Question and Answers

Q:

48 inch kitchenaid refrigerator has 134a refrigerant and is low on freon. Can a can of 134a with stop be added to this system at the valve. Model # KSSP48QFS05.

A:

You pose an excellent question. Most times we encourage that a train technician handle those kinds of jobs but you might have back-ground experience. I have provided a link below that will discuss the need for trained personal to do the repair. I will also forward your question to an expert who will investigate the matter further and get back to you. You will hear from them within two business days if not sooner. Until you hear from us, have a nice day.

Thank you for your question. I understand your concern about a low refrigerant charge. No, it's not recommended, to add this type of refrigerant to the system and it's possible that it could void the warranty, if there is any warranty left. It's been found that in many cases, when this type of refrigerant with the stop leak is added, it clogs up the system. I strongly recommend having a technician check and repair this system if possible. I hope this will help you.
