Sad to say, but you have to get a new condensor, what's more important you must get your lines flushed out, if not it will affect your compressor, then you're talking big bucks. See if a local guy can also add and auxilary fan to the front of your radiator, It will really help circulate the air and you'll have less wear and tear on your complete air con units. Also, make sure you change that air con filter. That little filter is also important. Good luck and drive safe. Hollywood Harv

SOURCE: a/c in jetta blows hot air, its been charged, compressor comes on.

you need to have it diagnosed by a professional. These are complicated systems even to a trained tech. You may be over or under charged, have a clogged expansion valve, have a leak or many other issues. This model has a rcv refrigerant control valve inside the compressor which regulates the pressure of the compressor. If you notice the compressor never shuts off like conventional auto a/c's do the only time the clutch works is when you turn it on or off. Can be complicated.

SOURCE: air conditioner blows hot air fully charged with

compressor or receiver/dryer or condensor may need to be replaced. Further testing will have to be done. Look into your sight glass and see if there is any bubbles in the glass, or if glass is extremely foggy. If so, you may have air in the system. Check to make sure you are getting power to the compressor.

Air Conditioner blows warm air in my 2007 pontiac g6


If there is not enough freon in the system there are safety pressure switches in the system to prevent damage to the compressor from lack of oil. First have the system tested for leaks and repair them before adding freon. The system should be evacuated with a vacuum pump for a while to check for seal leaks and to remove moisture that will enter the system .

Added freon - air conditioner won't come on


there are 2 pressure switches in the system 1 stops the ac compressor if there is not enough gas in the system and the other stops the compressor if there is too much gas . Next if there is a problem in the TX valve ( blocked orifice) then the head pressure will be too high and the compressor will not work. Next if you have not had the system checked for leaks ( why did you put more gas in ) then it has probably already been pumped out through the hole.. While you consider it a saving to do your own in the long run it is more expensive not to use an accredited auto air conditioner shop.

Air Conditioner Not Functioning


It may still be low on freon. It can hold several cans.
High side should be around 250psi and low around 35 or 45psi at idle if system is charged.
If you raise engine speed the low can drop below 20psi and switch off the compressor if the system is low on freon.
Could be a restriction in the system, bad relay, or bad a/c compressor-clutch.

Sounds like the compressor has gone out of your AC system. They are not too terrible to change, but can be time consuming depending on location. IF the freon is good, check the compressor and you should here it at idle speed w/ hood open clicking on and off as the clutch engages and disengages when the AC is operated. If there is no clicking on and off by the compressor, new compressor will be required. IF it gets cold when first adding freon, and then fades quickly, it is likely a leak in one of the high or low sides of the lines between the coil and the compressor.

Hope this helps!

2003 COROLLA S AIR CONDITIONER BLOWS HOT AIR.5 DAYS AGO MECHANIC "CLEANED LINES AND PUT IN FREON" FOR $135.00. STILL BLOWING HOT AIR.


If it blew cold air after freon added and 5 days later blew warm, you may have a leak in the system. Also check and see if compressor comes on if not you may have an electrical issue, relay for compressor,coil on compressor, etc.......

1995 j30 air conditioner just blows hot air. set to auto and no noise from compressor. happened all at once, working when car was shut off but not working when restarted. compressor going bad or a switch...


I would start with adding freon to system, from what you are stating freon is low. You may have a small leak, so use freon with leak seal, also use freon with gauge so you dont over fill and blow orings.

Today the A/C stopped blowing cold air yesterday it was fine, Nothing but hot air was coming our of vents


Look for leaks around the A/C hoses and compressor. You may just be low on Freon. When the pressure in your lines (amount of gas in your ac lines) is low, the ac will just cutout hence blowing hot air. try adding some freon.
