2006 Kia Sorento EX. I had this same problem. It started after I had the ac compressor replaced. At first it was intermittent, it would blow cold and then blow hot, blow cold then blow hot again until it just started blowing hot. Turned out it was the AC relay switch in the fuse box under the hood, I swap it out with the horn relay switch (they were the same type relay switch) the ac has been working fine ever since and the horn also works even with the bad relay switch. Go figure?

Not sure how you know if the freon is full without the unit running. There are a number of switches which can keep your A/C from coming on. There is a low pressure switch which is usually located on the larger line and sometimes located on a silver cannister (called an accumulator) which is the low side of a compressor circuit. There is also a high pressure cutout which is usually located on the back of the compressor unit. Both of these switches can be jumpered out to see if they are the reason for the compressor not working. You remove the two wire connector to either switch and place a small jumper wire between the two wires on the connector block. The other reason my be a low idle cutout switch and this will also usually be located near on on the compressor. You can also test it the same way as the other switches. If it is the low pressure switch then of course you will need to add freon which you can purchase from any auto parts store. They usually come with instructions and all the equipment needed to add in freon. If it is high pressure, then some of the freon should be recovered from the system by a technician. If is the low idle cutout then you will have to take it to a mechanic to understand why it is idling so low. Hope this helps.

    I was told by a mechanic that the spark plugs could cause the a/c to quit. Have you ever heard of this? Air was working fine, traveling on vacation, and it suddenly quit blowing cold air. The spark plugs do need to be replaced, but my mechanic had to order a gasket, and it didn't come in before we had to leave. We know that the freon is not full, but it does have some. Is this a quick and inexpensive fix, or can you tell?

Spark plugs don't have anything to do with the A/C system. I would like to think you are just low on freon. However do not over fill it it will pop the expansion Vavle then it will need replaced.

2010 SONATA BLOWS HOT AIR


Make sure the compressor is turning - check out the compressor clutch for operation. Also check the operation of the thermostat which turns on/off the clutch.

Sure the freon is in there? If you have a nasty leak it will come out as fast as you put it in. Also check the low pressure shut off valve. If stuck in the open position the clutch will not activate the compressor.

Air conditioner blows hot but freon is full


Your compressor could be faulty. Check to see if it engages when you press the AC button with the car running.

1995 Buick Century blowing hot air.


A mechanic would check the system with a set of pressure gauges. If the compressor is running, the low side would read around 30psi and the high side would be around 250psi. That is how you know if the system is full of freon or not.
You may have to get a professional diagnosis to proceed. If you replace the compressor, the accumulator needs to be replaced and a vac pump is used to pull all of the air out before the freon is added.

A/C blowing hot air 2000 CDX Daewoo


over filling it was a big mistake, so was guessing.
the freon is added by weight, from empty. not volume.
if the compressor spins, and no cold air , then its a big problem
the only tiny problem to cause this would be leaves packed in evaporator coil. (deep inside air box in cab)
take it to a shop before you damage the compression and fill the whole
thing full of metal chucks wrecking everything, at once $$$$
do not let the compressor run, if it dont get cold. do not.
get it serviced.

My lincoln mark lt pickup won't blow cool air


My lincoln had the same issue, first it was the A/C compressor (original). I replaced it with another one (used) and worked for 1 month. Then back to hot air. "A/C experts" told me the compressor was out again. I took it to a Mexican auto shop, old building where the guy works alone and to my surprise...HE FOUND THE PROBLEM!! There was no freon leaks, the lines were freezing cold inside the motor, checked freon>>full. He then checked the filter. This filter is on the end of the line where it is crimped that allows the freon to flow thru. Im no mechanic so explaining what it is, forgive me. I can only show you...the line is silver ad in front of you by the radiator, and its the same tube that goes to where you plug it to add freon. There is a filter that was clogged up and prevented the freon from flowing. He removed all the freon, vacuumed out the system/line, and replaced the filter for less that $3.00. Added freon and his cost was $80.00. Thank God for honest people who work hard for a living. I buy the parts, he replaces and I continue to give him my business. Other expensive auto shops with fancy buildings/prices My Lincoln Mark LT now blows arctic cold air!!!

2003 Tiburon air conditioner won't blow cold air


Most likely your problem is the same as mine, which means you have a crack in your air compressor therefore no matter how full you fill the freon it will always drain (or blow) right out. Solution - get a new air compressor. Try to find one in a chop shop junk yard type place if you can do it yourself.

Alternate problem - freon can lose its charge. You can take it to just about any auto store and get the freon charged up for about $70. If that doesn't fix the problem it is likely the compressor.

Freon is full but a/c blowing hot air

Ac compressor does not turn on when car has been sitting & it's hot outside. Works fine in the morning.


either the freon charge is about 1/3 low, or the expansion valve needs to be replaced. Freon is getting into the evaporator, but not in great enough volume to cool the air unless it is coming in cool to start with. check your ac charge, and if it is full, then have it emptied, change out the expansion valve, and recharge it
