Keeps blowing fuse


Most likely the clutch on your ac compressor has stopped working or the entire compressor has seized. The blower will still work, but without the clutch working correctly int won't cool like it should. While possible to replace just the clutch on a compressor, it's generally better to replace the entire assembly.

NEW AIR COMPRESSOR ON 2003 MERCURY SABLE AND ONLY BLOWS HOT AIR


Check that the wiring for the compressor clutch is connected. Have the system checked for the correct amount of gas as too little or too much will stop the clutch of the compressor. If the old compressor failed and the system didn't have a new receiver/dryer fitted there is every possibility that the tx valve is blocked. have the pressure in the system checked while running.as a blockage will switch off the clutch also.

A local garage mechanic says the clutch has stopped working on ac that is why it blows hot air instead of cool says it will cost $900. to fix cause I have to buy the whole ac unit does this sound correct?...


have you tried charging the ac system? most ac compressors have a pressure switch that will not allow the relay to engage the clutch if the coolant pressure is low. $15 can of r134a and maybe a $20 Haynes manual is well worth the price difference, eh?

2001 Chevy Tahoe AC stopped working


There is a possibility that the A/C compressor clutch burned up or got disconnected. Try investigating the wiring for the clutch.

My 2002 Expedition air conditioner will sometimes blow hot air and others cold air


I would check the following possibilities:
1. Is compressor clutch working? - You need to do this when the ac is blowing hot air only - locate compressor drive pulley on engine - rubber belt wraps around it. Start engine and set to max ac. When the ac is blowing hot air, look at the center of the compressor drive pulley using a good flash light - watch it for a while, it should be spinning with the pulley - this means the compressor is engaged. If not, the compressor is not engaged. If your ac is blowing hot air, then the compressor should be engaged and running (trying to cool). If it is not engaged, then your compressor clutch is probably going out. Could be low voltage to clutch, but more likely the clutch is worn out and only working some of the time. Note: if working normally, the compressor clutch will engage and disengage in cycles- but the air should always be cold. If clutch is bad, compressor would need to be replaced (sold as one unit). This is tricky to diagnose and could take some time - you need to do it when ac is blowing hot air but set to max cooling.

2. Low on refrigerant or refrigerant has moisture in it? If your ac blows cold initially after being off for a while, then heats up, and continues to regularly cycle back and forth between hot and cool air, then the system may be low on refrigerant or the refrigerant may have moisture in it that is freezing and restricting refrigerant flow. An a/c shop can check refrigerant level and even replace refrigerant if moisture is suspected.

Could be other issues, but I would start with these.

Good luck

A/C blows hot air


Hi, the first check you will want to do is on the a/c clutch. you want to make sure of its operational value. Turn the engine on and raise the hood. make sure the a/c button and controls are on as if you wanted the air to blow cool. while the a/c is in the on position, inspect the clutch action under the hood. the clutch should click in a cycle. this engages the compressor device. it should cycle on and off in a 3 minute interval. if this compressor clutch is not working and it is not clicking, this will be the main issue. a/c clutch failure.

Now, if the clutch is working and, it is cycling on and off in a quick motion, this Will confirm a low charge state and, you will need to recharge the system with a recharge kit or you can take to the local dealership or mechanic.

Ok, if the system has a good charge and the clutch and compressor are ok, this will confirm compressor failure. if the compressor cant do its job by compressing the refrigerant in a proper manner, it will not cool properly. it will spin but, it will not cool.

You will find the problem in one or all of the areas above. i recommend checking the clutch action first then, go from there. make sure the a/c in-dash switch is working as well. this is a problem spot.

Please rate and have a great ady:)
