On your name plate of A/C unit it will say the unit is factory charged with so many ounces of refrigerant. It will say the weight in ounces depending on the length of your line set you may or may not have to add freon. usually if your line set is longer than 20 ft you will have to add freon. The best way to charge an A/c is to wait for a hot day and charge the unit until it sweats back on your suction line the big insulated line. when the line sweats back to the compressor stop charging unit you will be fine. If this helps please rate me and give me a testimonial.

How do you add the refrigerant yourself to your cooler GDM-12

I will tell you what the factory says. Get a reclaimer and remove the remaining refrigerant from the system. Put your vacuum pump on the system and finish removing the noncondensibles from the system. Take a scale that weighs in ounces and weigh in the exact charge stated on the spec. tag that gives you the model and serial number and refrigerant type and charge. If you just try to put some gas in you will have a refrigerator that builds up ice on the coil, wont shut off, makes bad sounds, and has compressor problems. Hope this helps and good luck.

What gas should I add to the portable air conditioning unit ?

First of all, you don't add "gas" to any AC unit. You add "refrigerant" i.e. freon because AC units (as is ALL cooling) devices run a refrigerant cycle. If you have to ask this question, you shouldn't be adding refrigerant to the AC. Seriously, there are EPA regulations that make it illegal for anyone to knowingly release refrigerant into the atmosphere, and you might be a good candidate for doing so. The fine is something like $200,000 per day per incident. But if you are adamant on doing so, you'll need some expensive tools to evacuate the refrigerant that's currently in the unit and replace it with something like R-134a. The AC should have documentation (if not written on the unit) on what type of refrigerant is is currently using. If you have to "add" refrigerant to it, that may mean that it is leaking; if it's leaking, you'll need to find and fix the leak first, or you'll be violating EPA regulations.

Trying to add freon to the air conditioner, need a diagram of the air lines.

If you need a diagram you have no refrigeration training

So don't try to work on that system, just to possibly ruin it

Leave it to a trained mechanic,that way you don't polute
the atmosphere & break Federal EPA Laws

I own a 2007 Yamaha Virago XV250 VI. I am looking for an owners manual as I know enough about my bike to know I don't know. Currently I know that the front tire needs air but I don't know to what...

Look at the sidewall of both tires. There will be a 'MAX PSI' embossed on the tire. It will probably say Max 45 PSI. At 45psi the bike will ride like a rock. At 15psi it will ride really squirrely. Find a psi at which you feel the bike handles well and rides well. One rider may weigh 125 pounds and the next rider may weigh 300 pounds. The best psi for each rider will be different due to weight. Chances are that 30 to 35 psi will do the trick. A Yamaha dealer should be able to get you a manual. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks.

How do you add refrigerant to a kenmore fridge and what kind fo you use


You have to be EPA certified to install freon in any appliance.
Freon is a greenhouse gas and regulated by the EPA. Any freon took out of system should be recovered.

Are you competent enough to work on appliances?

You have two lines on a compressor, large and small. I braze 2 -1/8" access fittings about 6" away from compressor. Then I install freon gauges to the fittings. I weigh the freon in with digital scales. Freon in a refrigerator is in a small amount and the charge is critical. If the freon is all gone, a deep vacuum will have to be pulled with a vacuum pump.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Leaking oil in a big way from around the oil pan is their a diagram available so I can determine where the oil is coming from

Don't know about a diagram, I don't see where that will help, but you might want to check the oil filter, oil filter adapter, oil pressure sensor all located at the oil filter, if you cant find it , clean the under side of the engine at the car wash and add engine dye to the oil, there is a kit that has a black light and yellow glasses in the kit, the additive is seperate, the light will make the additive glow yellow, always look at the highest point because oil spreads so bad, tighten the oil pan bolts not to tight, you will push the gasket out and have a worse problem. check around the front engine seal (front of the crank)

Need bread to be lighter, more fluffy

To make it light and fluffy you need to add more water or milk so that the dough is sticky, also add a little more yeast. You will have to experiment to get the right quantitys but as a rule if the recpie adds 2 tsp of yeast i add 1 more, with the water if it aske for 10ml extra for every 100gm of flour.
