How to charge freoon in sce275 ice maker

Why would you wont to change the freon? It would cost more to convert one freon over to another than you could buy another ice maker for. You cant just change freon over from one type to another. You would have to change the compressor, the TXV, all dryers, Make sure you have removed all the oil from the system that is trapped. Now if it is low and you are wanting to charge it back up then you need to find the leak and repair it first.Refrigerants do not deplete them selves so if it is low than you either have a leek or if you keep putting gauges on it then you loose some charge every time you do this. So if you have no experience with a refrigerant system i would call a service company.

I just replaced the Compressor in my Kitchen aid Ice maker. Charged it to 6.2 pounds of pressure but kitchen aid will not give me the pressures it is supposed to be recharge to. Does anyone know?

Before you charge the system with R-12 freon you should check it for a leak, as with your ice maker it has leak that's why the pressure suppose to be is not reach. It also be clean by flushing R-11 into the system. If you have friend that has technical skill in ref repair ask for help. Better if you find the leak sealed it.
Good luck friend.

2002 for taurus a/c was blowing ice cold then just stopped all of a sudden, i think compresser not engaging jumped the switch fans come on put on new switches and still nothing. anybody help please its hot...

if you let it sit for a few hours will it get cold again? if so you may have a problem with the evaporator icing up. but that is only true if it will get cold after it sets and thaws.that would mean the low pressure switch is stuck closed. if that's is not it please get the pressure readings and post them .we will be better able to help. you should have at least 90 lbs static pressure at 75 degrees out side temp.if the pressure is lower or less than 50lbs. with the engine off .the freon has leaked out.if it took years to leak out just put 1 lbs of freon back in. they now sale freon with the low pressure Gage built on the can .so you will know if the level is low. with the engine running you should see about 25 psi on the low side .it will change as the compressor cycles

Hello, i have a hoshizaki ice flaker, when i turn on in to ice mode, the compressor run for a few second then it shut off. what could be the problem. thanks

There are several possibilities. The most common is probably low refrigerant. Are you sure the compressor is actually running? If it just humms for 2 or 3 seconds, it may be a burned out compressor. That would be bad news. Take the side panel off and turn the unit on. If the compressor comes on and runs, the small line coming from the compressor to the condensing coils, (the thing that looks like a radiator) should be hot to the touch if it is not you are probably low on refrigerant. There is a safety switch that shuts the compressor off if you are low on freon. The compressor would "short cycle". That is it would come on and off and not every minute or so. That is bad for the compressor and won't make ice either. Also if you don't get a constant flow of water it might do the same thing. There is very little the average person can do to an ice machine as complicated as this one. Check your water flow, check the air flow throught the radiator like coils near the compressor. Other than that you need a refrigeration mechanic to check the freon pressures.

What you started out with was a defrost issue,adding freon made your problem worse,pressure on the low side when fully charged should be around 0 to 3 lbs.
 the most common problem with theses units is the adaptive defrost control sits in the refrigerator section top right corner above the white plastic cover.part # 61005988 runs about $70.
 Second most common defrost issue is the defrost thermostat # 61006199 runs around $45 comes wired in with the heater assy sits behind the wall in the back of the freezer. But first you need to get someone to evacuate the system and put in the right charge it will be on the model number tag on the ceiling of the fridge it's somewhere between 4 and 6 onces not pounds.

I have a FRS26ZSHB FRIGIDAIRE. I replace the ice maker and the valve and it still does not make ice.

do you have water at the dispenser if so when you replaced the icemaker did you replace the harness that clip that usually come with the new item. If not the freezer may not be cold enough for the imkr to freeze properly are the item you put in the freezer soft or take a long time to freeze may have a freon issue

An apppliance company has installed three ice makers and none of the three have worked. they may drop ice once or twice in a 24 hour period. there is also frozen water in the ice bin. Can you tell me what...

you can make ice at30/31 degrees F but ice makers do not start until it is 0/4F clean all coils and if it has a condenser fan see if it works or you may be just low on freon thumbs up

Either side getting cold

Sorry - maybe I did not exactly understand . Anyway the cooling coil is inside the rear of the freezer and cold air for the fridge is blown from that area for cooling. You need to remove the rear freezer cover panel to check the coils for an ice buildup which stops the air flow and cooling.
If you see no ice then you may well be low on freon and most certainly have a leak. Removing the back will give you access to check those coils for a leak also.
To check freon pressures you need to buy a Bullet tap or two which clamp on the high and low side of the compressor and pierce the pipe like a ice maker water tap except the Bullet tap has aconnection for freon test and refilling hose

What freon 134A

The freon in most ice makers are R 410a at this time. You will be able to find the type of freon your model has listed most times on a data plate on the rear of the ice maker cabinet and on or near the compressor. R 134a is not always used in production ice machines because it does not freeze water as productive as
R 410a. The type oil in the compressor also will lead you more in the direction of the type of gas. Now If you need to replace the freon or compressor I can help you determine the exact type of freon gas was existing before the change, Let me know if this has answered your question. Thanks, Sea Breeze
