The defrost control could be bad, and keeping the defrost heaters on, or, the door switch could be bad, and the light is not turning off when the door closes.
You could also have leaky door gaskets.
Check out my "Tips and Tricks" on how to check the door gaskets.
Let me know what you find.

    It could be the defrost sensor is bad if the coils have defrosted and the unit continues in defrost until the freezer hits 40-50 degrees (I assume F, not C, although either is not good.).

    If not the sensor, then it's the controller board.

  • Mark Egan Dec 12, 2009

    Substitution is about the only way. Start with the sensor as it's a relatively cheap part.
    If that doesn't do it, and based on all the information you've given so far, it's the board.

The Air Conditioner in my 2004 Jeep Liberty gets warm while the jeep is in Idle. It has a new Radiator, new Condensor and the system has been charged. Any Idea what the problem could be?

If it only gets warm when vehicle is at idle. The problem probably is something to do with the compressor check to see if compressor runs with car at idle. I believe the problem is that when the vehicle is at idle the compressor doesn't kick on enough to keep the coolant circulation but when car is at speed the compressor runs correctly

Have a 1990 buick electra....the 20 amp fuse which controls the air conditioning & heat area keeps blowing immediately once replaced. Any ideas?

Sounds like the coil on the a/c compressor is no good, to test it you need to unplug the compressor and check it again, if it doesn't blow the fuse then it's the coil, if it does blow the fuse then it's the fan blower. Hope this helps

The a/c on my 2010 Mercury Milan quits blowing after about 2 hours of driving. Any ideas?

Sounds to me like the A/C clutch is no good and out of adjustment.You should goto your nerrest junkyard and get a used assembly take the clutch off then you learn how it comes off and install it on yours the save the pump for later use if needed. The clutch should only have a .010 air gap after install between th inner elctro magnet and the clutch plate it's self.

Air conditioner not putting out cold air - had "freon" replaced - mechanic says radiator fan motor needs replacing ($500), but engine does not run hot - would this affect air conditioning temperature -...

Should have two fans one is the radiator fan and the other is the condensor fan .If the condensor fan does not come on then the ac will not work.

280zx turbo dies after it warms up

It is most likely you ignition control module, thats what is was with mine. It is located on the ignition coil not the distributor as in some zcar models. I bought mine for about 160 bucks, but before you go out and purchase one i would try cleaning the connection if it is corroded. If it is not corroded then you really cannot clean it and need a new one.

Our kenmore refrigerator/freezer went warm. We

It could be one of several problems -

1) Failed compressor relay
2) Failed compressor
3) Failed component in the defrost system
4) Bad door gaskets
5) Failed door light switch

Questions to answer -

1) Was the compressor (large black domed item with three tubes (one stubbed) at the bottom back of the frig.) warm or hot?
2) Was the condenser fan running?
3) Was there thick ice buildup inside the louvers of the back wall of the freezer?
4) Was the fan running inside the freezer?
5) Look up my "Tips and Tricks" article on testing your door gaskets.
6) Open the door slightly and look inside as best you can. Is the light on or off? Continue to open the door until you see the light go on to confirm the light switch is working.
Your response will give us an idea where to look to find the problem.

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
