Tool..Its not putting out cold air, just slightly cool..deg…

Customer Question
I have a tool truck...
I have a tool truck with a Model #EM-6, S/N #15-005245. It's not putting out cold air, just slightly cool. It has been about 90-95 deg. in TN lately. I had the freon checked and the low side keeps bouncing slightly on Zero. The high side is pegged at 150. Seems to be a restriction on the low side. I was told that the condenser can may have a broken bag and the pellets may have plugged the expansion valve. Any ideas???
