I suspect you have either a leak allowing air in/Freon out or the system or you have moisture in there. Unfortunately, trying to push air out with the Freon will just not give great performance.

Either way, we need to pull it down into a vacuum and see how long it holds. It should hold it for a long time but we need to make sure it can for at least an hour.

Here is a guide that will help with this:
