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

I mentioned adjusting the pressure switch only because it could be way
out-of-adjustment. If it is screwed up so that it never opens then the
coil will frost over and the pressure will go higher and higher on the
low side. The low pressure switch OPENS when the pressure gets too
low. If the switch is adjusted too high so it never opens the evap
coil will freeze up. Maybe the switch is bad and never opens? He said
he replaced the switch so we don't know if it works or is adjusted
correctly. Anyway adjusting the low pressure switch is no big deal.
The BIG deal is knowing you got ALL the air out and the CORRECT amount
of refrigerent in. ANY air or the wrong amount of refrigerent and you
CANNOT properly adjust the low pressure switch and the system will not
