A/C compressor blows hot air

A/C compressor comes on but blows hot air, think it might be the fuse, but dont know what fuse goes to it. I know where the fuse boxes are located but I don't have a diagram since I don't have the owners manual. I had it checked for Freon(?) and the guy said it was full and that the compressor was fine, the cluch was fine and that the thing that rotates the belt was fine (sorry, I don't rememmer the name of that part). He said it was a fuse issue or a relay. And that I needed to find a Mechanic the worked on the electric system? Any advise to help me keep the cost under control? Thank you.

If the fuse is the problem it's located under the hood near the relay inside the rely box but I think you have a problem with the blend door not the fuse, if the compressor is turning and the fan is blowing then it also most certainly be a vacuum motor not functioning.

Air cinditioning wont stay on, it switches to heat and wont shut off


What do you mean when you say it wont shut off? is it blowing hot air or do you just feel a lite flow of hot air even if you have the settings to cold?

If this is the problem that you always feel hot air at low flow and the ac goes to hot air then i would say one of two things, first if you have the selector to cold and you feel hot air then there may be a problem with the blend door, this door move to allow hot or cold air, the door may be broken or just a bad motor that controls it. keep in mind if the ac system shuts down for any reason the air then will be warm, it will be about the same temp as outside and maybe a little hotter.

this problem almost sounds like the ac compressor shuts off and then you are getting the outside air which is hot, there are many reasons for the compressor to shut off, it could be the compressor clutch heating up and disengaging , this would be due to a bad compressor clutch.

another reason is the fans are not working, the best thing to do is when the system starts to blow warm check and see if the compressor is running, start engine and look at the front of compressor, with ac off the front of it will not move, and then with ac on the front will spin, check it out and let me know, if it blows warm air and ac is not working then it may be compressor problem but if you are getting warm air and the compressor is spinning then it may be a door problem.

This is hard to check with out testing the system, so i listed a few things to check and let me know the out come. also the ac blows cold for how long before it gets hot air blowing out of the vents, good day.

Blows hot air do not think compressor is running


Check if the AC pump clutch engages (clicks in & out). Also check the fuse for it to start with.

A/c blows out hot air


Hi,
I had a similar problem with my Corolla. My compessor clutch wasn't engaging when I turned on the AC and the fuse was good. I suspected the worst and prepared to face a replacement of a compressor, but found out the fault was an AC relay switch.

This link from Autozone, will give you a picture and price of the switch:

My relay switch was located under the hood. Check your users manual.
I hope this is your fix... a compressor is costly!
Good luck...

Air conditioner not blowing cold air. We put coolant with gauge reading 25 lbs pressure. We think the compressor is coming on. The pipe coming out of the compressor is cool but, the air coming into the car...


Is the air actually blowing into the car?But it's just hot?It sounds like your blower motor is not turning to blow air.you have a fuse,check the switch that controls the blower,and the blower motor it self.

Ac blowing ht air, compressor not coming on


Check the fuses/relay for the compressor. If good, bypass the pressure switch. If the compressor comes on, there is too little internal pressure. Have the system evacuated and recharged. If the compressor does not come on, it could be bad.
