Freon, DuPont R22 (Dichlorodifluoromethane) is described in the MSDS as having a "slight ethereal" odor. I cannot say that I have noticed any odor from any systems that I have accidentally dumped. Then, again, I don't stick around to sniff it and I have never dumped a system in an enclosed space.
If you have ever smelled chloroform, it is also described as having an "ethereal" odor. It is best not to sniff that either.
Freon is odorless; you cannot smell it.
Freon is odorless, but it is possible to smell the refrigerant oil that could also be leaking.
Freon mixed with refrigerate oil will have a slight smell.................
There is no smell, unless somebody has used something like 22a freon which is actually propane and may have a sulphur smell
R134a Freon is an oxymoron, Freon is R12 but the answer is yes, a subtle 'sweetish' odor
my car a/c smells like freon? Type your answer here...
Freon is odorless. If you're getting a chemical type smell, it's probably anti-freeze leaking from your fridge.
Chlorofluorocarbon smells like Freon
Freon is odorless. The oil in the refrigerant system does have a distinct aroma.Freon is odorless. The oil in the refrigerant system does have a distinct aroma.
Odorless. What you are smelling is antifreeze, leaking from the heater core in your car. I DISAGREE: Freon smells a bit like ether and should not be inhaled. Freon is a gas that does not have a color or smell, however, you should NOT breathe it. More Information on Freon Below: (It CAN have an Odor, and is Dangerous in enclosed spaces!) http://www.ehow.com/list_7631527_symptoms-freon-leak.html http://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/eh/chemfs/fs/Freons.htm http://www.epa.gov/chemfact/f_freon.txt
Since you are aware of what freon smells like , and you must know what it is used for , there is only one system in an auto that uses it.
Freon is odorless because it is a combination of gas and oil. However, many believe it can be detected by a sweet smelling fragrant in the air.
Freon R134 is a gas used to charge A/C units. It does not have a smell or color. ...Actually the proper name is not FREON® which is a DuPont trademark brand of HCFC based refrigerants, like FREON® 22. The actual R-134a DuPont Brand name is Suva® 134a... and R-134a DOES have an odour, it is a difficult to detect, "sweet , ether-like" odour.
Is it gas or Freon that you are smelling?
you can unplug the refrigerator and let it air out for a couple of hours. you also could put a box of backing soda. the Baking soda should absorb the smell
A smell inside is usually a bad evaporator coil.
The rubbing alcohol smell can indicate a Freon leak. The smell can also indicate a plugged drain tube. There is natural condensation that needs to drain away from the air conditioning compressor.
if its ac it could be freon if its heat could be carbon monoxide.
Is r-22 Freon compatible with r-134a freon?
Contains no Freon. Freon was banned beginning in 1996.
Freon is DuPont's trade name. There are 2 types of Freon, Freon-11 is trichlorofluoromethane, while Freon-12 is dichlorodifluoromethane. All types of Freon have been banned from production since 1996. Refrigerants are manmade compounds not Elements
When the fridge is not cooling due to freon leak or freon restriction.
Home freon and R-12 freon for vehicles (yes) but not R134a freon which you can get at any autozone..................
There is many different types of Freon. If the freon that you are trying to use is R-22 then you have to have a EPA certification to handle that freon. This freon is considered ozone depleteing. Now there is freon out there that is not ozone depleting like the freon in cars made after 1993. That is called R-134a which is sold everywhere even in Wal-Mart.
