Re: [DML] AC system compressor doesn't cycle, high suction pressure

True it would seem that way, but I can't see how  the system could 
operate correctly on only one pound of freon. It was originally 
designed to use 2.5 lbs., but a service bulletin changed it to 2.25 
pounds. I presently have 2 pounds installed. ( My post said 36 oz., 
but this was not correct, it's 32)

I may try recovering one pound from the system tonight.

Thanks for the reply,
