Hello, freon should be charged by a hvac technician with a epa card. But the way you charge it in is hook up the manifold gauges to the unit tjen take the yellow and hook it up to your refrigerant bottle. If this is a R-22 unit then you add vapor refrigerant to the low side of the system untill your superheat is correct if it is a fixed orifice system, however if it is a txv system then you chek the subooling. If it is a 410a system then the same principle applies however you flip the cylinder upside down and add liquid refrigerant through the low side a little at a time here is a link that shows you proper charging methods http://www.air-conditioning-and-refrigeration-guide.com/charging-air-conditioning-systems.html.

Where in Southern California can I get it recharged with freon?


Generally portable a/c units are not recharged because they do not contain a service port like a home or auto a/c unit does. At the factory they charge the unit crimp the tube then weld it closed. And no one can service freon unless then can vacuum recover it.

I have a Fredders A3X05F2A-J model and was wondering how to recharge the unit, if possible? If so where could i pick up a recharge kit?


I don't beleive there is a DIY kit for recharging window air conditioners. At least not one, that would be reasonably affordable (less than $100.00) . Now, if you have a friend who's in the auto repair business and as part of his work, he recharges automobile AC compressors, he may can help you. As he would have the knowledge to balance the high and low sides of the compressor. As well as evacuate and capture any freon that's left in the system. As freon has be banded by the EPA. R134a is now the refrigerant used in AC compressors. By now, I guess you figured out, that recharging the system is not necessarily a DIY project. It's best left to the pros.

Hope this was of hep to you and thanks for choosing fixture.

How do i add freon to fedders model # A6X05F2B


you dont!!! Only an EPA certified technician can do this. Besides that this is window unit and therefore it is a sealed unit not meant to be recharged. Some newer models allow for this but not this Federers. It probably just needs a good coil cleaning is all, if its losing refrigerant than it has major problems not worth fixing---buy a new one thats more efficient---the energy savings will pay for the unit.

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
