Customer Question
I'm working a walkin fridge...
I'm working a walkin fridge. The...
I'm working a walkin fridge. The outdoor unit is cycling on and off continually every few minutes. The indoor evaportor fan is not running and the lines are not getting cold. I checked the high side and am only getting 100 psi.
It doesn't have a sight glass.
I believe it has a leak and islow on freon. I tried charging liquid on the high side but it will only take about 10 ounces of 404a.
If its low on freon will it cycle on and off like its doing and whats the correct way to re charge this system? Its been a while since I've worked on one of these unitsThanks

Sorry, David, I am not familiar with these style commercial coolers. I will see if another may be, though.
