    Purchased on line.
    Not following best industry practices.
    No certification in handling or using refrigerants.

    Let it run, it will die a slow death

    Kinda wondering if this was actually a joke. If not then the system will give plenty of problems. Just because it’s running doesn’t mean it’s running right. Would really recommend hiring a contractor to fix EVERYTHING. Good luck.

    Yeah. Our profession is not something that can be learned from an online post, or even an online course.

    You'll need to ask a local contractor to rectify what you have done.

    It should be recovered, vacuumed and recharged with virgin refrigerant.
