Anyone know the lowside pressure of an Engel portable fridge running on R134a. Running from startup.

Cant find any info from Engel as they want you to have it serviced by them. Had a gas leak with I have repaired but no idea on the charge or pressure.

It's the fridge/freezer model.

Thanks

In answer to my own question, to share with others..

After playing around with the suction pressures, charging it squirt at a time and watching the cabinet temp, the pressure needs to be around 5psi, maybe a little less. So not very high in order to get the low temperature.

feel free to add any input should anyone have any.

thanks
