This sounds like the compressor has failed. With AC in on position the compressor clutch should engage/disengage periodically while turning. A couple things to check before replacing this is the following.

1)Check the fuse panel to ensure there is power getting to that part of the sysem.

2)Check the wiring harness itself and make sure the connection is tight, free of dirt, debris and is in good shape.

If those two are okay, I would replace compressor and recharge the system and it should work properly.

Let me know,

Chip

The engine runs and the belt is in good condition and turning the pullies. The bottom pully is turning but is not turning the shaft? Could it be a broken sheer pin? How do I get the pulley off?


The bottom pulley is usually the crankshaft pulley, which turns all the other pulleys. If belt is turning the shaft has to be turning it. I assume you are looking at the air conditioning compressor, which has an electric clutch which engages and then turns the inner part of the assembly. If freon pressure is low it will not turn on. You don't want to take it apart!

Engine quits when ac turned on compressor unplugged


Knowing make model and year would help. Most newer vehicles, 2000 and newer, will adjust the idle control up to compensate for the compressor engaging. Possible there is an issue in the idle air control valve or electrical circuit.

1) TEST the fuse+ relar of a/c
see the next steps and fix it. God bless you
If so, the compressor is working and the A/C system probably contains enough refrigerant to make cold air, so the problem is inside the HVAC unit. Replace the motor that controls the blend air door (this is a difficult job and best left to a professional since it involves tearing apart the HVAC unit -- about an 8 to 10 hour job!).
If the compressor does not engage when you turn on the A/C, see if it will run by jumping the compressor clutch wire directly to the battery (use a fused jumper wire). If the compressor works when you jump it, and the A/C blows cold air, the system contains refrigerant and the fault is likely a bad A/C compressor clutch relay or a bad clutch cycling switch or pressure switch.
If the compressor does not engage when you jump it, the problem is a bad compressor clutch.
If the clutch engages but the compressor does not turn (the belt will start to slip and squeal), the compressor is locked up and you need a new compressor.
If the compressor clutch engages and turns the compressor, but the A/C still does not blow cold air, the system is probably low on refrigerant and needs to be recharged

Compressor isnt turning at all dont know if i need new one or if i need new clutch how can i tell


The pulley on the compressor is always running when your engine is running, but the only time
it compresses the freon is when the clutch engages, if the compressor's pulley was not turning,
it would have already snapped a fan belt or your serpentine belt. voltage runs from your fuse box
thru your air condition switch on your dashboard to a low pressure switch that is located at the
accumulator a long cylinder,close to the firewall under the hood or close to the condensor, front
of the car. the switch detects freon pressure in the accumulator, if there is freon pressure, the switch
will stay closed and allow voltage to go to the compressor clutch to engage it and compress the freon,
if there is no freon pressure the switch will open, and there will be no voltage to air compressor, its a
saftey switch to keep your compressor from getting damaged.its possible that the switch could be bad
it may not have voltage at the switch, or it may be open because there is insufficient freon pressure.
check and make sure there is freon in the system.check for voltage at the low pressure switch if you have freon in your system and voltage at the pressure switch, set your ac on high, pull the molex off
the switch, and jump it out with a jumper wire, if the clutch engages and your car starts to cool, just
replace the switch. if the clutch engages but does not cool, then your ac system has some blockage
in the lines. if the clutch does not engage at all then it would be the compressor clutch. good luck!

What would cause AC unit new belt to break? We are trying to fix our AC unit in our 1997 Dodge Caravan by putting a new belt on. We thought we had it fix but a day or two later the belt was gone.


Check the belt alingment. Something could be in the belts pathway that is shredding your belt. Also check your compressor to make sure it is turning when the compressor clutch is engaged. If the clutch is engaging and the comprseeor is locking up it will burn the belt or snap it right off. Also check your tensioner pully and make sure it is free spinning.

The AC system is making an purge noise not sure if when the compressor kicks on the belt slips or what because it only does it while driving not at idle. In the cab windows up sounds like purge widows down...


If it is a purge noise the highside pressure may be getting to high and relieving pressure.Usually this can occur if there is too much freon or a restriction in the ac system.The defroster utilzes the ac as well which is why you can hear this. From your description it sounds as if the compressor clutch bearing is going bad.

My kia spectra was making a loud squeeling noise and it has stopped but now my Air conditioner will not blow cold air ( only blowing warm to room temp. air)...is it my fan belt?


it sounds belt related. i am not sure if this vehicle has a seperate belt for the ac compressor, but if so, it sounds possible that the compressor seized and tore the belt off. have a look

Ac compressor will not engage when ac is on. System seems to be full of gas. Quit without warning. This is on a 2003 Nissan Altima with 2.5L. Secondary fan does come on when AC is switched on.


Check A/C compressor relay. When you say it seems to be full of gas(freon) have you actually put a pressure gauge on the system? If the pressure is too low, the compressor will not engage. If the compressor relay is functioning, check for power at the compressor clutch. If it has power to it and it still is not engaging, the A/C clutch may need replacing. It is usually almost as economical to replace the complete compressor with clutch installed than to just purchase a clutch. Keep in mind if you replace the compressor you should also replace the receiver/dryer also referred to as the accumulator.

A/c unit won't blow cold air


hi there is a belt that drives the air conditioning compressor it rides on a pulley as does the altenator visually inspect the pullies to make shure there is no belts missing if so replace now there is a relay that engages the compressor and also there is a low pressure switch that determines if there is sufficiant gas pressure in the system if the pressure has dropped re leak in the cooling system then you have no pressure to turn on compressor this would let the air conditioning to not work first check to see if you have airconditioning system pressure by looking into glass sight lens if lense is green its got enough pressure if its not green you need to replace gas inside cooling system good luck with project and keep cool
