Could be as simple as air bypassing the coil. Sloppy install.
Tracers work both ways.
Put your temperature probe between the coil and blower. Look for a significant difference between that and the supply air.

entering wet bulb 65
return air 75
all taken at unit.
I considered a restriction in the evap coil/metering dervice (TXV) but superheat should have been lower (coil) or higher (TXV) and pressure were close to normal 345/120.
Cond. delta t was 10, ambient 95.
I can see there is a problem but what I'm just not seeing.
I replaced the TXV & Filter/Dryer and blew nitro through both ways. No change. Found out it was compressor with valves going bad.
Hope this helps.
Can someone please explain to me -
Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?
