You would have to be able to find some first. The EPA frowns on anyone that sells certain refrigerants to people without an EPA certification to use the product. Most window ac's do not have service ports on them which is ok. You can go to your locak HVAC wholesaler or contractor and purchase what they call a quick-tap. These clamp onto the refrigerant piping and pierce the line. There is your service port. Get some R-22 and a manifold set and your set. There is more to it than that really. You have to make sure you pierce the right line and do not overcharge the unit. It may be best to take the unit to your local appliance store and let them take a look at it. If they work on freezers and refrigerators, they should not have a problem with your window ac.

What is going on with our Goodman unit?

If your going to pay that much just have them put in a new unit. It is not that much more and you can get free financing. All the repairman can do is guess and keep putting in new parts till it works. Had a new unit put in and it still didn't work found out it was a bad thermostat. But at lest we don't have the repair bills or high electric bill anymore so it paid for its self in saved money.

How do you add freon to haier window unit air conditioner

Window units do not come with service ports. You can buy them at local parts houses, but unless you have the freon, not gonna do you any good. Window ac use either r22 our 410a, and that cannot be bout without being certified.

Where do you install R22 piercing valve on RV ac system?

R22? You're not still using that are you?! On the compressor you have a small tube that goes to the condenser (hot side) and a larger tube that comes back from the evaporator (cold side) The piercing valve goes on the cold side, Fit the guages to the valve. You should have about 3 bar with the unit running

How to add r22 freon

This needs to be done by a certified HVAC Tech. But if you are trying to add Ref. you probably have a slight leak in your system and that needs to be adressed before you try to add Ref. Otherwise u are wasting your money. And R22 isnt cheap.

My Fedders AC in my 2003 Roadtrek runs but doesn't blow cold air. Can't find valve in order to recharge it. Can you tell me where it is?

Window Air Conditioner are sealed at the factory,
no service valves & you can not buy R22 without
a licence

If you had to add refrigerant,common sense would
say you have a leak

Seldom repair that type of unit

It can be repaired sometimes, but usually they are
20 years old & you get a new one

How to add freon to a coleman mach model# 8633-876 serial # 089817583 do you suggest r12,or r22 freon type. is this a easy procedure or does it take a ac person? the problem is it not cooling to full...

It's R-22 and you need to be licensed to handle it, if you're not a A/C service technician or fimiliar with charging an A/C system, then it is best to have a Coleman Service Technician to charge it for you.
