Is the compr. turning on at all? if not check fuses and relays, also check low pressure switch, with test light, sit on accumulator, see if it has voltage in at less one of the wire's, if it does get a paper clip and jump it to the other wire, should turn compr on, if compr is turning on it's has internal damage.

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.

A/C compressor noise

It could be the compressor or maybe the clutch has gone bad. to pinpoint the noise take off belt that goes to the compressor and then run the car and see if the noise is gone. If it is then you need to look at the compressor. If you have a gage you can check if there is any Freon left in the system. If it is before you replace the compressor you will need to take to shop to have it removed it is unlawful to let the Freon into the air.

The ac is blowing out only hot air

  1. Have your A/C's Freon pressure tested. If it is low, have it charged with new freon.
  2. If your Freon is at the correct level, your Compressor or Compressor Clutch may have gone bad.
  3. When you turn your A/C on, can you tell if the compressor kicks on? Usually you will feel a slight shudder from the engine, or you will hear the RPM's slightly raise and then level out. The temperature blend door may be stuck (if a/c compressor kicks-in)

A/C suddlen stopped working. Fan blows but no cool air

The simplest piece to check would be to see if the relay for this electrical system on the vehicle has gone bad. If it hasn't, take it and have the pressure checked to see if there is any freon in the system. If there is freon in the system, and the relay is still good, that means that the low pressure switch has gone bad on the a.c. system, which will cause the clutch on the compressor to not turn on.
