You have to go on the high pressure side. It means that it would be better to put a acces valve on before the dryer. The 134A needs to be charge liquid to make sure that the bottle is upside down. Hope it was helpful. :)

I would suggest you have it serviced, sounds like the coolant gas has slowly leaked out. A good indication this has happened is that the bottom of the freezer is a lot warmer than the top. To repair an engineer will first cut the coolant pipe and drain the existing gas and then recharge, re-pressurise and seal.

Need to recharge a unit. What type of oil is used?


Good day,
If it's an R12 system it uses mineral oil. If R134A it would be esther oil which is alcohol based.
You would need to go to a commercial refrigeration store to buy it. They will know what you need, however, if no oil has been lost there is no need to add additional oil. That is a car thing, and does not apply generally to appliances.

How do i add freon to system


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.

Sounds like your freezer has lost its charge of refrigerant. That motor sound is the compressor. And the internal thermal overload is tripping it out every minute because refrigerant also cools the compressor motor. Have a licensed repairman find the leak, seal it,and recharge it with R134a refrigerant.

Need to know what type of freon to use to recharge a one yaer old Beverage Air Sandwich table refrigeration unit. Is this the same process as recharging an automotive AC system?


Beverage air used R134a almost exclusively on refrigerators. The process is similiar to ac systems. You should weigh the charge in as per the data plate. Be precise as over or under charge can dramitically affect the performance of the unit. Hope this helps
