The serpentine belt on my 1984 Buick Lesabre keeps breaking when turn on air conditioner or heater why?

Most likely you have a seized AC compressor. When you ask for AC or heat the AC clutch engages with the pulley wheel that normally spins freely when the AC is off. As the pulley wheel is no longer able to turn because of the seized compressor the belt will either slip or snap.

remove the serpentine belt. spin all the pulleys on the system and make sure none are seizing. check for any play in the pulley bearings. if you have a stethescope, with the belt on and the car running, put the probe on all the components and listen for any abnormalities.

1997 Buick Lesabre no power to the ac

that would be a good suggestion. the guy probably do not know what he is talking about.

on another thought, from where you buy them, dont they have a way to test what you are buying if it is good or bad?

original problem : no power going to the compressor.

solution: test first if there is refrigerant. there is a pressure switch in the system that would prevent the compressor form engaging.
there is a fuse that would break in case you have a faulty coil.
there is an ac relay that could break anytime.
and so many more......

the last thing to replace is the climate control....

tnx 4 using fixya,
