Install service port on GE Refrigerator

Hi, I've got a GE Refrigerator that either has a bad compressor or the closed system is low on refrigerant for some reason. I need to install a service port.

The compressor has three copper tubes attached. Two are the high side and low side, but one is a short piece that's crimped and brazed closed. It's my understanding that this short copper tube was used to initially charge the compressor during manufacture. Would the short tube that isn't in the low or high side circuit be a good location to install a service port?

Thanks for the assistance.

Most refrigerants require an EPA certified tech to dispense and therefore we don't discuss charging methods in the forums.

Does the compressor run continuously ?
