    I have to use r600a refrigerant on a mini fridge I got my bullet piercing valve today.The thing is the suction line is cut and crimped on the left side of the compressor but I still put the piercing valve on the leftover piece of copper line about 2 1/2 inches long with a rubber cap covering the tip.Do I need to switch to the right side to the other copper line which is untouched I believe its the high pressure line. I didn't pierce anything yet and I am waiting on my r600a refrigerant from ebay.I just don't want to waste my refrigerant doing it wrong,thank you.

    Thanks for the video!

    Giving this a shot on a Kenmore Elite (LG) dual evaporator refrigerator.
    I think the high side of the compressor is copper lines and the low side is aluminum.

    So I have 2 questions:
    1. Do you recommend piercing on the low side? (I would assume so, but not sure how much it matters)
    2. Will the BPV make it through the aluminum before snapping itself in half? (They don't seem very strong)

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Jonny! I suspect a leak and purchased a tube of AC Leak Freeze from Rectorseal. What would be the order of doing things in this case?… Do I still try to pull a vacuum first or would I inject the AC Leak Freeze and then pull a vacuum…and THEN add the refrigerant? And If I'm supposed to try pulling a vacuum first, what if it doesn't hold? Will air still be in the line? If that's the case, would AC Leak Freeze still be able to be sucked in? Just trying to figure things out and the correct order for this process. Thanks in advance for your reply.

  5. Stormy Weather says:

    If it’s a Frigidaire chances are the leak is in the Evaporator, using a vacuum pump will tell you you have a leak but if you have to add it you have a leak , there is no air in the system unless it’s totally empty. The only way to truly know if you have a leak though is to use a micron gauge.BTW those bullet valves are suppose to be removed, a pinch off tool and brazing is needed, your suction pressure should be around 9 pounds running !

  6. Toby Fernsler says:

    Overall well-done, however a big omission in this video is at 40s, picking where the fill-valve goes. It needs to be on the low-side (low-pressure, return to pump). That is where the video shows it (thicker pipe to pump) but the distinction is not made.

  7. Ketto Geerman says:

    You can't vacuum so shortly. A vacuumpump is not to remove the air. The function of a vacuumpump is to " Remove " the " Moisture " . A qualified technician knows is just putting a bandage on a wound. It is " Not " Healing the wound. Thats why there are so many people that are " Robbed " of their money !

    hi good day sir i " went to work and left my fridge open slightly . when i came back home the fridge was making a clicking sound. i watched some you tube videos and i realise that was the relay so i purchase the a startup kit and had my friend installed it . we plugged in the fridge and the clicking stop i left the plugged in for a while and it still was not freezing. i felt the compressor in the back and it felt hot he said the compressor not good. i am asking if the compressor need gassing up or how the fridge was left open for hours destroyed both the compressor and the relay.

  9. Bud E says:

    When I add refrigerant to my central AC, I have to bleed air out of the lines before adding the refrigerant. When using these piercing valves, there seems to be no way to do that. Do you just live with the small amount of air that will be trapped in the line and then introduced into the system?

    Thanks!

    iT IS SAID THAT SOME REFRIGERATOR COMPESSORS HAVE A MIXTURE WITH OIL IN IT, CAN YOU STILL USE THE R134A ? ALSO THE CAN R134A SAYS FOR "AUTO ONLY" IS THAT OK TO USE? NOTE IF I DON'T GET AN ANSWER FROM YOU, THOSE WHO VIEW THIS VIDEO MUST IGNORE IT FAST, IT COULD BE DANGEROUS FOR YOUR REFRIGERATOR TO TRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Tom Genn says:

    BUT MY FRIDGE IS ALREADY AT 40 DEGREES, BUT THAT IS NOT COLD ENOUGH TO KEEP FRESH FOOD FROM GOING BAD, IT MUST BE BETWEEN 35 AND 38 TO NOT WORRY ABOUT THE FOOD GOING BAD????
