I've had a Cool Tech 34288 4 years now. Always kept

Customer Question

I've had a Cool Tech 34288 for about 4 years now. Always kept up with the filters and oil changes. Today we had a "High Pressure" message after recovering abou 3 ozs from a vehicle, when gauges were reading zero on the high side and -28 on the low side. We could hear air hissing and smell a fishy type of odor. Brought the vehicle back up to 3lbs charge, A/c didn't work. So we recovered it back out. Took an extremely long time. Next vehicle charged fine, however, clearing the hoses took almost an hour, and still the hissing sounds off and on. We use this machine multiple times daily. Anything we can do to fix it?

I've already had a local company come over and fix the machine. I need Just Answer to refund my money.
