It will probably be R 134A gas. Tell me the Model # of compressor and I'll tell you the type of gas! It will be different from charging a car. Beverage air are usually critical charge. This means you have to weigh the exact amount of freon in that is listed on the nameplate of the unit. (next to the charge info will be the freon type) I can ball park it by pressures, I would not recommend you try that. ;)

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

Posted on May 02, 2009

  • If the unit is only one year old you should use R134a. The refrigerant charge should be put in by weight only. If you go by pressure you will likely be wrong and have further problems. The proper method is to have unit in vacuum and weigh refrigerant in on high side in liquid form (turn bottle upside down). Using a scale weigh in the amount listed on the data plate. If the system has be opened you should also install a new drier. Hope this helps. By the way, Beverage air has a good warranty, if the unit is less than a year it should be covered.

How do I recharge a 15 yr old Freezer Model #UL2494ECW8

U have to buy and install a shrader valve on the low side going to the compressor. Correct refrigerant charge is critical and you need to carefully measure and introduce the correct amount of freon, preferably with a refrigeration scale.

Freezer not freezing acting like refrigerator

Hi,
Either the thermostat went bad or the refrigeration system has a leak and you are low on freon....that will also cause poor cooling..

It is blowing hot air!

http://www.beverage-air.com/Main.aspx?pid=74&tab=75
I went to this web site and found several manuals on your unit. check it out.
Hope this is what you are looking for.
Be sure that the condenser on the back of the unit is clean and that the unit is not pushed back up against anything that can block air flow around the condenser.
Start there. If you need more, let me know.

Evap fan will not come on,jumped out the fan control fan comes on

Since this is a freezer, it should have a defrost terminator/ fan delay. This could have gone bad or you may have a refrigeration problem. Such as low on freon due to a leak. Need more info, I'll explain in detail. Let me know. Will Be more than happy to.

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
