Hi, make sure your contactor closes on a call, and your run capacitor isn't blown. Look it over to see if its leaking oil, swollen, or deformed. This will stop you from getting full power to compressor.

Will a 6 x 8 norlake freezer with cold pack unit above operate with 202 volts

The compressor will most likely not go on if the compressors capacitor does not get enough power to kick start the compressor motor. It sounds like one of the 120v lines is loose, burnt or corroded some where from the inside the panel to the connections inside the unit causing a voltage drop. If it is, you are looking at a fire hazard.

Where does the freon go cant find it for my 2003 jaguar x-type

You have 2 lines coming out of the compressor, one big, one little, the big one, has a fitting up on the fire wall or up front, they are all different, but it should have a letter L on it, that is the low pressure side, also, the only fitting that the filler will fit on. Your max pressure should read, 45? I think. and it will stop cooling at 30. So you have a small window there to work in. Any other problems, I don't know that much about, like high pressure and compressor stuff. But, check it out.

Loud compressor

This is a faulty compressor, one of the internal mounting springs has come unattached, but the only solution is to replace compressor long term, you could try wedging a piece of rubber or polestyren between compressor and mounting plate base, sorry no other possible solution. Regards Advisor
