    compressor failure

    hi everyone

    work on 2 ton goodman unit lo 65 HI 300 A 93* indoor 104*
    suc line never get cool or sweat vent put out 70* only, for all night.
    recovered ref and pulled vacuum to 30 M , for about about an hr.
    still got no relieve .
    checked metering device which is fixed ,and cut the line set and blowed opposite directions of eva coil seems good. nothing restricted.

    in the next morning suc line and eva coil frozen up a little .
    replaced eva coil,and it still dont solve the problem.
    cond and eva coil is cleaned. pressure remain same.

    so i replaced the condenser today ,and everything doing excellent as it should and expected .
    in my opinion suction valve in the comp was bad ,or is there any better way to tell if the compressor is goes bad ?

    any comment will be appriciated, thanks.

    A new LLFD would have been cheaper, and quicker.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Don't see how the suction valve could cause low suction press.

    if you have to replace the evap and cond, you should have got a new E.E unit.
