Re: Adler Barbour Cold Machine troubleshooting

My Adler /Barbour freezer system I believe has a leak as I am losing the 134a . The problem is we believe
the leak is in an inaccessible area. Is there a technique for fixing the leak? The technician is not very
familiar with the boat system.

Re: Adler Barbour Cold Machine troubleshooting

Wow! Talk about dredging up old threads!

There is a product out there that some guys use called "Easy Seal". Some guys swear by it. I prefer to actually find and repair the leak, but I have used it a couple of times in situations where conventional methods were not practical, and the alternative is replacing the unit. In both cases the leak was sealed and the units worked long after.

You probably have a leak in the line due to chafing on a hard surface, or some salt water has corroded through the thin wall aluminum line. I've brazed small holes, but is only a temporary fix. A new evaporator unit will be cheaper then a refrigerator techs time. Also check the connection between compressor and evaprator fittings..they do come loose...
