    Thought i would let you guys know that the liquid line was blocked almost completley shut about 10 inches from condenser. Running like a champ now.

    Dont know what it was black hard as hell crap.We were thinking compressor windings so we changed out compressor had about 4 inchs of liq line plugged. I felt like a jackass for not seeing the problem. On this unit it has a sensor right before the filter dryer wrapped with insulation when i was checking it out i seen filter freezing so i changed the filter if i would have removed the insulation i would have seen it was freezing about 3 inches before filter right were it was plugged other tech found it in about 30 minutes.

    I had some of that stuff in a 2 ton Trane condensor once, don't know what the heck it is either. That was a couple years ago. Just replaced the condensor coil, kept the compressor. Still running after 2 years.

    could it be that when they did the piping that theplugs in the copper were not removed and melted when being brazed?

    Your problem could have been easily solved by installing something other than Trane.
