On my 1996 ss impala what low side pressure should I see on the a/c with the system running

It all depends on the outside (ambient) air temperature. Your A/C low pressure switch is designed to turn the compressor off at 24 Psi. and turn it back on at 45 Psi. Most systems will normally run at between 25 and 40 Psi when the system is running on HIGH blower and "MAX" or "RECIRCULATE". A system that is fully charged may run at 25 Psi when the ambient temperature is 75 Deg. (F) and may run at 40 Psi when the ambient temperature is at 90 Deg. (F). (it can be even higher if ambient temperatures are higher than 90 Degrees.)

To properly diagnose a malfunctioning A/C system, the HIGH side pressure must also be checked. Restrictions in the system can make the low side pressure look normal while the high side pressure is high enough to blow hoses apart. (400+ Psi.)

I am working on a M # GPG13420901AB. This is a 3.5 ton package unit that replaced a 3 ton package unit on 1700sq/ft single level home. Old unit was working fine but was replaced when the home was...

It sounds like you are low on charge. I think you have a thermostatic expansion valve and you need to check the subcooling, you should have 12 to 15 degrees at 95. At 95 degrees your head should be about 280# for a 12 or 13 SEER unit or higher depending on the effeciency. At 78 to 80 degrees indoor depending on the humidity, that is normal. The valve will open to try to fully feed your indoor coil and it sounds like your head pressure is to low to force enough refrigerant thru the coil.

Air compressor pulley was not engaging on 94 Nissan Quest. Started to add some R134a and after a few seconds the center of pulley engaged but will cut out after a couple of seconds. Continued to charge...

Touchy situation. Without a machine it's tough. If your system was EMPTY, then you need to add up to what your A/C sticker says.It should be located on radiator support. Fully charged system should read around 35 degrees. Too much freon will cause one to run high pressures also.

Ac won't go down past 78 F while operating the presures are 15/ 150 psi. I think it needs charge. But how much charge what pressure does the low side need to be at?

The temperature outside and pressure chart are needed to accurately determine the proper charge. (temperature pressure charts to calculate heat gain) However the low side of the unit should read around 70 and the high around 210. This is a really broad generalization and I do not recommend you charge your unit just on this info. It will get you close if you are using R-22 and the unit is properly cleaned. A dirty evaporator coil will cause a severe low pressure reading on the low pressure side.

How much generator do I need?

On average, a rooftop unit with pull 14 to 16 amps depending on the ambient temperature. I am not sure how big your microwave is but we will assume 1000W. The TV really doesn't pull that much. So, you have 16 amps at the Air Conditioner, 8.5 Amps at the Microwave and we will say 5 amps at the TV. Lets not forgot the converter for the coach which pulls 3 to 5 amps on average. Add all of these amps together and you have 34.5 on the high end. To get the size Wattage of generator needed to run 34.5 amps, you take 34.5 and multiple it by the electricity source, in your case 120V. That means that you have 4,140 Watts of power to be used max. I think that with a 4000 watt generator, you will be fine. You may be able to go a little bit smaller if your microwave is not that large. To find the amps of the microwave that you have, take the wattage and divide it by 120. That will give the average amps that it pulls while running.

Hope this helps,

Coleman rooftop unit ac only.

These units should run in higher ambient conditions within limits. If your unit shuts down with an ambient temperature of 95°F there is a possibility that the system may have a slight over charge of refrigerant in the system or a slight undercharge. This can be easily checked under running conditions by checking the superheat of the gases returning to the compressor. You may also want to check the current draw and the voltage supply during these conditions that are causing the system shut down.

My 2007 unit don't get cold enough. the maximum outlet air is 60 degrees

Ozone friendly refrigerants work on all the same principles as the old type of refrigerants. Outside ambient temperatures when higher will reflect on the cooling end of the system. Pressure and temperatures in any refrigerated device are directly related in all cases. Refrigerant charge to produce the proper output is critical in these units. Name plate is printed with a specific charge. If the charge is low the output will be less.
