SOURCE: bev air cooler

Bill, the main reason I've noticed for higher than normal temps in these boxes is filthy condenser coils (this will affect pressures in your sealed system). Remove the front lower panel and inspect your coils. Use a coil brush or a dust broom to thoroughly clean them up, don't use water. You can also pick up some condenser coil cleaner in a spray can from your local appliance parts store, but it's not necessary (the fumes are strong and may be objectionable to your customers... it gets 'em really clean, though!) After cleaning the coils, allow 24 hours for temps to stabilize. If they don't, here is a site for Beverage-Air, contact your local servicer with you exact model and serial number for pressure specifications. http://www.beverage-air.com/technical.service.html Hope this helps! Let us know, will ya?

SOURCE: beverage air dd58 kegerator won't stay cold

the freon system is a sealed system. If you are adding freon, there is a leak. have the leak repaired and this should resolve the issue. Freon should not need filling but one time and only after the leak is located and repaired.

The compressor needs to be running.Also you need freon charging guages and a pressure temp chart to tell how much you need to add.
If your not sure of anything i said here have a service person do this.You take a risk of damaging the unit and yourself.

Ive owned the 10x6c for 2 years never used it because of my wiring doesn't have a ground,,let my neighbor borrow it and it doesn't blow cool air I hear the compressor turn on but no cool air?


If the compressor is coming on and the air is not cold, it could be that the freon has leaked out. Easiest way to check for no freon is to take the cover off the unit and run it in cool. The high side which is the smaller line coming into the top of the compressor should be hot, and the low side which is the large line coming off the side of the compressor should be cold when the compressor is running. If there is no temperature difference between the high side and low side tubing, you have no freon. Also check for oil residue once you have the cover off. If you spot oil, you had a leak and have no freon.

My 2000 buick lesbre doesn't blow cold air like it


Hi bennysosiris...
If your compressor is starting and stopping regularly and it is not blowing cool as it one did then I would say:
Yes you need to add some freon to your system...depending what kind of freon it takes if would be better to take it in to have a professional install your freon to the proper pressure and volume.

We have a dual therm dometic air conditioner on top of a livestock trailer. Air only no heat. It has been cleaned and very clean filters. Always has worked great this year got ready to start up and will...


Unfortunately this will require some specialty tools and most people don't just have them in the garage. The unit definitely has freon in it or used to. These types of unit never tend to have valve you can add refrigerant through so someone must add them. I would try to check with a local HVAC company. Sorry about the bad news.

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.

Haier ea3069 - we can't turn the temperature down


If you can't lower the programmed temperature even with the buttons on the case then the control board of the unit has failed and it will have to be replaced.
If the unit can be programmed but it doesn't generates cold air or not enough to cool the room then the freon circuit has got a leak and the freon is escaping reducing the efficiency of the unit. The unit will have to be dismantled, the leak identified and soldered, and the circuit refilled.
You must call a certified repairman, they are the only ones with the necessary tools to do the job. In the mean time disconnect the unit from the mains or the compressor might overheat and fry, killing the unit.

Need to add 'freon' to my samsung window unit.


Hello, in order to add freon to a window unit you must add a piercing valve to then low side of the system. The valve mounts to the suction line and allows you to connect your gauges and add freon. Here is a link to where you can purchase piering valves. http://www.hvacr-tools.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=HVACR&Product_Code=BPV31&Category_Code=VALVES

Lower unit does not cool


check for conditioned space fan not running. Does top cool and not the lower or are both not cooling properly. If fan is running, it could either be that the thermostat is not set low enough, evap is frozen up, the unit is low on freon, the compressor is not running. Start checking as much as you can and let me know.

Unit not freezing , evaporator fan wont run


If this is a Bev-Air, don't think the door switch will control the fan. At the evap, there is a temp sensor called a fan delay. When unit goes into defrost mode, this warms up. Some also serve a dual purpose. It will terminate the defrost cycle at a certain temp., say 51 degrees or so, at the evap. Anyway, when unit comes out of defrost, it keeps the fan off so it allows the evap to cool quicker and to prevent circulating warm air. This could be your problem. Not a hard fix but they can be a pain sometimes. Outside chance that the unit is low on refrigerant (freon). This will not let the evap get cold enough to trip the sensor back into position to turn the fan on. Good Luck. Restaurant Parts and More carry alot of Bev-Air stuff. 1-888-814-1110. Ask for Rick
