If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, instead of illegally releasing it to the atmosphere. Check for efficient airflow throughout the system. Confirm the correct electric control sequence to make sure of correct sequence of operation. Inspect electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections. Check the precision of the thermostat.
