    How to properly install, wire, evacuate, and recharge the system.
    What other components need to be replaced or added when we change a compressor.

    Well, at least we got enough of a blow by blow description to pretty much figure out what went wrong.

    Can anyone say; "contaminants and partially blocked filter/drier?"

    you took yourself for an expensive non-productive ride

    what you should do next is look in the mirror, tell yourself you blew that one!

    then call a real HVAC company tell them what happened and see if they will fix your mistake!

    Bet either the orfice is plugged or if an expansion vlv closed. Not allowing the refrigerant to cool the compressor.

    They should of hired someone right away. There was probably nothing wrong with the old compressor. Ouch expensive but hey it's not my money being thrown away
    Not what it use to be
