Just curious. Back when the ambient temps. were cooler, what fan setting were you using?
Were you by chance attempting to charge using the lower fan setting?
On my 126, the compressor will cycle more often when the low speed fan is on(bottom button on my interior control panel).
If I use the middle or upper fan speed(much higher air volume), the compressor does not cycle near as often.
I seem to recall a comment awhile back that cycling more frequently @ low fan was a positive sign. I'll see if I can dig up this post and add it in here afterwards.
My 126's cycling characteristics are different than the domestic/asian models I've owned and all are/were R-12 systems.
