Freezer 60 deg, refrig 60 deg, defrost heater cold, evaporator cool to touch, compressor discharge warm to touch, compressor running (by touch), evaporator fan on, condensor fan on.  I think it lost the refigerant charge.

No frost.  The coil is just cool to the touch, not cold.

Yep.  Probably a leak.  Yep, probably $$$$$.

Do u not put a tap valve on it to varify? U just tell the customer "I think it may be a gas leak".

if the Compressor is running and the Evaporator Coil is not getting frosted,

then either the Freon leaked out, somehow

OR the Compressor is bad..

either way $$$

Yeah $$$$ for my company. depending on the physical shape of the ref. itself,  I can usually sell a 5 to 6 hundred repair with a 1 year guarentee over the possible 1200 to as much as u could spend replacement.  I mean after all i know we all say,  "well, they dont build em like they use to".  And u said "freon", thats funny.
