Looks like it is a tad low might need an ounce or 2 at the most.

by the way it's not as old as I first thought, it just LOOKS old. It was made in 1991


The model/serial number tag will also tell you what type of refrigerant it needs.
If it's as old as you think I would guess the tag is going to say it uses R-12 Refrigerant.


R-12 refrigerant was phase out years ago and it no longer available.
Hope you find our website helpful.

Just bought a brand new Frigidaire upright manual defrost 14.1 cubit foot freezer from Lowes.

Should I purchase the extended warranty for this freezer? The reviews on the Lowes website for this item are not so good to say the least.

Thanks in advance.

Buying an extended warranty would be a waste of money. My opinion.
