Usually you get a horrible noise,once the compressor starts...May be the instant the compressor starts the voltage drops down and so it doesnt blow as strong as you expect... If u expect a comparitively heavy blow then adjust the thermostat to 20 degree celsius...Try this,I hope this works out...

When I turn on the air conditioner sometimes it makes a chattering noise and continues to make the noise and other times no noise.


Sounds like a problem related to the a/c compressor clutch, or that the freon level is too low, and it is starting to damage the internals of the compressor. If when it works with no noise, it is not cooling the cabin, then the compressor is definitely shot. i have seen in a few instances that taking apart the compressor, cleaning it, and replacing the oil, it reduces or stops the clattering.

Air conditioner makes noises after it starts


I do not think that the battery change and the noise for the a/c is related, probably just a coincidence.

If the a/c makes a loud noise when it is turned up, I would try switching to vent to see if the noise is still there. If it is, then it is the ventilation fan likely located on the firewall or under the dash under some plastic paneling.

There is no reset button for the a/c.

Good luck on this repair.

Air conditioner problem 2001 Dodge Pickup


Hello, It sounds like your hot/cold blend door actuator is either hanging up at times or it's loosing it's calibration range because it's starting to go bad. The ticking noise is most likely the actuator trying to close off the hot air port but is unable to stay closed allowing hot air to mix with the cold. If it's just a weak blend door actuator, it will act up more when the air is on full because it has more resistance due to air flow. If possible try to see if the times it acts up decreases when you start the A/C with low fan speed.

Air conditioner blows hot air


there is a mode controller/actuator in the passenger side area(behing glove box) that will make clicking and rattling noise when failed but I cant say it makes a "horrible" rattle but it is quite audible clicking and clearly is a noise coming from inside the left dash area

RE: 2001 Nissan Altima air conditioner


Sounds to me like you need the alternator idler pulley. Look at it and see if it has a big washer covering portion of the pulley, or if the washer is inside the pulley. If its inside, than you have an old pulley. Replace it with the one, that has the big washer in the middle of pulley. You do have another idler for the A/C compressor. Those I have seen fail also. But 80% of the time its the alternator idler pulley.
