Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! If you charged it and it gets hot and still does not cool, there is other trouble than just the poor connection at the compressor. I would certainly recommend replacing the filter drier and check to be sure that the vacuum can be drawn through the capillary tube as you may have a restriction. If the vacuum will draw through that cap tube, I would vacuum it down good and recharge and see what happens. If it is new, it is most likely worth repairing if you got it for nothing. Of course, if it is still under warranty, you will void any warranty if you repair it yourself.
