I have an ocean frost free freezer and need a new drawer front. anyone know where to get one?


You can try the manufacturer:
Company: Ocean Electrical Appliances Co., Ltd
Address: Mashe Industrial Area , Guihe Road, Lishui Town, Nanhai
City: Foshan
Country: China
State/Province: Guangdong
Zip/Postal Code: 528200
Phone Number: (86 757) 81853704 (86 757) 81853706
Fax Number: (86 757) 81853702
Homepage Address:http://www.globalsources.com/oceangd.co

But for more immediate response, try a local appliance dealer that handles that product.
Other than that, try the secondary market or used appliance dealers, they occasionally "part out" appliances.

Older model, motor funs, but does not cool the chest


Well one way to find out is to look on the back. It shows all the info including what kind of freon to use. Usually the manufacturing date is on there. If not see if it uses 134 for refrigerant. This would at least indicate it is not really old. 134 was introduced in the late 90s. replacing R12. If you meant the compressor run but do not freeze, unplug it because the compressor can be damaged if it run without refrigerant for long period of time. If you meant the fan in the freezer was running, the compressor might not be running at all thats why it is not getting cold. This could be caused by the breaker switch on it not resetting anymore. It may have a leak it too, and all the refrigerant has leaked out. If it operates on 134, you can buy a line tap, 134 adapter availabe in auto parts store or walmart. Buy you some freon in the can. A propane torch, solder, and some flux. If you have a friend who is handy, or a mechanic. They can do it for you much cheaper. One does not need refrigeration license to work on refrigerators. Only the know how. I can give them instructions. Last note. a fridge usually take 1/2 to 3/4 can of 134.

Convert r-12 to r134a


if the compressor is r12 and want to use it with 134a you need to change the oil in the compressor before you do the change, and while you change if make sure that he 1st 50oz of gas you charge it with the compressor off. its recommended r12 because it works better at high temperature.

I have a Admiral freezer Model F1053. I was wondering how old it is and what you thionk it is worth if I sell it? I works fine.


I don't know how old your freezer is. These freezes can run for decades. About the only thing that will go wrong with them are, leaky freon which isn't producted anymore. It a against the law to own, product, distribute, black market it and freon based the R series, such as, R12, R16 etc. If this happen to your Admiral Freezer I don't think the make a retro-fit kit for it for modern day coolent 134a and some others.

If the conpressor is working and no rattles an it keeps food item frozen to about 14 or 16 below zero and it appearance is striking. I would it's awesome!! $50 to $125 max... GB stewbison

Freezer froze on top thawing on bottom


Dispose of the unit and buy a new one. If it leaked the refrigerant out you have to fix the leak before charging it again. The chances of finding the leak are slim.

What should refrigerant gauges read when charging walk in freezer?


Depends on what kind of refrigerant its works, if is an old unit probably is charged with R12 or R22 newer ones work with R404 ;for R12 presures should be around 20psi on the low side and 160 on the high side ,for R22 about 60 and 250 and for R404 50 and 350 ;you have to look at the condensing unit tag to find out what type of freon its uses ,or look at the expansion valve at the evaporator coil.

Food thawing in freezer


You may have a small leak in the evaporator. You could try to get a replacement freon with stop leak from the automotive store and give it a shot. If it is a R12 unit then it is too old to repair. But it is worth the gamble to shoot it with freeze 12 or an equivilent before you condemn it.

Inadequate cooling on walk in freezer


YES GOOD ADVISE . ALWAYS START WITH THE BASICS. IS EVAPORATOR COIL CLEAN AND CLEAR? ALL EVAP FANS RUNNING? DRAIN PAN CLEAR? IS STAT CALLING FOR COOL? IS OUTDOOR COND COIL CLEAN? IS OUTRDOOR FAN RUNNING WITH NO PLAY IN BUSHING? DO RUN AND START CAPS TEST GOOD? DOES CONTACTOR LOOK GOOD? THEN TRY TO CATCH UNIT WHEN TEMP IS ABOVE DESIRED SETTING. FIRST TEST STAT. IS IT OPEN OR CLOSED? IF BOX IS HOT AND ITS OPEN THEN PROBLEM IS STAT. IF STAT IS CLOSED AND OUTDOOR FAN IS NOT RUNNING THEN COMPRESSOR PROBABLY OVERHEATING WHEN FAN QUITS. CHECK FOR VOLTS TO FAN GOT VOLTS? FAN IS BAD. NO VOLTS? TRACK BACK TO SOURCE OF POWER ( CONTACTOR) AN R22 BOX AT 52 PRESS IS NOT TO BAD ON START UP ON A HOT BOX BUT COULD BE HIGH ON 502 408 OR R12 STUFF TYPE OF REF IS DEFINITELY IMPORTANT. GOOD LUCK

How old is this freezer


Check the name plate for refrigerant type, if R134A it was made after 1992, If R12 it was made before 1992. If you can find the name plate on the compressor there should be some kind of a date code on it in the lower left corner.
