It may be overcharged now. Let some of it out until it stays running.
Why did you add freon? if it needed freon then you must also have a leak or a bad compressor
What was the issue with the a/c to lead you to putting in freon?

2 yr. old. worked great. Then started shuting down self changing setting to low. shortly after, shuts down after 3 min. no water collection, unit is hot. Took apart. Cleaned everything inside, and filter....


Robinson, it really sounds like the compressor is overheating. This may be caused by a low refrigerant gas in the compressor. Or the compressor's oil has leaked down. But, if you took the unit apart to clean it, I would think that you would have noticed an oily residue. If it is the compressor (other than needing to be recharged) it would cost almost as much to replace it, as it would be to buy a new unit.
At least with a new one, you'd have a one year warranty and more, if you purchase an extended warranty.

Hope this helped you.

Boots up windows runs for 5 mins then system shuts


You may have a cooling problem (with older computers), if you hear your fan running excessively and then it shuts down on you. Otherwise it is more likely a hard drive issue.

Starts, runs 5 min. then shuts down everything, won't restart for couple minutes and with aid of jumper cables


does the truck have an anti-theft system? if so did u install anything new on the vehicle( stereo, remote starter etc...)if not then the module for the anti-theft my be toast. if u have installed anything new, double check where the wiring for the new component has been spliced, the anti-theft module needs at least a 5 volt signal in order 2 work. if this wire has been spliced then u will not have enough voltage to run the module properly.the module runs on a timer so if the truck stalls then u will have 2 wait about 5 mins for it 2 reset b4 u can restart the vehicle

My outside unit runs a little while then shuts off.


More likely the out door fan motor has bad bearings and that would cause the out door unit to run for 15 to 20 min but it could be low on freon
when the out door unit runs after 3 to 5 min the larger of the two copper lines going into the unit should be ice cold

If the thermostat you just installed has a time delay that will keep the indoor blower motor running for up to 5 min after the unit shuts off
