WE HAVE REPLACED WITH NEW COMPRESSOR AND ADDED THE OIL AND FREON AND THE TEMPERATURE DOES NOT GET BELOW 60 DEGREES. WHEN THE REAR IS TURNED ON THE FRONT TEMP SEEMS TO RISE A COUPLE OF DEGREES. WE DONT KNLOW IF WE NEED TO CHANGE THE ACCUMULATOR, ORFICE, OR THE EXPANSION VALVE IN THE REAR
Do you

You must replace the accumulator whenever system is open. Air and moisture enter and the AC will never cool. Did old compressor shell ie make alot of noise and quit? If so debris is in the system. The orfice tube must be replaced for debris in screen.
How long did you vaccum down the system?
Let me know

The new compressor came with no oil, we added pag 150 oil 11 ounces. SO OUR NEXT STEP WE WILL REPLACE THE ACCUMALATOR AND ORFICE. I TAKE IT THAT THE COMPRESSOR DOES NOT NEED TO BE REPLACED.
