    Call a pro immediately, tell them you need it pumped down fast, sit back and let them do their job.

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

    First off, define "pumpdown". If you are referring to using the compressor to bring most of the refrigerant into the condenser/heat pump, then fast is not always a good thing, especially if you have a scroll compressor.

    Do not allow the system to pump down to less then 20% if you don't want to take a chance on damaging the compressor or even having the fusetite seal on the compressor blow out.
