    Charging a freezer properly

    Can anyone give a refresher in unit charging.
    Working on a truck freezer 404a, describe the details of saturation etc.

    In your situation...you'd probably be best off charging by weight per the name plate.

    Why don't you start by telling us what you think you know about charging a system?

    I never claim to know anything about anything. That way I'll never be held responsible

    I've found this to be a much better guideline to charging a system with a headmaster

    In my experience, I have found it best to charge a unit using

    My manifold hoses.

    It was just too difficult trying to pour refrigerant into the charging hole.

    The dipstick to make sure the oil level is full?
