Thanks for all the suggestions. I don't have any freon and
wouldn't know how to put it in if I did. I had a 30 pound bottle of
R12, used it for years to top off the units in our two vehicles.
Sold it last year - half gone, for three times what I paid for the
I am good with tools, mechanics, etc, but don't know a darn thing
about refridgeration so don't have any confidence in trying
anything. Don't know where the the condenser coills are located,
but will try to find them.
Other than that, I think it is time to junk it and get another
if I can find something on Craigslist.
Thanks again for the info.
