Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.
I will do my best to assist you
tell me the pressures on the low and high side while the ompressor is on
i understand it blows the valve,,but,,how much psi is on the low and high sides?
that is way too much...what is the ambient temperature where you are?
ok,,i want you to let freon out of the low side,,,we want it at around 50psi with the compressor running
the compressor does engage,,doesnt it?
are you there?
does the compressor kick on,,and while the compressor is on,,the pressure is still above 100psi?
do you have a manifold gauge set?
let the pressure down to 50psi with the compressor on...if the compressor kicks off or it doesnt cool..this tells me the high and the low sides are equalizing
i would like to have the high reading as well as the low
if the pressure is equalizing to the low,,the new compressor is bad,and you will need to replace it again
was the condenser fine?
ok,,can you blow compressed air through the condenser?and the evaporator core?
to make sure they arent clogged
before you put it back together
if they are clear there is absolutely no reason for it not to work if the compressor is good,,the low side shouldnt never get over 60psi
no...can you blow though the system?
you replaced the dryer and the expansion valve,,right?
