Customer: replied 1 year ago.
now if I want to call you, that cost me another $26! Are you kidding? I just paid $51 and have nothing!
Expert:  Wayne replied 1 year ago.


I am a independent contractor work from home JA does the billing

It is just a deposit

but you have 2 questions open, need to stick to just this one

You need to put full set of gauges on the comperssor

need to see what the head pressure is doing

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
That doesn't help. Most farmers do not own gauges for air compressor units. Might as well haul it to the mechanic which is what I was trying to avoid.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Was hoping you could tell me some simple options to test out before taking it to the shop
Expert:  Wayne replied 1 year ago.


The only simple thing to do is

recover the freon, empty the system

and then add 2.50 Lbs of R 134a freon

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no way to test the thermostat?
Expert:  Wayne replied 1 year ago.


It would not be the Thermostat causing that

I have worked on A/C for 34+ years
