What is the gas pressure on both compressors on subzero 321

The pressure of the refrigerant in the systems vary depending on the temperature of the refrigerant gas and the type of gas used. So this is a question that can't be answered without a lot of additional information.

Not cooling, compressor is running but both lines are warm. fan is running also.

Check refrigerant pressure, if below 0psi (hg), need refrigerant, if not work before you charge up to 1.8 to 3 psi may be you has an escpape in the condensor internal lines, you can do this with 3 in 1 valve to refill and check the low pressure side

Head pressure high; suction pressure low. Unit not cooling

Good day,
It's a restriction.
It could be in the liquid line dryer, cap tube as well as the condenser. If it's a R134A system, it's a common problem.

In either case, the repairs can become extensive, with the factory when under warranty, authorizing, replacing the dryer, cap tube,
condenser, and many times the compressor.

I am trying to refill the coolant

PLEASE NOTE This job should be left to a expert One line is HIGH pressure the other is low pressure and depending what freon is used could be dangerous the reason you can not find the port is that there is no service port service personal has to install one which is pinholed by the adapter the line is then filled from that point

Whats the working pressure of R134a in refrigerator

That question does not have a simple answer. The pressure is directly related to the temperature. You can go on line and get a table showing the pressure vs temperature. I would think 0 is a good starting point for the return temperature. High is also related to temperature. I would expect the high to be about 135 but that depend on ambient etc. You may have to have a licence to tap the refrigeration system and purchase gas depending on your locaton.
Good Luck,

Ineed to know the horsepower rating for the tpe1370yxa thanks

That looks to be a Tecumseh R134a compressor near 700 BTUs, close to 1/4 HP, rated at low pressure (-10 degrees F evaporator temperature)

(Frigidair refrigerator R134a system) 3 months after a new compressor was installed it stopped cooling, it leaked. I found and repaired the leak. Then bought some automotive R134a it had dye,conditioner,...

The stop leak probably stopped up your cap tube system and the filter drier.You can try by replacing the filter drier, vacuum the system to 500 microns and recharge.The automotive 134a is the same as any other 134a.

Freezer not working but motor working

hi! that symptom correspond hizzing sound on evaporator.factors are to be check before you can diagnose insusfficent cooling effect check your actual opearating current using clamp ammeter,set to amperes rating,clamp to one line source take thereading,compare reading on the tag locate at the backside of freezer there is rated ampers indicated.if you got low amper rating your system is under charge,thats the time you recharge your system by qualified ref/ac technician.but if you got high amper rating your filter need to replace as well as your refrigerant.check also the high side pressure by service pressure gauge manifold or the compressor discharge pressure if can compress to 300 to 500 psig.if not your compressor has loose compression.compressor is worn out.

Ice maker too slow

Ice makers will only drop cubes about every two hours. There is nothing you can do to speed it up. However, if you have low water pressure to the fridge, then you will have slow production. You need a minimum of 30-40 pounds (constant) of water pressure to the fridge for the ice maker to work properly. Things I typically see causing low pressure are: Self piercing saddle valves on the water line (need drill type), and reverse osmosis systems connected to the fridge. In some rare cases a very old water filter or limed up supply line.

Can you add 134a freon to a Dehumidifier?

why do you want to put gas into your dehumidifier????????. this only needs to be done if there has been a leak and in that case you need to cure the leak first. you should use a vac pump as well to clear the charging line of gas. ideally, you should degas the appliance first and charge with the correct amount of gas.. the type of gas you need should be on the rating plate and is not necessarily r134a. gas goes in on the low pressure side and for this you can use either the charging stub (piece of pipe which is blanked off) or the low pressure pipe which is the larger diameter pipe of the other two. any refrigeration needs the correct amount of the correct gas.
