I picked up a cheap (free!) full height, glass doored drinks chiller a couple of weeks ago. Fan was running but not getting cold. Had a local chap out who tested for leaks (none) and regassed. I ran it for a week, turned it off for a week as not needed, turned back on and same problem so guessing it needs regassing again. Clearly not realistic to do this every time I need it and reckon it must have a leak so will prob just scrap it, which I'm hacked off about as cost £90 in call out an valve/gas etc to sort.
Chap who did the work is coming back to take another look but is basically saying there is no leak and it's my fault for not running it none stop... Any truth? My mate's got similar and he just turns it on on demand. I don't need it full time, maybe a couple of times a month at the minute, but when I want it I need it to be reliable.
Any thoughts from those who know about these things??
