Make sure your tank has enough pressure to to get low side to push in. Check your manifold gauge set to ensure they are not deffective! Also you may check the valve stem in the service port to make sure there is not restriction or defect on the low side valve. Also Weigh in the refrigerant to make sure you are even putting in anything!

SOURCE: what the low and high side pressure for r410 freon

That depends upon the operating environment of the a/c system.The high side is directly related to the outside temperature and the low side depends upon the indoor temp, air flow across the evaporator coil, the relative indoor humidity and the static pressures of the duct system. There really is no rule of thumb to go by here but if all is operating properly then you should see something like this:

At 80° F the high should read from 277 psi to 295 psi with a clean condenser coil and the low will be about 116 psi to 130 psi or so if the blower and inside coil are functioning properly and the house temp is not too high or low.

If you are working with the high pressure of R410A refrigerant, also known by the trade name of Puron, then please take precautions to avoid accidental exposure of the face, eyes and exposed skin of the refrigerant and the POE oil it contains. Severe frostbite, lung damage and loss of eyesight may occur if exposure to raw refrigerant is experienced. Please consider calling a professional in your area to work on any refrigerant system.

SOURCE: My Goodman home air conditioner

The ideal pressures will be 68psi on suction and 225 psi on the liquid line.
If the pressures are close you should look for a blockage from dust in the evaporator coil,loose fitting air handler panels or a defective fan motor.

The contactor on the outside unit is sticking and must be replaced. The inside unit cycles off and the outside continues to run causing the refrigerant lines to freeze up.

What tells the fans to run when the ac is on?

Well the short answer is the computer.
The computer gets a signal from the high and low pressure switches, and when freon pressure reaches 200psi on the high side the computer grounds the fan relay.

A/C Compressor wont kick on unless jumped in fuse box using a paper clip. Compressor does not kick on with relay in place. Freon levels are between 35-40psi on low and 190-200psi on high side.

Normal pressure with the engine-compressor off is outside air temp. So both gauges would read 70 or 80 or whatever.
When the system is running, normal is 30-50 low and 200-300 high.
One thing that comes to mind to test is the low pressure switch.

Need to know the proper high side/ low side gauge readings when adding freon

The high side should read a little more than 100 pounds plus the ambient temperature. On a 100 degree day the high side will be over 200 pounds. A high side reading of 250 pounds is no problem. The important reading is the low side, and it should always be about 30 pounds. Higher than 30 will produce warmer air, and under 30 will cause the evaporator to freeze up.

How do you tell if a goodman ck36-1b has proper level of freon.Lets say it is 75 degrees outside and I added to where the low side reads around 30 and the high side is around 120-130.(orignal problem was...

The correct way is to evacuate the system,pull a vacuum then charge with a refrigerant scale.
In lieu of that you can charge by pressure and get close.
Normal operating pressure would be 68 psi on the suction side and about 225/275 on the high side.
You do have to calculate the outdoor and indoor ambient temperature.
At your 75 degree outdoor air a low side pressure of 60 psi or higher would be acceptable.
Your 30/130 is too low.
Add more refrigerant.

Make certain the indoor coil is clean and the fan motor is working correctly.
Have the leak repaired.

Air conditioner does not cool in 2000 Yukon.How do I check freon level and how to replace freon if need be

Get an r134a refrigerant add kit from Walmart or your local auto parts store.

You can even get a can of Arctic Freeze by Intermatics that has a hose and a gauge on it.

Connect the hose to the low side port. You can find this port on the 'thicker' piping that comes off of the compressor (versus the thinner piping that comes off the compressor which is the high pressure side).

Pressure should read 25 psi to 45 psi on the low pressure side when the compressor is running and the a/c is on.

Pressure should read 75 psi to 100 psi on a hot day when the car is off.

However, you'll want the a/c to be running when you add freon.

Press the button on the can to install more freon, if needed.

The small line coming in from the outside unit should be warm to hot and the larger line should be cool and sweating with water forming on it. I am taking for granted that the unit was working if so it sounds as if the unit is low on freon. your inside coil should be sweating a lot from top to bottom if it is only cool or sweating on the bottom but less to nothing up top you are low on freon. When very low the unit will stop working just like a broken valve in the compressor. If it is just a little low it will not cool properly and at night it might even freeze the inside coil up.

What happens when the pipe freezes?

low freon charge or your inside evap coils are dirty,,,check yourevap filter and replace if its dirty..also check your evaporater coils to see if its dirty,,,,,,,if its dirty you will need to flush and clean it...with coil cleaner and water......if all is clean and evap has good air flow..........your freon charge might be low......check your pressures hi and low.........hi side should be around 220 to 250 psi and low side should be 68 to 74 depends on the outdoor temp and indoor temps............have a certified hvac tech check the pressures.............

high side line is the small copper line
low side line is the bigger copper line............

a feedback would be good if this helps anyone...

Have air conditioner that freezes up after setting it on the lowest setting. checked the freon on the unit and the suction pressure was at 42 on the 22 scale & about 70 on the psi scale, low side. no...

if it's freezing up, chances are the freon is low, but read the info on the panel near the taps or the compressor to find out how much you should have. you need r-22 (if that is what it takes), guages, a thermometer for dry and wet, a temperature sensor for the tubing, and an epa license for moving freon. and there has to be a high side tap. the lower the pressure, the lower the temp, but if the temp after the metering device is below 32 f, it'll freeze. also if the condensate drain is clogged and the air flow across the evaporator coils is restricted.

Compressor freezes up at night and some during day.

You are being ripped off. The ambient (outdoor) temperature at night is low and therefore proper condensing does not take place causing the refrigerant to pool in the condenser and starving the evaporator. This causes a lower temperature in the evaporator resulting in "freeze up" which is often mistaken for a loss of refrigerant.
The proper thing to be done is to block off the condenser air causing the high side pressure to rise until the eqivillant of 110*F condensing temperature.
You can also install a low ambient kit which will cycle the compressor off when the temperatures fall
