My air conditioner is only blowing cold air on the passenger side. Both sides blow but only passenger side is cold. My compressor also short cycles on the low pressure safety. What would cause that?? I...


Hi, the reason for this is the location of the evaporator core, its on the passenger side, a low charge will cause the side nearest to core it to cool more. Your cycling of compressor concures with this scenario. Recharge system to specifications.

Air conditioner cold then hot


If the A/C blows cold at first, then gets hot, it may be because there is air and moisture in the system. What happens is that as the thermodynamic cycle of moving heat goes on, water in the system will freeze at the expansion valve, stopping refrigerant flow.

If you put a proper set of A/C gauges on it, the low pressure side would show zero or a negative pressure, while the high side would be >150... Usually low should be between 25 and 45, but because the system is frozen up, nothing moves, so the compressor is acting more or less as a vacuum pump.


Solution:
Have a professional evacuate the system, replace the receiver/dryer, add a bit of oil and then charge the system.

Air conditioner isn't blowing cold air


Could be a number of things...electrical connections causing the compressor not to run. Turn on AC and turn your thermostat all the way to cool...now visually check to see if compressor is engaged and not just free wheeling. Most likely you lost your refridgerant due to leak in the system...would need to find leak and repair then have your system re-charged with refridgerant. Best case scenario...your system just needs a charge of refridgerant due to not having enough.

99' Chevy Tahoe Air Conditioner not working


It doesn't blow cold air? Doesn't come on at all? What's the problem? If it doesn't blow cold after a charge, it leaks. Either on the compressor or in a line or both. To start at the dealer, a compressor is about $1200. That's what they told me. I have two leaks. You can buy remanufactured compressor on ebay for under $200. Or find a good shop (polar bear around here) with reasonable prices and have them do it for something in between.

If it no air is moved at all by your climate control system, the blower motor could be fried, the switch may have gone bad or a fuse is blown perhaps. If it moves air, but not cold air, recharge it and see if it stays cold. If so, great! If not, find the leak.
