    Nice job on the pics Nic. Look at the 3rd pic. That is the reciever drier (the big silver cannister) In this pic on the right side of it you can see the low pressure switch screwed into the side of it. It has the green wires on the plug in. Unplug it from the switch & bridge the 2 wires in the plug with a paper clip or wire or anything metal that you can bridge it with. If your compressor runs steady with it bridged, then your AC needs to be recharged. Remember this is only a short term test for 15-20 seconds. Don't leave it like that or compressor damage will occour.

    Maybe it was just a intermittant connection on the LP swith wires, I don't know. How did you check it for being fully charged?
