What are the symptoms of air in the charge? When I release charge from system I get intermittent mix of air and poe oil. That's bad right?

It is illegal to release refrigerant. Homeowners are unlikely to own recovery units and vacuum pumps.

I'm aware of the legal ramifications. It's a question, not a lesson in morality. I can dooo whatever I want with refrigerant. The legal part is about consequences not actions. As are all "rules". So if you're done assuming what is "unlikely" kindly answer the question instead of bolstering that condescending attitude...

Refrigerant charge questions are not allowed on this site. I will not answer questions about it since this is not allowed and I agree with this rule.

I know air will get trapped in the condensor because its non condensable and as long as there is a liquid seal it will stay there. The old method was to bleed it off the condensor. I'm just using that as a quick test. I know how to use a recovery pump and recovery tank to collect the charge, cool the tank to ambient temp and then bleed the air off the top.

I recommend calling a professinal contractor to service your unit. We do not offer assistance with refrigerant charging questions on this site.
