas again.
so,best option is to go for new compressor.
in case u hav any problem furthur just write me on my email
