    Does it do this every cycle, or just after a power loss?

    I think I found your superheat problem.

    8 PSI is about -33 degrees. You said the case temp was 30, so assuming a severely starved evaporator, the suction line temp should be near the case temp,...

    it really sounds like you have no load. is there airflow through the coil? Are you sure the plenum behind the back wall is not full of ice?

    Also are you sure the coil is actually getting cold?...

    They told me that their dealer is a gas and circulates in the system as a gas and is removed when the refrigerant is recovered. Did they say this to you by any chance?

    One reason 134a is not used in split systems is that it requires huge pipes relative to the capacity. A 3 ton system would require a 1/2" liquid line and a 7/8 or 1-1/8 suction line
