Thanks for all the help and comments, sorry for some of the wars of words I seem to have started.
I released some pressure as advised and the current
draw has dropped to maybe 6.5A, I released for 5sec and waited, current
dropped, released for another 5 dropped again.
I have been reluctant to loose any more as we have been in the back end of the Bahamas
and the fridge is still cold just using way to much current.
Advise please on whether I should do more ????
I will be in the US early June and will get a vacuum and refill then if needed.
