    I had a problem with this unit today there was a new outdoor unit installed about 2 months ago and the tenant claims that the unit is not cooling the same I put my gauges on it and notice that the back pressure was 80 psi and the head pressure was 150 psi and putting a charge in it was like pulling teeth, the suction line is sweating good. supply is 61f, suction line was about 63f. What is going on with this unit. Its NOT a leak service valves are new and not a restriction any where by the look of my pressures. Thank you for any comments

    Sounds like an oversized metering device.

    Wrong size or missing piston.
