I tried adding refrigerant but the gauge goes all the way to the end of the red and it won't take any new refrigerant.
Do you
have the same problem?

Yes it is turning. I followed your guides and got a new compressor from Amazon for $178.00 and fixed it myself was not that hard. Here is me adding Freon. Thanks again for your help I love this site.
