There is frost on the inlet pipe of the compressor

You're overcharged.  The noise might liquid slugging in the compressor (not good).

Did a compressor change out a few months ago.  Weighed in the charge with a digital scale.  Was running at a 5" vacuum but was cooling fine, good frost pattern.  Then I realized I keep my shop at 60 degrees.  Bumped up the heat to 68, emptied the liquid from the high side hose and got it to the 0psi lowside I like to see. Maybe your hot weather is why your pressures are so high.

Sorry about the slight thread hijack.

You were right guys, I was overcharged. I let out some pressure on the high side till the low went down to 0 (it now rests slightly below that, but my gauge might be off slightly) and the high is around 105 or 110. The fat pipe (or ear as someone called it) sticking into the compressor is no longer frozen over either and the ominous shudder is gone. It still seems to be cooling 10degF higher than the setpoint in the freezer and about 4degF in the fridge, but I attribute that to my less than accurate thermometer, and am okay with a bit of error. As long as this thing works THIS WELL for the next 5 years, I'll consider this endeavor a success. Thanks for the input guys!! I hope I can retire this thread after this post :)
