Yes, you need to patch the hole right away with epoxy. Before applying the epoxy make sure you sand and clean around the punctured area to give the epoxy a rough surface to adhere to. Turn the freezer off and wait for it to achieve room temperature before applying the epoxy.

How to add 134a to magic chef deep freezer


First your freezer does not use R-134a. That is for auto air conditioners only. It uses R-12. You need refrigeration compound gauges, R-12 refrigerant and a two devices that connects to and punctures the lines and gives you a port to connect the hoses from the refrigeration compound gauges. You must have a refrigeration leak if you need to add refrigerant. The leak needs to be repaired or you will lose the refrigerant in a short time again.

My freezer keeps already frozen food frozen but wont freeze fresh food


You need to put it at the top of the freezer in an upright freezer which is usually where the circulation fan is. With chest freezers you put them in the bottom. You may be able to make the freezer colder by turning the thermostat dial to a higher number. The higher the number the colder the compartment will be.


Get yourself a cheep fridge and freezer thermometer from Walmart. They have a green section where the red line should be. The freezer should be minus 18'C or 0'F.

How could i fix my ref i was able to puncture it? .. how could i fix it?


you cannot fix a punctured evaporator coil. The cost is not economical and the repair is unreliable. best consider another fridge.

Ice on the inside walls of chest freezer


Check the seal around the lid sits firmly on the rim, give it a good defrost before restocking. Make sure all else is working and clean, particularly any condenser grilles / fans.

I have a tall smeg fridge freezer. Freezer compartment working perfectly. Fridge not cooling despite all lights being on. I've switched it off then on, turned the thermostat down, then up again...


Hi Evelyn,
Has the freezer been defrosted lately? Perhaps a buildup of ice will not let the refrigerator cool sufficiently. Try this and let me know how it works out for you. If it does not have a self defrosting cycle on it, it may take some time, just do not use a sharp object in the freezer as this could puncture the freon lines and that would render the unit useless.

Punctured inside bottom of chest freezer, now it wont work. how can it be fixed?


Hi,

Sorry, but you punctures a refrigerant line and the system lost the freon...

To fix this the bottom would need to be cut out of the freezer and then the lines fixed and the system recharged...

Considering the cost of a new freezer... you will be better off to replace the freezer rather then doing that much work to it..

Good day,
Your idea was a good one, and it should not be neglected. The area your going to tape should be warm and dry. Best long term repair, would be to cut a small piece of aluminum, and epoxy it in place. The machine will need to be warm long enough for the epoxy to set, however, it should be a permanent repair.

Freezer not keeping foods frozen


If this freezer is running all of the time and only freezing the walls at the top inside it is a good chance there is deteriation in the piping in the walls eg (rusty pipes) letting the refridgerant escape (common fault) with chest freezers.If it is more than 7 years old it would be advisable to replace it as the repair would probably cost 3 quarters of replacement price.Hope this helps. Kind Regards.

Excess frost not keeping food frozen


you have a refrigeration issue. let me guess. is the frost real thick around a small area not the entire lining? if so you have a restriction or leak. cheaper to replace by the way
