97 Plymouth Breeze won't blow cold air due to freon leak.


Your AC system is a closed system, so the fact you have to put more Freon in, means there is definitely a leak. I would check it out with a mechanic.

SkyBox not cooling. I replaced the start capacitor and the relay switches. (It worked a couple years ago but not this time.) Condenser is almost too hot to touch. Is condenser out of coolant? (R134a).


It could either be very low on freon or it could mean that the compressor is out. You should check the compressor out before you put a lot of money into the freon.

I have a SkyBox vending machine. It has stopped completely cooling the drinks. The get a bit cool, but don't get cold. I suspect that it is out of freon. Is this somehting I can fix myself or is there...


You will definitely need a professionals help here because if the freon/refrigerant has leaked out then there is a leak that needs to be found and repaired. Then the system must be dried completely before being recharged and this takes special tools and knowledge. Definitely a techs job. good luck!

My maytag skybox does not cool very well even when turned all the way to high.


1) your box may be low on freon,
2) fault thermostat may cause unit run non stop,
causing evaporator to ice up and blocking air
circulation,
3) Dirt condensor thus reducing operation efficiency.

Check the simplest problem first - make sure condensor
coil is clean. if not, use a vacuum cleaner to clean condensor.

For # 2 is more likely if the evaporator has a fan.
If it has, check to see if it runs; it is behind the back panel inside box.
While at that, see if evaporator coil iced up. If it is defrost using hot water and turn it on setting thermostat to normal temp. setting.
If it work fine and later develops same problem, replace thermostat.

If the above 2 solutions don't solve the problem, call a technician to check freon.

Compressor runs constantly, fridge cools, but not as cold as new


If unit is running constantly, and not nearly as cold as it used to be, most likely a freon leak. Possibly a partially frozen over evap too. If evap is mostly clear except for about 5% of it, most probably a freon leak. Changing controls will probably not fix anything. Need to look into this a little deeper.

Good Luck and hope this gets it done for you.

Check the compressor to see if it is running. Is it too hot to touch. If so make sure the condensor has proper air circulation to cool it. If the compressor is cool to touch and running. There is a leak in the refrigerant sealed system.The compressor isn`t doing any work because there isn`t any refrigerant in it, therefore will not creat much heat. A humming and clicking sound is typical of an overheated or damaged compressor. If the compressor isn`t running and connot start. It could be a bad start relay on the side of the compressor or a bad compressor. If you can remove the start relay, shake it and listen for a rattle sound. If it rattles, it is bad.If not. then it is time consider the cost of a repairman verses the value of the appliance. Check the cost of repair to the sealed system or maybe even replacing the compressor.I hope I have been of some help to you.

Maytag Skybox approx 4 1/2 yrs old


It may well be that the sealed system has partially lost its charge of refrigerant due to a leak. On these very small systems locating a leak can be very labor intensive and costly. At the compressor there will be two lines. With the compressor running the small line should be hot to the touch and the larger line cool to the touch. If the small line is barely warm it could be a sign of the shortage of refrigerant in the system. At the same time the larger line entering the compressor would be near or at room temperature.
