The condensor has no moving parts. It shouldn't kick in. Do you mean compressor? If so, look for low freon, bad low pressure switch, bad compressor clutch, bad.....

Car boggs down when condenser fan runs

Hi Roger, I believe that you have more than one possible problem. The first is if the belt is not tight enough it will squeak. If the vacuum tubing to the relays controlling the up idle are broken or leaking the up idle will not work and as the drag caused when engaging the AC is substantial the engine revs will drop or can cause the engine to stall. If there is a problem with the AC compressor, it can also cause the symptoms you're reporting. The sound of the fan operating will increase with the volume of air circulated, which is normal, but I'm not sure what sound you're referring to? Regards John

I had my front bumper painted and now my ac only blows warm air and the ac compressor will not kick on.

The A/C condenser is mounted right behind the bumper so, unless the painter covered the condenser or removed the bumper before spraying it, he painted the condenser as well. This is bad because the condenser must have air flow through it in order for the A/C to work properly. Try to have a look at the condenser, it looks like a smaller radiator mounted in front of the radiator and behind the grill / bumper. If it is painted, go back to the paint shop and demand it to be replaced. Also, have the radiator checked to be sure it isn't painted because that'll run into engine overheating issues.

The ac wont come on

Open the hood of the car, start the car and turn on the AC, go and watch to see if the condenser kicks over and starts to spin. If it comes on, your AC needs recharged and inspected for leaks. If it never comes on, check the wiring, be sure the condenser has a belt.

My 1997 Honda Accord 4cyl. condenser fan began to run continuously (even after engine was shut off) after cycling the A/C temp. selector from hot to cold. I disconnect the condenser fan to avoid draining...

Sounds like the AC relay/switch is sticking on sometimes. Locate and swap this relay. Look at your fuse box lids for location or search online for the exact location. You also might have a leak in the ac lines or the AC condenser clutch is not engaging to kick the ac on. You should feel a slight power loss or hear a slight stutter in the engine when pressing your AC switch. This means everything kicked on. It's a millisecond before the ECU realizes this and kicks up the idle to compensate.

1998 Ford Windstar AC compressor

They get more than warm, but not excessively hot that you can't touch it. This can be caused by a faulty condenser fan motor, dirty condenser coil even low freon, which is my guess along with a dirty condenser. Check these two issues and if it's not the problem your compressor may be getting ready to die. because of internal issues with the motor windings. Make sure the fan is running to speed, clean the condenser and see if the larger copper pipe to the compressor is ice cold and sweaty, if not you may need freon
