How is freon charged?
Buy a kit at Wal-Mart or auto parts - comes with instructions
I was just charged 89 plus 155 to add two pounds of freon 22. Can I make a claim for this overcharged bill for adding freon 22?
It contains no Freon. Freon or R12 has been banned for years and is no longer used as a refrigrant. It more than likely is charged with R-134a. If it needs recharging then it has a leak and the leak needs to be repaired. It is illegal to recharge an A/C system without first repaiing the leak. Take it to a professional.
I have a 96 Ford Windstar and need to find the fuse or relay for the AC compressor clutch which and where please--system is charged?
Can a central AC unit hold 10lbs of freon when the sticker on the unit says factory charged 7.31lbs. The service tech charged me for 10 lbs and stands by his statement.?
No you can't purchase a condenser with out a certification. If the condenser did not have freon in them you might be able to but most all condensers come pre charged. you must have a epa license to purchase freon and even if you didn't have any education on air conditioning. what good would it do because the amount of freon in a condeser is not the exact amount needed in most cases. the system…
When the air conditioner on a 2002 Chevy S10 only blows warm air the low and high side reads 110 psi with engine on or off clutch apears to engage but no compression what could cause this?
well u probably are low on freon... r143a on most vehicles... it may ream psi but that could be due to air pressure as the freon ahs been evacuated... to properly charge ac system it needs to be vacumed and then charged with freon.. if clutch kicks in and there are no leaks in system then it is just a freon issue.
Why is your air blowing hot but your compressor is running and the freon is charged on a 1998 Tahoe?
there is no freon in a 2003 exterra, freon was outlawed in 1986. the refrigerant in any newer vehicle is r134a which can be purchased at any local auto parts store. if you are concerned as to wether or not your a/c system is properly charged or not you can also purchase a charging kit that comes with a quick connect adapter. the adapter has a color coded chart on the face of the gauge…
Most A/C's on Aveos need freon to get fixed. It is about $80 to get that done. If the freon is fully charged the next possible problem is that the low pressure switch is bad on the accululatordrier. Next look at the compressor relay. Last the compressor itself may be bad. You should have it looked at by a professional A/C mechanic because the system is under pressure and it takes special equipment to drain…
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.
A leak is the only way to loose volume of the freon charge. Freon is in a sealed system and it does not get used up. If your system is tight the freon will last forever. However a restriction in the freon lines can cause the freon pressure on the low side to look like it is low but the freon is really stacking up in the condensor.
