How to prevent refrigerator gas leakage?

The average refrigerator repair cost is between $200 to $400. In European countries, the regular cost of labor for each repair can be as high as $200.

Being in the commercial refrigerator industry for more than 15 years, the average cost and industrial operation are pretty much clear. For a single unit of a commercial refrigerated merchandiser, factories in major manufacture countries like China, India, and Turkey have export prices from $100 to $400. The price can be surprisingly low as the industry competition is increasingly fierce. In this case, the repair cost can often be higher than the fridge itself. Wholesalers and distributors have no option but to replace the fridge directly, meanwhile facing the high repair cost.


When the units being arrived at clients’ warehouses or are displayed in a retail shop, it is hard to avoid minor or major quality issues, such as non-cooing, frosting, glass broken, etc. In which, freon leakage is one common faulty that causes non-cooling or unsatisfied temperature.


Five Signs Your Refrigerator is Leaking Freon

  • Your food feels warm
  • The motor is constantly running
  • High electricity bills
  • Not cooling at all
  • Odd smells of chemicals


When you see the above signs, then it is time to call a repair person in.

Avoiding quality issues like gas leakage in manufacture is being super important to build a good company representation and save money overall. 


Then the question will be: how to avoid gas leakage?


Meisda, being super careful about the product quality, strictly uses a refrigerant leak detection system at a global standard.


  1. INFICON HLD6000 Refrigerant Leak Detector

The German-made detector is being used for the final product refrigerant leak detection. With this detection, we detect refrigerants includes, R600a and R290. Annual gas leakage as small as 0.5g (0.014 oz) can be detected within 1 second. Every single unit before shipping will be detected individually.

2.100% product plug-in test

Before packaging, every unit will be done with a digital plug-in test. Whether if there is non-cooling or bad temperature, data accordingly will be shown immediately. Then repairing and re-detection will be done afterward.

With these 2 major defections, products(countertop coolerupright coolercountertop freezerupright freezermobile cooler) being shipped from Meisda factory are promised to have a faulty rate below the industrial average.
