As soon as the proper pressure balances are established the cooling process starts. Nomenclature of "Re Gassing" is not the term someone who knows refrigeration would use. In the trade the term recharging would be used. However certain procedures are necessary before this is done. If the system lost its charge there is a leak which must be located and repaired. The system filter dryer must be changed. The system must be evacuated to a very low vacuum to remove any air and moisture from the system. Then the charge should be weight in according to the system name plate charge. Over or under charging can cause problems. This operation should only be attempted by qualified people.

Hi Dave
Might need re gassing!
An AC Tech has the gauges to test the compressor pressure & gas. There might be a sight bubble in the line as an indicator, If you know where to look on the Receiver Drier Can.

Got a beko chill53w fridge and its freezes up at the back but doesn't get cold. Any ideas?


If it freezez inside at the back, check the door seals. If it freezes on the rear radiator outside, the gas needs settling or re gassing.

I have a Maytag two door fridge which is ten years old and still operating OK except that it is blowing in warm air instead of cold. Does that mean it needs regasing? and if so how can I get it fix...


Might not need "re gassing", check the coils in the back or underneath the unit to make sure they are clean and not full of dust or animal hair etc.... The coils are supposed to pull heat from the gas and if they are plugged up, they can't do what they are supposed to. A shop vac with a narrow tool end is best but anything to get in and clear the coils would work. Do NOT bend or try to separate the coils. Re gassing an appliance is something better left to a repair shop. Pending the refrigerant used it could be harmful to you or the environment.

After such a long preriod of not being used the fridge probably needs re-gassing. You will have to call someone in to carry this task out.

Frig is not cooling at all


Try bypassing the thermostat. If the compressor runs and cools the fridge the thermostat needs replacement. If it runs and does not cool, the fridge needs re-gassing. If it does not run, check the wiring and plug. If that is ok then the compressor is faulty.

I have thoroughly cleaned out my Zanussi fridge/freezer, but there is still a lingering smell. It is definitely not food related, Could it be to do with the 'gassing' of the appliance?


unfortunaly you will have to remove the back panals in the freezer to expose the evaporator... and spray with antibactirial cleaner.. as barcteria grows hear and causes smells... nothing to do with gassing.... if gas leaked out the appliance wont cool at all.... Rob

Amana SBD 522VEBONY - fridge freezer is not staying cold -


If your freezer works after regassing...and after sometime the problem occurs again. It seems to me that there is leak on the pipes in which where the gas runs, that is why it runs for sometime after regassing, after some time the gas that was loaded during regassing leaked through the atmosphere and the problem occurs again. It would be better if you replace it with a new fridge.
Hope this idea helps.
