Is the evaporator coil icing up? Dont know need to check....but only time I ever seen evap ice up is cause of a dirty filter....is there more causes for a iced up evap?
Is the condenser fan and evaporator fans both running up to speed? Cond fan is running up to speed and evap fan seems to be blowing good as well
Are indoor and outdoor coils clean and free of restrictions? outdoor yes -- indoor I would have to open plenum box....something I have no exp in doing.
Is the compressor capacitor reading full mfd? Dont know need to check...... is it possible for a cap to be bad and the compressor to run??
Are the wires on the contactor in good condition? yes--- no burned ends and connections are tight fitting also has new contatcor motor starter installed
Low side is only slightly low.
High side should be closer to 225psi. On R-22 I thought high side was ambient air temp plus 30psi....is that wrong?
Does this system use a TXV or orifice distribution? orifice
If TXV the bulb may be out of position and needs remounting and re-insulating.
Could the compressor be laying down?
Suction line NOT sweating and NOT cold to the touch.
Top of the compressor not sweating as well
