Do you mean the freon charge? what is the normal lifespan of a charge? the unit is only 4 years old, but i do live in phoenix, and if has been very hot this summer, so i know the unit has been working overtime. thank you for your input. it is much appreciated.

Re: re: your response
The charge of freon should last forever.It should never leak out or never go bad.You may have a very very small leak that needs a few pounds every few years.Having a hot year will cause it to leak a little faster . good luck to ya!

Lithium batteries have a limited lifespan, typically 3 or 4 years, and their capacity between charges decreases over the years. To extend the lifetime of a battery it should be run completely flat after every few charges rather than topping it up. New batteries need to be charged several times and run flat under normal use before they gain their full capacity.
If the compressor is running and the fan under the unit I am afraid you need to buy a new fridge. This normally means its low on freon you could have a repairman add some but at 9 years old I would recommend a replacement. But make sure the compressor is running and not just the fan the compressor will hum.
Sounds like the Unit might be low on charge.But without correct readings not sure.
The new unit with 410 will actually cool better due to higher boiling point temp. of freon type.Poor air circulation could also cause problem.Such as dirty filter, too slow fan speed,dirty coil.Also could have obstruction in freon lines either at pump,in line set,or in coil.

If indeed your evaporator (indoor) coil is leaking, the best option IS replace it (it may not even BE repairable). If you live in the USA and your furnace is getting old, a new ultra high efficient SYSTEM that qualifies for the tax credit would probably be a better option (Obama will pay 30%).
Ive got an eos Rebel think its just over 4 years old for the last year its been used every weekend for several hours 300+ pics per weekend between 2 nights I found that recently where one battery would last a night the battery was running out midway through & also taking longer to charge afterwards
2 after market replacements cost me about £10 and things are back to normal
5 years is a pretty good lifespan for a battery so its probably just getting old
If the system powers on and runs normally on AC, and only the battery fails to charge, the 1st thing I would look at is the battery itself.
Batteries in portable systems have a lifespan of 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles before they normally fail. This is why portable batteries have a 1 year warranty regardless of the system warranty.
If replacing the battery does not resolve, then you most likely need a motherboard replacement.
