You said you found metal shavings in the orifice tube and you're not sure if it was replaced with the compressor last year. Well the orifice tube has no moving parts and does not wear out. so the leads me to think that it wouldn't have been replaced. There are shavings in your system; could they have destroyed the new compressor? failing compressor would see better function at speed than at idle..
