    How long is the line set? And you sure you are closing a liquid service valve and not a discharge?

    Are you trying to recover the refrigerant or pump the refrigerant into the condenser?

    Certain York condensers had piercing needle valves that will not allow the user to pump refrigerant into condenser.

    With those types you must recover refrigerant into tank or perhaps use a pinch off tool.
