You have to have a licence to repair a sealed sytem in the usa

Posted on May 08, 2008

You only need a license for harmful refridgerant. Most cars and fridges use R134A which can be bought at any auto parts store. Having the right tool to load it might be difficult for an applicance. For cars the tools are cheap and available.

How do i recharge the coolant?


Hi,
Recharging the coolant on a refrigerator is not something that the average person can do...an access valve must be installed, and beside the fact that the charging process is very very tricky, specialized equipment is also needed to do the job correctly...

I have not recharged a system in a while. If the system is out of freon will the compressor still turn to pull in the refrigerant.


It should take the freon . Compressors will actually pull a vacuum if the refrigerant
is completely exhausted. You should be able to recharge system if the unit is just low
on refrigerant.

If no pressure is in system, I would have the accumulator replaced and
have a vacuum pulled on the system before recharging it. (The accumulator has a
dessicant/ filter in it and may become clogged if the system is empty)
The vacuum is to boil off any moisture in the system
from having it open and also to check for leaks. If moisture enters the system because of a leak then it can freeze in the metering
device when the system is recharged. I hope this helps.

On the dashboard of my 99 deville it says a/c off low refrigerant. how do I turn the ac back on to recharge ? thank you ...


You will need to recharge it to get it to come back on, it has a pressure switch that will prevent operation until the level is brought back up to normal.

I need to know where the recharge port is to recharge A/C on a 1999 Ford Expedition


Your A/C system will have two service ports, there isn't any "recharge" ports. You add refrigerant to the LOW side only. Prior to adding any refrigerant, you need to check the system pressures with a manifold gauge set. If the system has enough charge and there is another issue, adding refrigerant can make for worse problems. Automotive A/C is best left to the right person with the proper equipment to service them. If you follow the lines from the compressor, the LOW side will be the smaller diameter of the two service ports.

Can I recharge the refrigerant myself? or do I really need to call a pro?


You need a pro; unlike a car AC, there is no nipple provided for recharging the system, it must be cut open and soldered shut. Probably $100-150 US.

95 honda accord trying to recharge ac. will only take a about half a pound on a empty system any suggestions


run a vacuum pump on it prior to recharging. Chances are you're adding refrigerant to air. But more importantly, if you're adding refrigerant, you got a leak. It's useless to keep adding refrigerant without finding and repairing the leak, and not removing all air out of the system prior to adding refrigerant

My air is blowing warm can i use 1342a?


The real answer to your question is yes, the kit may work. Here is why you shouldn't use a recharge kit: Theoretically, your vehicle's refrigerant (R134a) should last forever. Your AC system is a sealed unit and the refrigerant never gets used up. The only way you can lose refrigerant is by it leaking out of the system. However, if your refrigerant can leak out then air and contaminates can get in. This is bad. A recharge kit simply injects refrigerant into the system. It doesn't evacuate the system of any air and contaminates.This is critical. Your AC system should be hooked up to an AC machine in order to evacuate out all of the air and contaminates in the system. The machine will then hold a vacuum on the system to verify its integrity.Finally, the machine is able to inject new compressor oil that also contains a dye that will enable the leak to be located. If you use that recharge kit, you stand the chance of over pressurizing the AC system and causing premature compressor failure. This can be very expensive. Paying a reputable shop to evacuate and recharge your AC system is much less expensive. If your AC system hasn't operated in over 6 months, it's especially critical that you have the repair to your AC system performed correctly. Your AC system's seals may have dried out and the new compressor oil will be critical in helping to recondition those seals or the seals may need to be replaced. Good luck and hope this helps. keep me posted if you need help to recharge the system.
