All window air conditioners have a closed loop refrigeration system. The refrigerant does not need servicing unless you have developed a leak in the system. To add refrigerant you have to buy a special valve called a line tap and break into the system. Most of the time the "low on freon" symptoms are a result of the coils needing a good cleaning. It will act exactly like a unit that is low on freon when the coils are dirty.

Why is water pooling on bottom of refrigerator under the fresh food drawers


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Your purchased a high price Samsung refrigerator. About 60% of my service calls were either Samsung or LG models. They look great on the show floor.

Your unit has two cooling evaporator coils. One in the freezer which is common and one in the fresh food section which is not common. All Sansung has done is add another series of high failure components.

You have a frozen drain in your fresh food section. You can either call a service company or shut down your refrigerator for 36-24 hours to defrost the drain. You call a service company, if I were still working for Sears, I would have to charge you about $350.00 to tear out the back wall and replace this usless coil.

Turn off your refrigerator for 24-36 hours. Hopefully it is not a fan or a colling coil failure in your refrigerator.

Hi, I have a KitchenAid KSRB25FKSS02 and our refrigerator is not cooling and it is already set to the coldest setting, but our freezer is working just fine.

This is a fairly common problem and is likely caused by the failure of a concealed fan that is responsible for distributing cooled air from the freezer section to the refrigerator side.
SearsDirect parts department has full information on your KitchenAid fridge at the link below:
The fan I suspect is shown here:
Distribution parts
Looking at the various pages should give you an idea if you consider this a DIY task or call a pro.

Is your entire refrigerator not cooling?

Refrigerant service must be performed by a certified refrigerant specialist. Are you certain that you need refrigerant? If refrigerant is required, then you have a leak. Normally, refrigerant should last for many years without requiring new refrigerant (sealed refrigeration system). Your problem may be attributed to one of the following:

* compressor
* components attached to compressor: relay, capacitor (if applicable) and/or overload protector

Contact an appliance service company.

Refrigerator freezes everything-on 3rd service call now

If you have had 4 problems in a year where Sears had to replace something, you are entitled to a new refrigerator according to the lemon law. Call the 800 number and they can review your service calls. We have had several problems with our refrigerator as well. (Ice maker, lightbulb burning the plastic cover, motherboard needed replaced and the strip that holds the two doors together fell off) Today the service man was there for the 4th time to replace the door strip. I called the number and they are processing the paperwork for a new refrigerator.
