Probably the Cryo-chem caused

the compressor to seize! If there is a leak from the seal, they advise strongly NOT to use the product.

Of course, if you didn't have a compresor seal leak at the time you fixed the evaporator leakl, how could you know. About the only thing one can do is to flush the system after the leak seals with 'fresh' R-134a.

That brings up an interesting problem: I pretty sure that an A/C shop will not want to re-claim your 'dirty' R134a in their AC machine. So you would probably have to 'dump' it.
