    Good advice.....but how does one watch the guages when the TXV bulb is at the evaporator, but the guages are outside (at the condensor). Must be a 2 person type of test I suppose, a real good one though...thanks!

    Was compressor a scroll, maybe I missed that, There are problems with scrolls run for a period on a flat leaking system. They can give your exact symptoms.
    Clean up the system by pulling charge, new F/D on the liq. line and a deep vac.
    If it is a scroll and you notice a strong acrid smell that follows you around for several days; problem will probably reoccur.

    of course, you gotta fix the leak first. LOL

    It means you need better personal hygiene.

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

    twenty bucks says unit will have same problems as old one. if you don't take the time to find out what killed the previous compressor, you are destined to kill this one. ditto on the symptoms; air, water, txv, clogged/frozen orifice, kinked line,clogged drier. did anyone bother to flush system and install replaceable core suction line driers after first burnout? is all that good sludge and winding bits still in the system? eff him, he's a doctor right? wow.
