How do i add refrigerant to a amcor kf900e portable air conditioner"


The compressor picks up the gas that is bringing the heat removed from the house to be compressed to liquid and cooled in the condenser coil When running the compressor is very hot. When the freon is low the compressor will be cooler because it doesn't have as much heat to compress. To add freon you must add a service valve to the low pressure line.

How to hook up a lp generator to a 1988 winnebago elandan


Is the coach already equipped with a generator and you are changing over to LP? If this is the case, usually you can contact the generator mfg to find a direct replacement for the old generator. You will need to cap the supply gas line for the old generator. You will then need to install an LP supply line. This should be done by a certified technician who knows where to secure the line and what size regulator to install. Ensure the generator is properly mounted, exhaust properly installed and routed to prevent carbon monoxide from entering the coach, power load lines are properly connected to the transfer switch (if equipped) and the control harness is properly installed.

Add coolant to a fedders a3t12f2al 12000 window ac


You can recharge the compressor with R134a refrigerant gas, but not with coolant. But, the compressor will have to be purged of any existing refrigerant gas, before recharging with new gas.You shouldn't mix old with new, because depending on the age of the unit, it may still have Freon in it. Freon has been banded by the EPAand doesn't mix with the new gas.

Hope this helped answer your question. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Not cooling, but seems like everything is on


Hi,

If your refrigerator cooling doesn't seem to be working well, and you have no idea what to look for in troubleshooting your problem, there are some things you can do to try to figure out your problem without paying a serviceman to come into your home.
Freezing

Most new refrigerators come with automatic defrosters. Although this is a standard feature the drain hole in the defrosting assembly can get clogged with debris, lime, or even ice. If this happens the defrost will not work and there will be a build-up of ice in your freezer that begins to block the freon from flowing properly and causing heat to react improperly and cause your refrigerator to stop cooling.
Freon

Freon systems in a refrigerator are closed systems but on occasion you may need a recharge. Refrigerators use R-134a freon, just like in an automobile. The old R-12 freon is no longer available, so if you have an older model of refrigerator you will not be able to obtain the freon, and it will be recommended that you replace that refrigerator.
Seals

The seals that are on the door of the refrigerator and freezer can dry rot with time. When you begin to see the seals cracking or warping, if your refrigerator opens more easily than before, or if you see the the door does not close fully without pushing on the door then the gaskets around the doors will need to be replaced. They are held in place by clips and the replacement is an easy fix.
Holes in Lines

Let's face it, many people find ice in their freezer or the back of their refrigerator and will try some self-help without knowledge. They will grab a knife or fork and start chipping away at the ice. This is extremely dangerous. There is a great risk of puncturing a hole in the freon lines by stabbing at the ice. Since freon has the purpose of cooling most ice collects the thickest on the inside of the walls with the freon lines right behind the plastics. A better method of removing the ice is to empty your refrigerator, turn it off and leave the door open. If you want to speed up the process you can turn on a blow dryer and aim it at the edges of the ice. If you aim at the edges you will warm up the ice and create warm water which will flow down and help to separate the ice panel from the wall.
Uneven Refrigerator

If a refrigerator is not even on the floor it may not close properly. Rock your refrigerator and see if it seems to topple from one foot to another. The feet on a refrigerator can be adjusted by screwing in or out and leveling each foot individually until they are all even.
Non-Problem Warming

If your home is hot your refrigerator will work harder. If you put a lot of food in your refrigerator and freezer, your coolant will have to work harder, and it will seem to take longer to cool. It is just that there is a lot of food that is trying to freeze or maintain cool temperatures.

Hope this helpout....

HAve an Americana refrigerator works great on AC but doesn't cool on lp but burner gets hot??? Any help


If thid is a piezo electric refrigerator, then there asnwer is probalblyloss of refrigerant for the gas burner coil. The piezo electric does not need the refrigerant to work but the propane gas does. I assume this is for a trailer/camper? It is possible to be some other problem , but loss of refrigerant (freon) isthe most likely problem. This will require an expert to determine the source of leak and repair it.

My uline refrigerator won't get cold at all. Was


If the refrigeration motor is running and it is not getting cold then it probably is low on freon the gas that is used for refrigeration. Also if the motor only runs for a few minutes then stops it is possible that the cold control is bad, This is a common problem in refrigerators and can be fixed by replacing the control. First you must determine that the motor is in fact running. If the motor is running the motor should feel warm to the touch after 10 to 20 minutes of operation, and you should feel some cooling in the refrigerator on the cooling or evaporator coil. If the motor is running and getting warm or hot and you feel no or very little cooling then it is in fact ether low on freon or a component in the refrigeration system is malfunctioning. Freon can only be replaced by a certified technician.
