Hi,
You will want to take the car to a qualified technician. This way they can find out if and where a leak may be. Then repair it and refill the freon. If you have any other questions let me know.
Thank you,
Lee

Ac condenser stopped working what are possible solutions


I am going to assume you meant AC Compressor as the condenser is basically like a radiator in that it cools the freon.

I would say that your freon is probably too low to kick the compressor on. This could be simple as adding some freon (With Leak stop(just to be sure)) would get it working again. The question is, why did it get low? Could be just age and it needs a little freon but usually means that there is a leak somewhere (Hopefully it is not the condenser leaking). Some leaks are small enough that you just need to add freon every month or so but they eventually get bigger. Look for oil around the AC connections and hoses. Could be an O-ring that has gone bad. Hopefully it is simply low on freon.

Charging air conditioner


There is a lot to doing the job correctly, but sometimes with luck you can get acceptable results with minimum expense and effort. It all depends on how much Freon is left in the system.
The repair for a system with remaining Freon in it is a different repair job from a system that is empty. The Freon pressure keeps worse things from happening. You will find a fitting to add Freon on the accumulator(black oblong tank) or on a line close to that part. With the engine running and A/C engaged; you need to check the Freon pressure with a gauge.
If the A/C compressor is not kicking in, the connector on the low pressure switch needs to be disconnected and jumped with a looped wire. Add Freon if you have low pressure. Note the pressure because the low pressure switch has a rated working pressure and weak pressure switches can cut out early.
Fill the Freon to a moderate working level. You want the A/C to stay working longer which it will do when it is charged between the high and low pressure limits.
But if you find that there is zero pressure in the system, at a minimum you need to rent or borrow a Vacuum pump and evacuate the system. Then add Freon with a sealer and a small oil charge. Operate the system and drive 20 minutes minimum to circulate the sealant. Check pressure after 24 hours and top off the Freon charge.
If the leak did not seal, you will need professional help and tools to replace the leaking part. There are leak detectors, but some of the fittings require special tools to change.

A/c problem


The A/C system requires pressurized Freon to work. As long as there is still some pressure remaining in the system, there is hope to solving the problem. A bigger problem is created when outside atmospheric air seeps into the system because it contains humidity and that type of air can be compressed, but has no ability to work like Freon. A complete purge of the system with an electric Vacuum pump would be needed after fixing the leak which caused the seepage.

But if your A/C has pressure, there is a chance Freon with a sealer could be added. What happens is there are 2 shut-off switches working from Freon pressure, a low and high range pressure switch. If you are low on Freon, an access port can used to add Freon.

You would attach a can of Freon with a sealer and follow the instructions for refilling the unit. There are some cans with a gauge and hose attached. Otherwise a guage set, called Manifold guages would be needed. In some cases, with extremely low pressure, the low pressure switch would need to be bypassed with a jumper wire.

The car engine must be running to do this. So care is needed to avoid moving parts.

Please rate my info.

My air conditioner works but does not cool . i have added freon the last two years and fixed the problem ,did the same thing this year but did not help .


When self adding freon after it leaks out you get air trapped in the system. After adding freon a couple of times the air expands not leaving room for the needed freon. To continue adding freon with air tapped will knock the compressor out pretty quickly, there's not enough room for both & the air is keeping the freon from being able to cool properly give the false indication of being low on freon. The freon you are adding has the dye added to assist in finding the leak since freon does not evaporate nor dissipate it its being leaked out. A black light will assist locating the leak. The best thing is to have the unit checked & serviced by a mechanic...he'll charge about $ 150.00 to check for leaks, remove the old freon...his machine will tell him how much air its trapped in the system by how little freon is removed. For the service fee he will replace valves & gaskets, where needed, correcting most leaks. After sucking the system down & recharging the problem should be corrected.

Just moved to AZ. and our ac does not work. when we turn it on it just blows hot air, clutch is not kicking in either, does that mean we need to get a new clutch or do we need freon or what.. thank you


You will need to add freon. Freon loss has most likley occured and if so, there is a leak somewhere in the system. The clutch will not engage if the freon level to too low.

The air conditioning doesnt work it just blows hot air even with the ac on. i dont know whats wrong with it if everything needs to be replaced or just something simple. i know nothing about cars


What I would try first is recharge the a/s system, your car came with R12 freon, that type of freon is impossible to get these days, so you will need a retro fit kit to convert it to 134A freon, the kit will have two 134a fittings that screw on to your R12 port, so that the 134a recharge hose will go on, the low side will be the one your add freon through, it will be the thinker hose of the two, the thin one is the high side stay away from that one, you will also need one can of freon (134a), if it works, it might work for a while till the freon leaks out again, then you will have to take it it for repair, but this way you know it's just a leak and every thing else works.Good luck, let me know if I can be of more help.

A/C on Honda Civic not working. Clattering noise


Most likely too much freon,freon is not always the answer,a bad condenser,or expansion valve,anything can cause this to happen,if there is too much freon,it will try and lock up.

Massage said low ref ac off what dose that mean thanks


that means low refrigerant available and the low pressure switch is preventing the compressor from damaging itself. You will need freon added to the system which in not uncommon since mobile a/c systems normally leak a small amount each year and eventually need topped off to work properly. Either buy some freon from a parts store or find an independant repair shop that will agree to just add the freon necessay to make the system work again. Freon necessary on most systems ranges from 1 to 2 pounds and freon bought in bulk by all shops costs $3 a pound and labor to do this is about a half hour so look at their labor rate and add a reasonable profit for the freon and this is what it should cost. If this helps please reply cause that helps me and good luck
