Sorry, I missed understood, I did charge with dial-a-charge cylinder, not pressure.

The old fashion way to do measured a charge. If it  has a heater it will charge a system quickly.

Yes , I did use the heater. So how do I correct so the pressure is just , reclaim some refrigerate, right? . How do I accurately do that?

Btw, one more data point , it look like defrost is occurring every 8 hours I think and when it does the compressor is off and the pressure equalizes fast at 28psi , is this normal pressure to equalizes at?

If the average temp of the system is 32 to 33 deg f then 28 psi would be good.  Never really measured a lot of equalized pressures, but thinking in the 40 psi range would make me feel more comfortable.

Question , when the freezer is in defrost mode, the temperature in the freezer will rise as much as 30F and once it stops defrosting the compressor start again it should take about an hour or longer to reach freezer set temperature, right? 

What will be the symptoms of slightly overcharged fridge , and is it bad for the compressor?

If it’s full off frozen food, I doubt you will reach 30 degrees in compartment

well it is empty since I had issues with the freezer, so without any frozen items, for the freezer to keep temperature low , it will rise fast, correct. ? 

anyone has an idea of what the symptoms will be if the fridge was slightly overcharged ?

Hi, this morning I noticed little frost on the suction line just as it is come out of the freezer evaporator, maybe 4” or so , the fridge suction line has no frost as it is come out of the evaporator. It must be overcharged. The fridge temp is fine and the temperatures could be a little lower , it’s at 5F. Should the frosting stop as it exits the freezer evaporator? Should i put insulation  on the suction line as it comes out of the of the freezer ?

If you think it’s over charged recover, vacuum and weigh in proper amount. That is the correct way to do it.
