Just went to have a/c emptied and refilled but it will not take any freon at all. Everything else seems to be working as it should. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Was the shop using gauges and a bottle, or the automatic machine?

This way you charge through the high side with liquid. But the system must be in a vacuum for it to work. Did they try to charge gas thru the low side? And was the accumulator drier replaced and the orifice tube? If not, one of them may be clogged. Usually it's the accumulator.
