Pull it forward and seei if the drain pan is either overflowing or empty. If it,s empty, check the drain isn't blocked, causing meltwater to leak from inside. If it's overflowing, check the door seals properly and the defrost settings are ok.
There are a lot of variables that cause high head pressure. Be sure the cool ing fan is operating properly. It should come on whenever the condenser coil feels warm to the touch. It will cycle on and off as the pressures change. A clogged up coil will also cause high head pressure. If you don't have sufficient water flowing over the evaporator plate, where the ice freezes, the head pressure will go up. You need to check the low side head pressure as well. Weighing the charge is a good start to charging the machine , but the first question I would ask is why are you charging it? Was there a leak, or compressor change?
If you had a compressor burnout, did you replace tthe drier-filter?If not, it may be stopped up from burnout residue. That will also cause high head pressure. If you did not vacuum the system there may have been refrigerant still in the system before you started the new charge. Check the items I mentioned and see if that helps.
The doors should be warm. There or heaters in the doors or what they call a yodelers loop in the frame around the doors that keeps condensation from forming. Make sure the fan if blowing on the compressor and the fan inside the freezer is also running. If so be sure there is no ice built up on the bottom inside back panel of the freezer. If so you will have a defrost problem and the coil is full of ice and not allowing the air to flow through it and cool the fridge. If there is ice, the heater behind the panel is most likely bad.
most units are on a timed defrost that occurs at different times so finding the exact time will be hard but defrost times are about 30 minutes. from the pressures you posted I'm thinking that the condenser fan is not running or the condenser itself is plugged up with dust. (i'm not very familiar with r404 but for most other refrigerants the hi side pressure is really hi). if its still in warranty you would be better off to call your service company after your sure the condenser itself is clean to prevent a charge for impproper maintanence. thanks peyton
