Fucking with Fridges~

Recommended Posts

Got a vintage (1970's) fridge that is slowly dying.  I really do not want to replace it with some modern POS, as this thing is huge, and has a giant herm that still wants to run.

So.

My plan is to evac the system, check for leaks, then service it with R-134.

Any of youall done  this kind of stuff before, and if so, how'd it work?

I really only understand fridges on a theoretical basis.  Don't really have practical experience.

It sounds like most of the time they break because the coolant leaks, rather than the compressor breaking.
