Recently replaced compressor on a late model 3-door maytag fridge.
Open initial evac and charge everything was great now when the system not running the pressures seem to be acting strange. The syxstem does equalize but it does so at about 10psi. After I first charged the u.it it would equalize at higher normal pressures. The fridge temps top and bottom are still showing good. Any ideas?0

Did you replace the filter/drier, too? They're recontaminate a system in a feart-bleep. Also, did you accurately measure out your charge? The tolerance for error in the charge mass is 1/4 oz.

remember, temperature affects pressure of refrigerant

the change in the pressure when equalized could simply be a result of the freezer evaporator and the refrigerant inside it now being cold

How are temperatures inside the compartments? That's the bottom line. ;)

Looks good. Want that beer compartment down to 36 but that's probably a control adjustment issue.
