Default AC Experts - Could this be causing an issue?

Hello,

I was re-doing the insulation on the pipe going to my compressor. When I got the old insulation removed I found that there is a crimp in the line.





My AC seems to run ok. It is older (we have been here 17 years and it predates us) but does cool pretty good.

So, could this crimp be keeping it from working to full potential or could it be causing any other issues that I am not aware of?

Thank you in advance for your opinions.

It doesn't look like that bad of a bend. If you have a clamp thermometer and take temp readings 3 to 6 inches on each end of the kink that would show evidence of having an effect. Also if one end starts freezing and the other side is not that's a very strong indicator of a problem.

I will check the temperature, will have to get a clamp thermometer first.

I have not seen any icing.

Thanks
