Walk in freezer
i am working on walking freezer
which was not running
faulty starting component
ran unit it trip on low pressure switch.
frost on txv and distributor tubing
h.p 350 l.p 25# amb. temp 95*-100
l.p rises when not operating. l.l solenoid faulty
Replace l.l valve and filter drier . Recover (404a) freon
flush system after disconnecting txv w/dry nitrogen lots of oil came out of distributor tubing pull vacuum, break vacuum w/dry nitrogen 5# and again pull vacuum for 4 hrs. charged unit h.p 225 l.p25# box temp after 1 hr 53* frost still building on txv outlet and distributor. i am suspecting system is contaminated any idea what is going on my next step is to replace txv valve before doing that i wanna mke sure syetem is clean. is ther a way to check the system w/out opening.
any assistance or advice will be greatly appreciated

With the number you show, it looked pretty good to me, maybe a little under charge. Frosting is normal.
What is your sub cooling? ________ super heat? _________
Decide what you want, decide what you are willing to exchange for it. Establish your priorities and go to work." H.L. Hunt
"In order that people may be happy in their work, these three things are needed: They must be fit for it. They must not do too much of it. And they must have a sense of success in it." John uskin
Why do you think it's contaminated when you tell us you pulled the charge and vacuumed everything? Assuming you charged as a liquid.... Without any temps other than your pressures it would seem to me you have a restriction. Would be helpful to have a superheat number to know what the expansion valve is doing. If you have a receiver then I wouldn't worry about subcooling. Superheat would be anywhere from 6-10 for my taste but maintaining your 20 degree compressor superheat. Taking a superheat reading I bet will point you the right direction.
Not a lot to go on here, but I would pump it down and check and clean the tx screen... Could have a weak power head too.
Thanks all of you guys for advice iam going there today I wil remember 3. things for sure They must be fit for it. They must not do too much of it. And they must have a sense of success in it
So the cooler was walking before and now it's the freezer? Better catch them before they walk too far. I have read your posts. It's time to call a qualified tech and stop asking for free advice. If you really are a tech, you need some serious education. It seems all you do is change parts hoping for a fix. Pick up the Fundamentals of Refrigeration, which is standard text at the trade schools, and don't put it down until you learn something.

Your walking freezer is building frost on the TXV?
OH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I am debating if there is a mismatch. I have collected all the info.will do a serious anylisis.
