[DML] Re: A/C problem: compressor is not cycling

Pull the plug off of the low pressure switch. You should see a small
plastic screw in between the contacts. Try adjusting the swich in
small increments to get it to cycle. You need a bit more refrigerent
too. Look up the service bulletin for the exact amount. As for finding
the leak you should have also put some dye in when you recharged. From
your pressures you are not getting all of the air out. Since you have
a leaky system you should remove all of the oil from the compressor
and refill with fresh. Check all connections with leak solution.
Replace the service valves. A leaky high pressure discharge hose is
very common but hard to test until it blows out completely. Losing a
charge in 3 months is not a small leak.
