Take it to a professional if you do not have the proper tools. Just because it stopped working, does not mean you are low of freon. There can be a lot of different issues causing this.

I aggree with this. But I would say for the cost of about 10 bucks. You can get the can of R-134 almost anywhere. It comes with the gauge. You screw it on the low pressure side. Just follow the directions. If it does not cure your problem then seek a professional.

this isnt always true. if you jump that switch it will kick the compressor on regardless of amount of Freon (even if system is empty...). I would hook a set of gauges up and look at pressure before jumping the switch..

sorry I havn't got to reply guys, my computer was down for awhile. But Dirk, i did take it to a shop, they hooked up the gauges and it showed nothing, so we gave it a few cans of freon and looked for leaks, we didnt see or hear any so we let it run. It has been doing fine for now. Thanks for the help guys.

Willyp, Sorry to here that. I just replaced my compressor for the 5th time. So I feel your pain.

This time though, I found a plug in my evaporator . Flushed it out and now it's colder then ever.

Do you know what the problem is?
