    What is your question???? If i am guessing right your unit is low on gas..... Look for leak. They use the hot gas to control the load.

    Worked on an air drier several months back that had a bad txv power head. Hot gas valve was keeping suction pressure up, but suction line was HOT! Removed charge and looked for a leak, only to find a tight system. Backed off the bypass valve setting to keep the valve closed, and the suction side went to a vacuum. Replaced power head, and reset bt-pass valve.
