How much R134 refrigerant do I add to an empty A/C system on a 1995 ford Taurus?

You can not add to an empty system, with just air inside it

The system must be checked for leaks & repaired first

If that was done, then you need to pull a vacuum on the system
& see if it holds,I assume you know that,if not, you need a repair
shop with the correct A/C Equipment

The amount of refrigerant is on a sticker under the hood,also in factory service manuals & repair shops have it in similar data base

Your referring to a complete charge of the system,not adding to it

That has to be done under a vacuum & you need some knowledge of the laws of physics pertaining to refrigerant

Helps to have the factory charts also, to look at ambient temp at the
time of charging & system pressures

Have a shop work on it

I have a True GDM10 i recharged it is cooling but the Compressor is very hot. Any tips why?

Its very important that you weigh the charge carefully. You need a scale that measures in ounces. The system first needs to be evacuated to get the system to hold an accurate charge. The spec. tag will give you the factory charge. If you've done these things already and its cooling properly rest assured the proper cooling vapor is getting back to the compressor where it counts and the dome temperature is as it should be and really not that important. Hope this helps and good luck.

How do you lower the cooling temperature, and how do you add Freon?

To answer the Freon question these have a critical factory charge in them and they need to be evacuated completely and recharged within an ounce of the factory charge. To fail to do that will keep the unit from shutting off and the thermostat will have no control since it measures coil temperature and not cooler temperature. Hope this is helpful and good luck.

How to put freon in my p12A

This should only be performed by a trained service technician. Not only is this potentially dangerous to the untrained person, but there is also a high potential to damage the equipment further if not charged properly.

The charge is to be metered into the suction line up stream of the compressor (charge liquid only if a blended refrigerant is used).

Most self contained unites will not have pressure taps to charge yourself, the would have to be added and soldered in aftermarket.

If in fact you had pressure taps, you will need a set of refrigeration gauges. Refrigerant needs to be weighed in, usually in ounces for a small unit. Charge is critical on these types of systems, just an ounce or two off can make a very big difference. You also need to know what type of refrigerant the unit requires, this is usually found on the name plate of the unit along or near the refrigerant charge the factory put in.

Also, if the unit entirely lost its charge, it would need to be evacuated to a deep vacuum to get all of the air out of the system. Without doing this you are wasting time and money as air in a system will create very big problems.

Furthermore, you need to make sure there is enough oil in the system, and without giving a reason or amount of refrigerant lost from the unit it is hard to give you an exact plan of action.

Need to charge unit

look at the data plate on the condenser and it will give you the factory charge that was put in unit when it was built. You will need to do superheat and sub cooling to make sure the charge is correct if it's a newer system. You might want to call a A/C company to due this for you. Good luck

Where do i hook up to charge a hotpoint refrigerator?

Charging a refrigerator is NOT a do it yourself job. You should have a tech certified in sealed system repairs do this if needed. Most of the time, consumers think if their refrigerator is not working it needs refrigerant. This is rarely the case. Just why do you think you need to charge a factory sealed system?
