Hello,

I replaced compressor on this unit a few weeks back along with a new dryer. Everything seemed fined until now. The evaporater seems to have a restriction.I've replaced the dryer a second time, purge with nitrogen and evacuated again.
Still no help. I've attached a picture of evaporater. Is the restriction from capillary tube or something on down in tthe evapoarter coils?
Does the picture tell you anything? Any thoughts or suggestions on removing restriction?

Thanks Stan

Hey thanks for response,

The compressor was completely lock up. The low side pressure ends up in a -10psi vacumn. Whats funny is the presssures equalize well with in the 10min limit.
