Depsite you posting 3 times, I can reply to you in one.
Your problem is low gas. Rapid compressor cycling is a characteristic of a
low charge. Have it vacuumed out and rechared with the correct weight of
R134a as per the under bonnet sticker. (750grams I think off the top of my
head for the 70series)
