One moment while I get some information for you!

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 2 months ago.

The exact ounces and freon are listed right on the tag on the unit. Open the door and check the frame edge or interior top walls or ceiling for the tag and it is listed right on there. If you cannot find it let me know.

All I ask is please select the ***5 STAR RATING*** using the link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am credited through the site, tips are appreciated.

No references are on the tag. Only the dimensions of the unit itself.

That unit calls for a 6.5 OZ charge

What does that call for on the pressure gauge? How many pounds on the pressure gauge?

0-5PSI on the suction side when charged.
