    I just troubled shot a newly installed Ameristar. System was installed in December2
    Services valves were closed. Pressurized and found leak at brazed joint at evap. Vacuum system and release charge. Pressures 160/254 sh 19f sc 3f (low) indoor temp 77 od temp 75. Suction line temp 76f temp split 7 compressor amp draw 6 rla 14..compressor does not seem to be pumping properly. I believe the system was running with service valves closer. appreciate all thoughts

    At 245/160 its pumping. What kind of metering device? I assume the system is 410a. What is the indoor? Fan coil or gas? Where is the duct .? How many runs and what size ? What size trunk if any ? What size filter ? What is the delta T ? What size is the system? Hard to armchair troubleshoot.
