Thanks for the reply.  The car AC recharge (or top-off) cylinders use 134a.  I don't have one, but here is a link to a few available options: http://www.id-usa.com/how_to_recharging.asp

A new fridge is an option, but the one I have is nicely built in and still in good shape.

Looks like a new evaporator + compressor kit will run about $500 for the fridge, so it's probably similar for the freezer.  Do you have any idea what I would be looking at in terms of installation?  It probably depends on the location, but I'm in a high-cost area near San Francisco, if it helps.
