Just got my gauges back... A few ounces (OK more than a few) of R22
and I'm up an running! Man, it's cold up here. And to think, some
fools spent a whole weekend taking a class to get "licensed, insured,
As I explained on the private e-mail you cluttered my in-box with;
OK, so if it was done right, what was your SST and your superheat?? If you
don't know what it is, then it wasn't done correctly.
If it was so easy, everybody would be doing it, don't you think??
You can screw with your R-22 system all you want, and waste all the R-22 you
want, but in just 2 1/2 years, the price is going to be a whole lot higher
to gas that system up.

Before you get too comfortable with your "Man, it's cold up here.", go
check your variables are an isosceles triangle at Space Temperature.

It is a compressor fault, weak pumping (compression) check the

you stop the compressor the discharge pressure should not drop below
350psi secondly it could also be due to clogged condensor, clean
condensor by using condensor cleaning liquid and water pressure.
Hope this helps
Even if there's no refrigerant in the system? (or low on same?)
Even after the gas on the high side cools and equalizes with the low side?
My compressors are a bit, um, "hard starting" under that much head. Maybe
you have really good "hard start" kits.
With our customers, it's usually the evaporator that gets its fins linted
up... but I guess it could be fifteen years of dead lizards in there, so
yeah... just put it on full-strength from the jug, and let it soak for at
least an hour; put on plenty -- maybe even two or three applications. Then
use a hard stream of water... pressure washer is even better. Gets it
