    Lets start by asking how much oil and refrigerant did you put in?
    UA 100

    It takes three people to do anything around here. Two do the work, one explains to the crowd of people who showed up when they seen smoke and flames.

    Like I said ,,, look and look and look some more , check every possible area that has 134 behind it ,I've found some leaks in some unexpected places before ...

    If you can't find one resort to going back in couple weeks and thereafter to monitor leak rates ..

    Years ago I chased a leak all summer ,,,added charge every week,,,couldn't find a leak anywhere....

    Turns out a kid was filling trash bags with the refrigerant at night so he could huff it and get high

    shut the chiller down,isolate the chilled/condenser water and drain th barrels zero out then shut the drain cocks and cap them...next day see which one has pressure.it and the oil is going someplace.
