Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

My suggestion is to remove the compressor, drier, orifice tube. Use a flushing machine to flush the lines, condenser, and evaporator forward and backwards with chemicals and air to remove all freon, oil and debris. Once done make sure its all clean and dry. Then replace with new the orifice, compressor, and drier and add the required amount of oil to the drier and compressor Replace all O-rings. Pull a vacuum on the system for 30 minutes. It should hold for at least an hour. If it works then recharge and test.

Hello again Chris here,

  • I am contacting you because the post has not been closed out/completed.
  • It appears you were not pleased with my help.
  • If more assistance is needed, reply and let me know, also let me know what it is you're needing to be pleased.
  • This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. When a post times out, that means it's no longer on my active list (you reply and I never know it.)
  • You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, and I do not want you to leave having paid for something that did not meet your wants/needs and myself not receiving a feedback selection from yourself.

Thanks Chris
