high low side


hey I have an old ruud, that I thought was out of freon. I added les than a pound and the low side shot up to 90 PSI. the high side was about 200. I could not figure out what was going on so I recovered all freon and pulled it down to -30. I thought maybe there was air in the lines or something. I put back in 2 pounds on a factory charge of 3.6 pounds and the low side is 100 PSI. The outside temp was 85. The compessor is working right since I am getting 100. the suction line temp stayed at 84 no matter what I was doing. I did noticed when I took the fan off the lines inside were very hot and so was the compressor. I cleaned the outside coils, but that didnt help.
Im thinking maybe blockage on the suction side?

Any clues?

Bad valves in compressor need to replace the compressor.

high low side


Looks like air pressure in it. If you have a vacuum pump vacumm the system if not just purge it with the gauges
