You need to evacuate and capture any remaining refrigerant in the system. Next, remove the old unit and replace it, using MINIMUM 15% SILVER SOLDER for your joints. Vacuum the system for 30 minutes and shut the pump off. The vacuum gauge will not move at all, in a 2 hour period, if the system is connected properly. Attach your coolant manifold and install EXACTLY the required weight of coolant. Too much or too little will result in failure. Improper evacuation will result in failure.

Air cond compressor locked up

Was it the compressor or the compressor clutch? The compressor clutch can be changed out cheaper than the compressor. So make sure you check it out before going foward with changing out the compressor.

Compressor runs loaded continuously even in low/no demand periods

Each compressor should be checked several times per year as to length of time it takes to fill an empty tank to set pressure. This will provide chart of performance / efficiency. I believe that compressor #2 is not running to full capacity. If compressor # 2 is suffering from leaking valves or headgasket the head and air discharge temp will higher than compressor #1. Good luck!

Ac clutch does not get power checked fuses and relays all look good. it will click if i jump power is there a known probleml. car sat for a year

Yep your Compressor clutch has gone bad.
You can either change the whole compressor, or just have the clutch changed on the compressor.
You are better off having the whole compressor changed; by the time you pay the labor to have it taken out, clutch changed, and reinstalled, you could have just paid for the new A/C compressor.

Converting from 220 to 110 volts

Most brands of air comperssors are built to work on either 220 or 110 v. I believe that 220 v compressors are more efficient and draw less current and run cooler.
The more expensive compressors have a switch allowing for voltage selection. Still others will have a wiring diagram printed on the motor allowing voltage change by changing jumpers. Most all of the sears compressors that I have repaired were of single voltage with no other way to change except change motor. Do not worry however, you have the better motor. It is easier to convert the outlet plug to 220 by isolating the circuit and installing a 220 v breaker. enjoy

Compressor not working

Why did you change the mother board? Was the compressor working before the change? If it was, then you need to check the new board and see if there were any wires that need to be cut when it was installed. If it wasn't running before the board change then you might try the overload on the compressor first. Also it should be checked with a compressor checker to determine if the comp is at fault or not
