After moving into new home, I had my central a/c R-22 checked out because who knows when it was last serviced. The Unit is a Rheem and looks to be about 8 years old.
I called for service because the a/c would turn on for 10 minutes then shut down for another 10 minutes. This would happen all day long. So I was assuming the unit did not have enough freon in it and it should be serviced.
When the a/c tech arrived, we went out to the outside unit. He checked the levels with the guages and said it would need some freon. After hooking up the cylinder and attempting to add freon, he said it wasnt taking the freon and something could be holding it up in the air handler. For more $, he was going to climb into the attic to find out what was wrong.
Does this normally happen? Is there a certain part that allows the freon to be entered into the system?
