Question about 2003 Honda Accord
There is not a site glass on your Accord, nor is there a freon canister. There isn't even any freon. It is R134A. Freon was discontinued a few yrs ago because it hams the environment. It doesn't sound like the clutch field coil. It either works or it's broken. It doesn't come and go. When you changed the belt, did you disconnect anything? Chech the pug in connection on the compressor and any sensors on the AC lines. Finally, have some r134a serviced into it. It's fairly cheap to go and get it recharged and the pag oil can be added along with some dye to locate any leaks now or in the future. If you feel skilled enough, you can buy the stuff at your local parts store. Low fill can cause your symptoms.
If you still have the problem after the refrigerant is filled and all plugs are connected, you may have damaged your compressor with the smaller belt. So... Finally, Tell me more about the belt. How did you later find out it was too small? Did the compressor start making noise?

A/C works on a principal of compressing the gas in the system and sending it to the cool condensor in the car where it cools the vehicle, then goes to the front condensor where it releases the heat generated by the process. Several things can be happening here; the front condensor is plugged up with bugs and debris and needs to be cleaned; the interior condensor is freezing up from moisture freezing on it; the small control valve that makes the whole thing work is freezing up and the system is on hole untill it thaws and then it starts working again. There could be a problem with the amount of freon in the system. In the front of the engine next to the condensor is a freon storage canister with a small glass window in the top of it. With the airconditioning running look in the window and see if there is fluid running smoothly thru it of if it is bubbly and foamy going by the window. If bubbly and foamy then the A/C needs to be serviced. The compressor clutch will not work untill the system has the right pressure on the safety switch in the system. Good luck, RAC
