Howdy all
Ive got a 39 Frigidaire mod # is 540033 with R 114 refrigerant. Is R 114 at all available anymore, is there a suitable replacement or am i doomed for a rebuild if the system goes down ? It works OK now but id rather stay ahead of the game as age seems to make things a lot worse, except for SN Celebration Ale

Thanks DurhamAppliance. Seems R 124 and 234fa are close as replacements data sheets indicates but I don't know if the meter miser can handle it. Does anyone have experience with this and if so, would it require lubricant change.

a Google search reveals R114 is still available.
It also seems 236fa is a HFC, zero depletion potential refrigerant with properties very similar to R114.
but both may only be available in 30lb cylinders
prices seems about the same for R12, R114, and 236fa

Thanks. good news albeit 50 lb on offer in the link is a little hefty in volume and $ for a single fridge. Was probably never as popular as R12, hence no 12 ounce cans on the market. ill keep searching. Any comments on meter miser and replacement gas ?
