if they found the leak and refilled as you said then the system was flat:huh: and if so did they re vac the unit piping prior to recharging....do a micron test to verify the system is tight before recharging this is all time to you but it sounds like hit and run.if the unit is short on freon the ice starts on the insulated line out of the furnace air handler then travel out to the condenser and compressor takes hours.the temp split on the 2 parts of your system are...:thumbup: 18F split on the air handler (air return vs air discharge)read as close to the coil as possible without removing covers..outside condenser 10F temp rise on the air into the coils (past your legs as you stand in front of it) and discharges into your face...:furious: give or take a degree that is a fully charged unit running.how is your coil especially those bottom 5 rows is the liquid line warm hot what:huh: to the touch.and yes always wait 5 minutes or more before restarting the system it need time to equalize even if you push the contactor in for the compressor and fan they both run at the same time and if your low on freon the compressor will shut off hard to hear if looking down into the blowing fan...get back...:wink: save your invoices from these brain surgeons and don't pay $$$$ any more for anything:no: once they touched that unit at either end they are married to it till it is working at that 10F/18F i gave you:thumbsup:
