    R134a or R600a?


    Does anyone know the refrigerant that Fisher&Paykel's fridges use? The models are mostly from 2006-2009 and I'm thinking it's either R134a or R600a.

    Or anybody knows if there's some kind of refrigerant database for all refrigerator brand models? (like LG, Panasonic, etc)

    Oh and I forgot to add, are both R134a and R600a CFC free refrigerants?

    Are there any details on the compressor data plate such as gas or model number?

    They're starting to take it as a challenge...

    BASIC MAINTENANCE. If it doesn't move and it should then use WD40. If it moves but it shouldn't then use Duct Tape.

    All F & P fridges built in Australia use R134a.

    Data label should be bottom rh side of cabinet face.
    Open lower door to view.

    should be 134A
