    Schedule an eddy current ....

    Leak check and check and check every inch ...

    Still can't find it ?

    Go back in two weeks and another two weeks and follow the factory charging procedure ,I'm sure you did this time , and if it's low you have an idea of your leak rate.

    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.

    A test you can have done to tell you what the integrity of your tubes is. Can't tell exactly how the magic they use all works but it's very helpful information to have. It will tell what tubes are leakin and what tubes are about too. Unless you want to buy the equipment and start doing it yourself, extremely expensive, how the magic works isn't all that important.

    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

    Tighten up the packing nut on the discharge ball valve. Get her running at 100% with the liquid level between 1.8 -2.0.
