    How do the guys know the charge is correct with those pressures. What's the inside and outside temp and how old is the system. What seer. Txv or orifice. Whats superheat and subcooling. Are filters and both coils clean?

    Doesnt sound like a bad compressor to me.


    A bad compressor would tend to have a high suction, not a low suction.


    As a side note, it isn't smart to insult those who are trying to help you.

    More detailed system readings would tell a lot more about the problem.


    I've got a few ideas, but without a full set of readings, it isn't possible to guess.
