Question about Heating & Cooling
Gold Star about 4-5 yrs old. I pulled a stunt one day on this unit. It had water in the bottom and the fan was hitting the water. I got the bright idea of drilling a hole in the bottom to let the water out. You guessed it I hit the tubing. Question is where can I find the valves to put the freon in to buy, for I can't find them on this unit. I was told some of these small units don't have valves. I can solder , have done it for yrs. I hate to throw it away when I colud fix it for a fraction to replace.
You could get the valves from a scrapyard either out of a car or old refrigerator to solder in and refrigerant gas recharge cylinders from eBay.
Alternatively you could solder in a thin copper tube to refill the AirCon then crimp it before cutting and soldering it to make a perfect seal. This is how the manufacturers do it.
