LSXS26366S not cooling. Compressor running, fans running. Evap not getting cold and condenser not warm. Compressor seems to be pulling 0.6a so I assumed it was low on Freon. Added a service port and fed a little at a time. Got around 7oz in it and currently compressor drawing around .9a

The evap is still not getting cold. Any ideas? Clogged condenser?

If the compressor is running and there is no frost on the evaporator coils there's a sealed system problem. The sealed system consists of the compressor, condenser, evaporator, heat exchanger, filter/drier and refrigerant. Common problems with a sealed system are bad compressors, refrigerant leaks, and system restrictions.

Sealed system repair costs will often exceed the machines value.
