    As to what actually happened, you probably over-charged it.

    Hermetic reciprocating compressors are refrigerant cooled, so a little liquid isn't likely to hurt a healthy compressor.
    great advice and thank you

    Not to be contentious, but some folks, myself included, never saw the need to become "pro".
    I joined in 2005 and applied for pro status in 2011.
    My status as a pro or as not a pro, never impacted my ability to provide for me and mine, nor did it sell or lose any jobs.
    In fact, a couple of the pro members here, unbeknown to me, were the local gurus I consulted when having a problem.

    The point is this site is not supposed to be about giving DIY advice to people who may not be in the trade.
