Refrigerator won't get cold, it's been in storage for three years. I think maybe the freon leaked out or something. Can anybody tell me what kind of refrigerate old hotpoint fridges take and how to recharge one?

Fridge runs but is not getting cold

A leak has allowed all the coolant (used to be environmentally-harmful FREON) to escape. So, fans & pumps still work, but no coolant means no cooling.

The a/c on my truck only blows cold air when i spray cold water on it

I don't think the orifice is the problem
& different refrigerant won't be either

You caused a change of state by spraying
the condenser. Tells you something, but not much

Have you put gauges on the system to check pressures?
Have you leak tested the system?

That is where you start

Freon leak in refrigerator?

no refrigerant leaks have little to no odor and if it was leaking bad enough to smell it the unit would be out of refrigerant and not cooling...the problem sounds like gases coming off of a veggie of something un-covered inside the fridge--have you put any veggies in the fridge or freezer un-covered check real good if one or a piece of something has fallen behind something else where you cannot see...all else fails remove all your products from the unit and clean and get a box of odor control arm&hammer to rid the for a leak in the sealed system i think your just fine.

this is normal as there isn`t enough freon to keep the clutch on long enough to do anything thus lack of pressure in the system.also there won`t be enough freon and pressure in the system to show up any leak if there is one.

We have a Master-Bilt DC8 Ice Cream Storage freezer. It starts gradually warming about three weeks after we defrost it. Defrosting fixes it for a short time. We've had a repairman who replaced a part and...

Hi, It sounds to as though you may have a small refrigerant leak in the system. I wish I knew the part he replaced, it must have been in the refrigerant circuit to have to add freon, or it was low in the beginning. They are sealed systems and only require freon if they develop a leak. I think what I would recommend at this point is for them to check the charge again. If it is low, by E.P.A. law's, they need to add dye to locate and repair leaks the second time around, if it is low only. Maybe you can let me know what part was replaced, that would be somewhat helpful.
PS How are you defrosting this box? Most low temperature boxes have a defrost clock on them. Yours may not.

Water doesn't get cold anymore.

Hi, check receptacle for power, plug something, fan, radio etc, if there're power (voltage) it's possible your compressor has hard start, you can buy compressor hard start kit and try to start compressor, if compressor are working, maybe you got, freon leak, or you could have low voltage problem, or faulty overload relay on compressor, unplug water cooler, for about an hour, then replug it, let me know what happened, then i can tell you exactly what's problem. good luck.
