Been quite busy the last few weeks but I was able to find a place about 30 minutes from me that will work on the older R-12 systems. They close at 5 so I have to leave work early to make it up there in time. Hopefully things will be slower this week so I can slip out for a few hours.

I was able to get it into a shop to take a look at it. I will be needing a new compressor and dryer to the tune of $400+ for the complete job! Ouch. That's switching over to R134. I'm thinking I might be better off just scrapping it and getting a small fridge.

What would you do?

Why can't they keep the compressor and just put some r-12 in? Just look on craigslist. You can usually get a 12-16oz can for under $30. Stop by an hvac store. They will " know a guy" that can fix it.

From what the guy was telling me, the compressor is bad and they do not make the R-12 version anymore which means they have to switch everything over to R-134.

Have a R-12 compressor will check size this weekend. You cover shipping and it's yours. Checked and it will work for your needs, To bad your not heading down this way could swap it out and pull vacuum I don't have any mix gas for R-12 anymore.

That would be awesome if u have one that would fit. I really appreciate that. It would make it easier if I was heading that way, but this could put me one step closer to getting the kegerator back in action.
