The AC went out and I filled it up with too much 134 A refridgerant. Any ideas on how to correct this? Thanks!

The proper way to correct an a/c system overfill is to empty the a/c system completely and refill it with the proper amount of 134A. There is special equipment which should be used to remove the 134A you have in the system now. With the proper equipment you can remove what is in the system now and reuse the same 134A, putting back only the amount necessary to properly fill the system.

An "AC machine" is necessary to properly remove and add 134a refrigerant. This machine will remove the existing 134a, store it in a holding tank, and allow you to recharge the correct amount. "How to" instruction are included with the machine as they very in their operating procedures.
