Did you have the system evacuated and a vacuum pulled on it or are you just trying to add refrigerant without doing that?

the system has in fact been evacuated but when they go to charge it up and put the freon it acts as if its gonna take and out of nowhere it shoots out.


if you are using the low pressure port, you may have a blockage in the system
