Get a saddle valve like THIS ONE. Sand down the suction line or compressor ear and attach the valve. Connect hoses to the valve and add some freon. The low side pressure should be around
5 PSI.

Good day,
If it's a newer model it would use R134A, if older R12.
In either case if it's developed a leak, and the leak cannot be found and repaired, then the machine is terminal.
Recharging a freezer is like putting air in a flat tire. It'll just leak back out.
The only exception would be if the machine is under 5 years of age, in which case it would be under factory warranty.

What to do if you have a freon leak in the freezer


charge with detail (that is a Freon with Red dy solution to help locate your system leak) locate leak, repair using silver solder, evacuate system completely, pull vacuum down to 27" plus Lbs. vacuum, close system to hold vac pressure, monitor pressure for 30 minute or so, if vacuum hold pressure then you have successfully fixed your system leak, next hook up your system to the manifold gages assembly to a Freon supply source, all this while retainning your vacuum pressure, slowly crack open the valve on the manifold to allow the new freon to enter your system until you see pressure building up in you system, next monitor the discharge line i.e. the bigger line until you see frost extending outside of your freezer unit toward your compressor assembly, then close the freon supply valve, wait for a while to see if the frost line recede into the unit box, if it does not recede but stay out of the box or extend some more then you must must release some freon slowly a very small amount at the time until the frost line has regressed into your freezer box. this should complete your repair, good luck

We have a Master-Bilt DC8 Ice Cream Storage freezer. It starts gradually warming about three weeks after we defrost it. Defrosting fixes it for a short time. We've had a repairman who replaced a part and...


Hi, It sounds to as though you may have a small refrigerant leak in the system. I wish I knew the part he replaced, it must have been in the refrigerant circuit to have to add freon, or it was low in the beginning. They are sealed systems and only require freon if they develop a leak. I think what I would recommend at this point is for them to check the charge again. If it is low, by E.P.A. law's, they need to add dye to locate and repair leaks the second time around, if it is low only. Maybe you can let me know what part was replaced, that would be somewhat helpful.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7
PS How are you defrosting this box? Most low temperature boxes have a defrost clock on them. Yours may not.

If your compressor is running with no freon, It should be very hot. Check if it is. And if it is and the freon has leaked out. Then you must find the leak in the system before you add more freon. If you dont this will be an ongoing problem. The freon will leak out after any length of time. This is a very hard task to find the leak, and you will be money ahead to buy another if you dont find the leak than to re charge every year or so.

you dont want to add any more freon to it to start with

it either has to much in it or the thermostat is not turning it off and making it run to long, you need to see what temperature you are getting in the freezer and what suction pressure the unit is running on to determine if it is over charged

Need to add freon


  • if you are tapping into a sealed system, then you use the larger of the two copper lines coming out of the side of the compressor (this is the low pressure line, the compressor pulls from this side).
  • clean off the copper tubing with some fine sandpaper before installing your tap.
  • it is very easy to over fill a system with freon, so i would recommend pulling down the system to -30 psi and holding for at least 20 minutes. then add a known amount of freon to the system. 
  • let it run for a while, it will take a little time to get the temperatures down.
