These are sealed units and there is not an access port to add freon. A service tech can break into the system by adding a valve or line tap. You should not have to add freon however unless it has developed a leak in the system. These units hold a very small amount of refrigerant however and the leaks can be very hard to find and repair. 90 percent of the time these units are not low on refrigerant. The problem is usually a dirty condenser or outside coil. Take a toilet brush or other semi soft brush and brush it up and down and then blow through it with a garden hose. Make sure power is off to the unit. Do not put so much pressure to it that it bends the fins on the coil but you should be able to was water through the coil. I've been on many, many service calls where the customer insisted that it was low on freon and a good cleaning solved the problem. Especially if you live in an area where the cotton from cottonwood trees is common

I have central air and I was wondering how do you put freon in it because its not blowing out cool air


Is the compressor starting? On the outdoor unit you will see a large copper pipe and a small copper pipe. Is the larger of the two cold to the touch? wet? Just because a central air system is not blowing cool air does not mean it needs freon. If you have clogged filters it cannot do an air exchange. So, I would recommend checking the easiest things first before adding Freon.Most people make the mistake of adding Freon and overcharge their system. In a low load situation you can slug the compressor with liquid and your system is ruined. If you do have to add Freon it indicates that you have a leak. An AC System is a closed system and if it is working properly you should not have to add Freon.

You can add a can of stopo leak to the unit yourself. Locate the unit, you will see a dryer and on the side of the dryer you will see a valve for adding freon. Purchase the correct type of freon. R-22 or R-134A with a dispenser. Start the car, turn the AC on high connect and add the freon. If it cools down the leak is still present. Take it back to the dealer.

Air conditoner model gwhd5000 goldstar does not cool


Hi, first you will need to know, what type refrigerant,(freon) your a/c used, if you need to add freon, there's a leak in your a/c. you will have to find and repair leak, before you can charge/ add refrigerant(freon) . automobile a/c can be easily recharge (add) to system, but your window a/c unit, has the same principles but different approach, if you don't have experience, you will have to call mechanic, make sure you have a freon leak, before calling mechanic, plug a/c on let it work, put hands close to a/c, feel or check temperature of air blowing out from a/c, make sure compressor is working/running, fans could be working/ but compressor not, also put a/c thermostat to max, your model no. GWHD5000. means your unit is 5000 b.t.u, (british thermal unit) measurement of heat transfer, am wondering if a/c is to small for your space/room. making you think it needs freon, 5000. b.t.u. is for a small space,like a room 10' by 10' like a storage area or small bedroom, keep bedroom door/windows shut. measure you room/space/area , the bigger space/area needed to be cooled, has a chart, maybe you can find it on internet, any way a 10.000 or 12.000 b.t.u a/c is better buy, for normal room/space etc. so check compressor especially to make sure working, a/c could be to small for space/room, check it at night to see if it's colder. don't try to put gas/ freon yourself, could be very dangerous. but before calling mechanic, check those thing, mention before, could be your a/c are to small, for space/room etc. remember before attempting any repairs, disconnect power. good luck.

You have a leak in the system that needs repair. If you have to add freon to system there is a leak. You need a service tech to do the repair. If it is out of gas you may to replace it. Leaks do not correct themselves. Russ

UNIT NOT COOLING(IS RUNNING WHEN PLUGGED)


only reason refrigerent may be needed is that there is a leak so adding more will achieve nothing. unlikely to be needed. i assume compressor is running. probable causes of no cooling are compressor fault or a blockage in the pipe sysyem. not diy
