My frigerator is low on freon and I want to know how to put the freon in it beverage air soda cooler
To put Freon into your Beverage Air frigerator, here's the step-by-step procedure you should follow:
I have a major problem here. If you don't know how to add refrigerant, How do you know it is low. Today's coolers are totally sealed at the factory and very rarely have to be opened for gauge tapping. And according to the EPA they need to be kept sealed. R-134 does not bleed through the copper at the molecular level like R-12 did.
If your cooler is just not cooling correctly, You first need to troubleshoot why. Not make a assumption of low refrigerant. Is the evaporator coil iced up? Very common problem form a door being left ajar, a pan of steaming product set inside or bad gaskets on a humid day. Are the fans running AND moving air? Blocked coils are the most common problem with coolers. Is the in side (high side) of the condenser coil hot? Is the compressor running? Is the compressor suction line cool? Is the compressor warm or hot?
All these questions have to be answered before any tech would go into a system to check the charge. And if it is low, one is mandated to repair the leak prior to recharging.
Oh, and just in case you think you can use automotive refrigerant, Caution. They are not the same. The automotive side uses a different lubricant and they add some to the small cans for cars. It will react with your lubricant and cause a cap tube blockage at a minimum.
