    Blocked drier, common problem with 134 and 404, replace it.

    dont just cut the capillary line
    use snips to score an outer line- similarly to stripping cable then use long nose pliers to to wiggle it then the capillary line will crack where youve scored-then braze this to ur drier first so to ensure u dont block the end. also as another tip= unsweat the 1/4 line on the pot and stick a charging stubb on it

    Can score the end with a hacksaw if the snips are crap... And if in doubt cut the drier open and look... I have purged OFN through to check a cap line before!
