I can't find anything on this one.  It should say on the tag where the model # is what kind and how much freon.

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.

How to add Freon to a Air Conditioner or Refrigeration System


Adding Freon to an air conditioner or refrigeration system takes very specialized equipment and years of experience...it would be impossible and irresponsible of me to try to tell you how to do it through a computer.

Let me explain this further….
In small refrigeration systems such as you have in a refrigerator or a beveage cooler, the amount of freon in the system can often be measured in ounces of weight. Many times, just a few ounces. To get these charged correctly takes tons of experience and very finely tuned equipment. Just removing the hoses can release enough freon to make the difference between the system working or not working. Very sensitive scales are needed to weigh in the freon. To make sure the correct amount of freon is in the system, the system must be evacuated to a complete vacum. You need to have a special pump to do this.


To add to this, most small refrigeration systems are factory charged and sealed. They do not have access ports built into the system. To do anything to these system an access port must be correctly placed in the system for proper evacuation and charging. Then also add the the equation the fact that if you need to add freon to your system, where did the exsisting freon go? Finding and fixing very small leaks also takes sophisticated detection equipment.

The next problem is the many different types of freon that are used today. Some equipment has the type used, very clearly marked, but many do not. Only knowledge and experience can tell what type freon is in the system, and then it can be very difficult sometimes.

Air conditioning systems can be a bit more forgiving, but are getting more and more difficult to analyze and figure out exactly what is going on. The many types of refrigerant and variable speed compressors are making troubleshooting very difficult. Add temperature sensors and variable speed condenser fan motors into the mix and it becomes a nightmare.

Heat Pumps are very sensitive to either under or over charging. The only correct way to charge a heat pump is to evacuate the system and weigh in the correct charge.

Leaks in heat pumps or air conditioners are often very difficult to find, also. But finding a leak and fixing to correctly is the only way to achieve a successful repair of an air conditioning or heat pump unit.

So hopefully now you can see that refrigeration, air conditioning, and heat pump system charging is not something that can easily be done without the proper training and equipment.
Oh, and did I also mention that it is illegal to handle and repair any type of system the contains any type of refrigerant with out a refrigerant handling certification in the United States? Yes, and the although rarely anyone has been charged, it still is the law.

Please call for a certified repair technician to repair any refrigeration system and do not try to do it yourself.

How to put freon in my p12A


This should only be performed by a trained service technician. Not only is this potentially dangerous to the untrained person, but there is also a high potential to damage the equipment further if not charged properly.

The charge is to be metered into the suction line up stream of the compressor (charge liquid only if a blended refrigerant is used).

Most self contained unites will not have pressure taps to charge yourself, the would have to be added and soldered in aftermarket.

If in fact you had pressure taps, you will need a set of refrigeration gauges. Refrigerant needs to be weighed in, usually in ounces for a small unit. Charge is critical on these types of systems, just an ounce or two off can make a very big difference. You also need to know what type of refrigerant the unit requires, this is usually found on the name plate of the unit along or near the refrigerant charge the factory put in.

Also, if the unit entirely lost its charge, it would need to be evacuated to a deep vacuum to get all of the air out of the system. Without doing this you are wasting time and money as air in a system will create very big problems.

Furthermore, you need to make sure there is enough oil in the system, and without giving a reason or amount of refrigerant lost from the unit it is hard to give you an exact plan of action.

What type of freon is used to charge system.


Hi,
It should be R-134a, but you should check the rating plate for refrigerant type and for the proper weight of the charge...

The compressor is on but not cooling


The reason why its not cooling is because it needs to be charged with refrigerants. Try charging it with the compatible type of refrigerants.

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

Need ref charge in ozs suct press at temp for superba 42


Refrigeration charge in grams will be found on the label with the model number and serial number. The type of refrigerant is also on this label and the type of refrigerant which is more than likely 134a. You can weight the gas in or you can charge to 10psi, then run unit and adjust up or down as required.

My 2007 unit don't get cold enough. the maximum outlet air is 60 degrees


Ozone friendly refrigerants work on all the same principles as the old type of refrigerants. Outside ambient temperatures when higher will reflect on the cooling end of the system. Pressure and temperatures in any refrigerated device are directly related in all cases. Refrigerant charge to produce the proper output is critical in these units. Name plate is printed with a specific charge. If the charge is low the output will be less.
