Jeep wrangler ac problem

I posted this on a wrangler forum but didn't get any replies, so I'm turning to the experts here:

Last fall my AC stopped working on my 2004*wrangler. I made a huge mistake by recharging it with a product with a leak sealer. To make a long story short after lots of dollars thrown at people fixing symptoms I believe the system is clogged and causing high pressure situation resulting in parts springing leaks (like now the condenser).*

Is the a way to flush out the mess I caused? I would have a professional do the work but before I take it in I want to make sure there's a good chance of flushing the system will fix the underlying problem.*

Thanks for your help.

The lines should be flushed with denatured alcohol and replace expansion valve should work. Most ac places should know this.

Thanks! I believe it's safe bet to replace the orifice tube too. Will flushing the system with denatured alcohol remove the leak sealant from the system or should they use some other chemical before using the alcohol?

AC work is almost foolproof these days with automatic recovery & recharge systems. You might need to check if this will work with the "home remedy" you tried It's more reasonably priced since (hopefully) you don't have to buy replacement freon after the repairs are made. Link below explains some of the process if you're not familiar with it. Good luck
