Hello, thanks for letting us answer your questions. We appreciate your business!

Appl-Tech :


Appl-Tech :

Are you just charging the system now, or has i been running for a while?

Customer : Thank you.helloi am in the process.yes.
Appl-Tech :

if you do not have a charging cylinder or a scale you can charge by sight and pressure

Appl-Tech :

You can start off by charging until you get about 8-10 psi on the low side. Then watch the frost line on the evaporator coil to make sure that it does not frost back to the compressor. If that happens, you will need to bleed off some of the gas until the frost line recedes back into the cabinet.

Customer : Thank you.snd what psi pressure do you come up with?
Appl-Tech :

When the freezer gets cold enough, your should be operating at around 0-3psi

Appl-Tech :

Keep monitoring that the frost does not come out of cabinet back to compressor
