Question about Refrigerators

It is not getting cool enoungh. I need to put Freon in it, but it has no lines where I can adjust a cord to. Is there anything I can buy to put between the lines so that I will be able to put more freon in the engine.

Kegerator no longer running cold


You need a new start device if your compressor is not running/pumping.That is the box on the side of the compressor .If you can put your hand on the compressor to make sure it (compressor) is than you have a Freon leak. The small line copper coming off the compressor should be between 75 & approximately 85 if its not ho you have Freon leak somewhere.

I hate the way my extension cords look. Is there anything I can do to beautify them?


I don't recommend putting anything on extension cords that you already have because you never want to mess with anything electric if you aren't a technician. So I suggest you check out buying these really cool cloth extension cords. Here's a link to a site that sells them. They even have pink ones!

It is possible,but the only way to tell is to put gauges back on it,also,if the cooling fans are not coming on,it will cause this also.

Need to add freon to '99 chevy venture


on a 99 they use R134A and I suggest you buy a can from autozone the one with a gauge on it and it has compressor oil in it. When you use the can that has the gauge it will tel you several things one if the compressor is leaking and does it have vachum and it will keep you from over charging. It will hook up on the low side, and it will be on the passenger side by the fire wall. unscrew the blue cap start the car turn the ac to max A/C and fan on max do this in the morning as it will take a chage better if it's not hot, then crack open the valve on the can to allow enoungh freon to get the air out of the line of the can, this is very important, air mixed with refrigerant creates an acid in the ac system and will eat the rubber hoses and the orifce tube. Now screw the cap of the can on quickly and get it tight and open the valve on the can 1/2 to 3/4 turn and watch the gauge, shake the can back and forth to allow gas and liquid into the sytem so it will not slug the compresor with to much liquid and damage the compresssor, continue to wath cht gauge if it gets about 50 then shut off the valve and wait watch the gauge to see if it drops down to 30 if it does check inside to see if the air is cool if it's colder ad a little more watching the gauge as you do and continuelly shaking the can back and froth that is from side to side not up and down, I want to be clear about that. If the gauge reaches 50 shut the valve off check to see if it is cooling more, watch the gauge with the valve off if it drops to 30 again then quickly unhook the can screw the cap back on and then drive it on a stright away for a couple of miles to see if it gets cooler, if it does you may try to add more refrigerant but be careful cause at a certain point like 50 on the gauge it will stop cooling and yo will have it over charged and since you can't see the high side pressure we are just guessing what it is, if it's 30 on the low side then it will be 225 on the high side if its close to 50 the high side will be 300 to 350 and close to poping the safety release valve. good luck and hope this helps, normally the reciever dryer has to be replaced and the orifice tube but you might get lucky. And follow the direction I gave you exactly, if you see the pressure build to over 50 shutthe car off and unhook the hose anddo not attempt to charge it, it can blow the can up if the pressure gets to high. Good Luck.

Sometimes the clutch pulls in on the compressor but most of the time it doesnt i tried to put freon in it but it wouldnt take


if the clutch is worn and when the a/c works, it works OK, then the clutch gap is excesive and will need to be adjusted. you cant put freon in without the engine running, the low side pressure will be too high. get the compressor running first. if it cools ok, then dont add freon.

Goldstar GWDH 5000 does not cool after storing this winter


sounds like low freon or a blockage in one of the lines, especially since the you say only one row of coils is cool. usually window a/c's have at least a 1-year warranty and since you are pretty close to that, the manufacturer may honor it. if not you will need to have the system fitted with a bullet piercing valve on the low side lines and see if the unit is low on freon with proper gauges. if it is not showing low then there is probably a blockage and the high side should be checked as well. if this unit was an expensive one it could be worth having it repaired. a simple recharge may cost less than a replacement, but anything else probably won't.

The unit outside is getting ice around the line close to where you put refrigerant in. House not as cool as needed.


Freon is low. Sounds counter-intuitive, but the large return line should be cool( even have condensation on it) but never cold enough to freeze.Either use factory pressure settings or add just enough Freon until Ice melts. If unit has a high-side sight glass there should be no bubbles present. Do not overfill.

How do I recharge the AC freon on my own?


You should have R12 freon in a 1990 but you can put R134 freon into that system the only problem your going to have is the adapter for R12 is different from R134 after you get the adapter you need to put the freon in the low pressure valve not the high pressure, you will know which one because the adapter only fits the low pressure valve which is located on your AC lines under your hood, theres a little cap thats either blue or black you unscrew. You can't buy r12 anymore because its not good for enviorment so buy R134. you can buy at any parts store for like $5 to $10.
