Vintage Frigidaire – Refrigerator Repair

Anonymous asked 4 years ago

How do I recharge Meter Miser compressor?

I have a vintage Frigidaire (1938 – 1948) refrigerator.  The temperature keeps dropping to well below freezing, even if the thermostat is set to “Defrost”.  From what I’ve read online, it seems that being low on refrigerant could cause this.  So my question is two-fold.

a) does this seem like an accurate diagnosis?

b) if so, how do I recharge the compressor?  It is my understanding that this compressor uses R114 refrigerant.  Is this still available?Thank you in advance for your assistance.
