I have an ice machine that uses R12.I have found a productm called Hotshot i think its 414B works well
OEM refrigerant which came installed in 1993 was Freon R12. I suggest you convert it to R134a if it has not already been converted. R12 is far to expensive.
It came with R12 (Freon). Look for a sticker on the unit, as it may have been converted. If not convert it to R134a. My advice, is, take it to a professional.
Unless your system has been convert to take R-134a you would need 25oz of R-12. If your system has been convert to R-134a you would use 20oz to 21.25oz of R-134a.
It depends on the year of the truck. The old type of freon was phased out. If its an older truck it would have been R-12. But R-12 is not avalible, you will have to convert it to R-134a. Newer trucks are R-134a.
It contains no R12 Freon. Freon has not been used for years.
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
Unless it has been converted over to R134 it came with R12. I suggest you convert it to R134a. R12 is very expensive.
Freon (R12) has not been installed in any vehicle since 1995.
Freon (R12) has not been installed or produced since 1995.
The 2001 Ford Explorer A/C unit does not contain Freon (R12). Freon has not been used since 1995.
There is only one type of freon, but before we go further, freon has been banned due to it's hazardousness to the environment.
The original refrigerant installed at the factory in 1973 was R12 (Freon). If it has not been converted to R134a, I suggest you convert it now, if it is leaking and needs repair. R12 is no longer in production and the dwindling supply is very expensive. Much cheaper to convert it to R134a.
YOU don't! If your system is R12 (freon)it should ONLY be serviced by a professional. The way to determine is if you have quick-couple service fittings, it is 134A (not freon) equipped, if it has threaded service fittings, it is R12 (freon) equipped. When you take the vehicle to a professional, he will convert your R12 system (if it is so equipped) to 134A. R12 (freon) has not been manufactured since 1995 by law (Montreal Accord) and it is VERY hard to find. A license is required to purchase R12 and it may not be legal to sell in your state. Mark---Raleigh, NC Actually Freon is a registered trade name or trademark for E. I. DuPont. It is not strictly R-12. R-134a is commonly called Freon.
Freon (R12) is no longer in production, and by law has not been used in any vehicle since 1995.
The 2002 Saturn does not use "Freon" since Freon was manufactured by DuPont. Most vehicles since mid 1990's have been using 134A refrigerant.
Check the low and high pressure switches, the AC fuse, and relay. Any of these can cause the AC to not get power to the clutch as if the freon is too low.
It originally came with Freon (R12). Unless it has been converted then it will still contains R12. I suggest you have it converted to R134a, as Freon is so very expensive and hard to find.
Does not contain any Freon (R12). Freon was banned and has not been installed in any vehicle since 1995. there is freon in a 2000 durango,its in the air conditioner line,and it takes about 3 to 5 cans to fill it depending on how much is in it. you can buy everything you need to fill it up at walmart.
BY "freon" do you mean R-12? If so then the answer is no. The system uses 134A refridgerant and does not need to be converted.
There are a few reasons your AC might not get very cold even though the Freon is fine. You could have a leak in your line.
r12 unless it has been converted to r134a
R12 unless it's been converted.
AnswerWhat year? There are two types for cars R12 for cars up to 1993 It no longer made and if anyone has any they can charge you $100 to $150 per pound The other is R134a for cars after 1993 An older car MUST be retrofitted to R134a for $100 to $500 depending on what needs to be replacedfreonthere is only one type of freon. It's freon it will work in any vehicleTotally incorrect! There are several different kinds of "FREON" freon is actually a trade name of Dupont for R22... Not an overall refrigerant. Anyone who has the certification to work on refrigeration equipment of any size will tell you it needs to be replaced with R134a. R12 is a refrigerant that destroys the ozone and has been banned by the EPA. FYI if anyone is caught putting R12 in for you they and you can be stuck with pretty hefty fines as well.
It came from the factory with R12 Freon. It may have been converted to R134a. If so there should be a sticker near the compressor. If it has not been converted, I suggest you do so, as the price of Freon is prohibitive.
Everything takes a different form of Freon. Drain the system if it has not been so prior then add R134a Freon into the coolant system.
