I need to know what I should do after I let the extra freon out.

If I let out the excess freon will it get colder or is there still another problem. What steps should I take next. Please help its about to get hot and I am about broke. Need to do as much on my own as I can.

    I don't think it will get any colder, but will be less likely to explode.
    This work should be done by we ll trained people with the proper equipment

No, it will not get colder. "Freon" is what makes the air conditioner blow cold air. Letting it out would make your a/c compressor shut down due to low pressure. Adding too much will make your a/c shut down due to high pressure. There is a very narrow window where you have enough but not too much refrigerant in your system. Also, if you vent it to the atmosphere, you risk breathing it in. Refrigerants are heavier than air, therefore, when you breathe it in, it settles in your lungs and lower extremities and your body can never rid itself of it. Take it to a professional and have them do it for you, it really is not as easy as the auto parts stores make it sound.

The freezer doesn't freeze that good but the refridgerator does work.


It is possible that the defrost cycle is not working. Look for signs of ice built up in the freezer compartment. The excess ice prohibits the air circulation.


26128165-5xkmzur1kbcrfneaoxy43scu-3-0.jpg If defrost cycle appears working and compressor runs continuously it is probable that the Freon is low or compressor is failing.

the usual tell is the refrigerator gets colder than usual and the freezer does not get as cold. The situation is that the compressor runs until the freezer temperature is satisfied. If the compressor can not achieve the cold temperature of the freezer it will run continuously.

When the unit runs continuously the bi-pass of air is increased bringing more cold air into the refrigerator portion of the unit.

Where is the expansion valve on a 05 rx8


The expansion valve is bolted directly to the evaporator core. You will need to recover the Freon before attempting to remove this. Once the Freon has been recovered, and the expansion valve removed, be sure to cap off any and all a/c lines to prevent excess air/moisture from entering the system. Once the new valve is installed, you will need to pull a 30 hg vacuum on the system for at least 30 minutes then recharge with the proper amount of Freon.

Need to reset blent door actuater on 2000 ponyiac bonnevile


I never heard about a need to "reset" a blend door.
Are you trying to fix a condition where the passenger side blows hot or cold, but opposite the temperature of the driver side?

If a/c, you probably need some Freon recharge. If heat, check your coolant level.
My 2005 Bonneville had this problem with the a/c. I looked at the blend doors for hours, before getting a clue about the low Freon.

I suggest that you take your Mazda to a service facility to have the air conditioning problem corrected. Adding Freon from a can just wastes Freon

2000 dodge durango, a/c compressor stopped working after freon was added, did I do something wrong?


at a rough guess you add excessive amounts of freon and that caused the compressor to seize up
gas is added using pressure gauges and not by the can
besides that did you use the correct gas as the r134a runs at a much higher pressure and will deliver liquid back to the compressor which is not good for the operation

RCV Valve is causing this issue. Refrigerant Control Valve. $40.00 part but most mechanics will want to replace your compressor.

When i turn on my air conditioner in my 1999 durango it blows out hot air. can i put in antifreeze myself or do i need to take to the dealership?


Antifreeze is only for the radiator, does not affect the air conditioner, make sure you have the setting on cold, if it is still hot than take it to your local air conditioner re gas station, most auto electricians do it, dealerships usually send them out which you end up paying extra for!!! You just need a re gas in your air conditioner.

How do I bleed out the excess freon from my ac in my 1994 chrysler concorde?


from the same port you put it in, thats why you should leave it to a person that knows what they are doing. its ILLEGAL to vent it to the atmosphere. A shop needs to recover the r134.

My 2008 F250 w/ auto air conditing will only blow hot air after the truck is out in the sun for a short time when it is cool in the morning it works fine..


YOU NEED TO ADD MORE FREON TO THE UNIT. SOUNDS LIKE IT NEEDS TOPPING OFF. YOU CAN BUY R-134A FREON IN A PACKAGE WITH A HOSE AT A PARTS STORE. DON'T KNOW HOW TO CHARGE THE UNIT , NO PROBLEM. OPEN HOOD, START TRUCK,TURN A/C TO MAX WITH BOTH DOORS OPEN RUNNING AT
NORMAL SPEED, NO REVING, THEN FIND A BLACK METAL PIPE
RUNNING FROM A SILVER DEVICE CALLED AN ACCUMULATOR.
THE PIPE WILL HAVE A CONNECTOR, JUST UNSCREW THE CAP
AND PLACE FREON HOSE WITH THE CAN CONNECTED TO IT AND
SECURE THE END OVER THE PORT VALVE. OPEN FREON VALVE ON THE CAN AND PLACE UPRIGHT AND LET IT SIT. WHILE INSTALLING THE FREON, FEEL THE VENTS BY THE DOORS OR
DASH TO SEE IF THEY ARE GETTING COLDER. WHEN THE VENTS ARE COLD YOU CAN TURN THE VALVE OFF ON THE FREON CAN
AND DISCONNECT IT FROM THE FITTING AND PLACE THE CAP
BACK ON THE VALVE. THAT'S ALL THERE IS TO IT. YOU CAN ASK THE PARTS STORE CLERK WHICH PORT IS FOR CHARGING THE UNIT IF YOUR UNSURE. THEY ALSO SELL R-134A FREON WITH A
SEALANT MIXED IN WITH THE CAN JUST IN CASE YOUR UNIT MAY HAVE A LEAK IN THE SYSTEM. REMEMBER, **NO REVING** NO
MATTER WHAT ANYONE SAYS. THE SYSTEM WILL NOT CHARGE FASTER. IF YOU WANT FASTER CHARGING THEN KEEP THE CAN WARM. FREON WORKS WITH AMBIENT TEMPERATURE WHICH
MEANS WARM DAY OR CAN IS FASTER THAN A COLD DAY AND
A COLD CAN. FREON MOVES FASTER WHEN HEATED.

How do i put freon to a 1996 dodge stratus


Most auto parts stores and hardware stores have kits to refill your system. The instructions will show and tell you where and how to connect it. I would strongly suggest you get one with a gauge to make sure you don’t over fill. And a kit that includes the oil.
