Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
It is normal for the compressor to cycle off and on if the system is low on freon. Nor pressure readings on a full system needs to be right at 30 to 35 PSI on the low side and 300 to 225 PSI on the high side with the compressor running. I would also make sure the new belt is tight. Check you pressure reading for me and post back and we can work from there.
