To get super heat you need to check the temperature of the evaporator where the refrigerant is exiting. It will travel to the compressor once it has absorbed heat from the indoor air flowing over it. The refrigerant R-22 will change states from a liquid to a vapor gas at 40 degrees. the air in the house is drawn across this indor coil filled with 40 degree refrigerant and it will start to absorb heat from that air. Super heat is considered to be any heat gain in the refrigerant after the change of state from a liquid to a vapor. 40degrees at the evaporator coil where the refrigerant exits the coils all the way to where the tubeing enters the compressor where the temp is maybe 55degrees. This is Superheat and it would be called 15 degrees of superheat. That is how much heat was gained in the refrigerant after it had flashed to a vapor in the evaporator and then passed through the suction line which enters the compressor. Remember the one constant....R-22 boils at 40 degrees and changes from a liquid to a vapor! No matter what this happens so any temp gained over 40 is considered superheat! 10 to 13 degrees of superheat is considered optimal on most units. Hope this helped in understanding how superheat works!

What is causing the blower not to work?

My guess would be the blower motor resistor connection because they get hot and cause the pigtail to loose its connection.Turn the ignition and fan switches on and then wiggle and pull on the pigtail going to the resistor.Its located on the passenger side of the heat duct.Usally there are 2 screws that mount it to the heat duct.

My snes freezes when i play super mario world every time i get a coin or hit the blocks my game freezes. I thought it was the game at first so I bought another super mario world and It has the exact same...

Well maybe the console needs to be cleaned out esspecially if its filled up with dust and dander.
Dust causes video game consoles to over heat 10 times faster than their normal heating rates.
To clean out the console use a canned duster like for computers.
