SOURCE: AC Compressor clutch problem

Hi

This could be any number of things, low system pressure, chattering relay, faulty cycling switch, failed compressor, poor cooling, the list goes on.

I'm afraid this is a job for the professionals!

Very best regards

SOURCE: AC Compressor clutch

i belive this type of compressor only has one 10 metric bolt in the center, the others should be rivets if they are loose the cluch is gone, but most likelly the only tool you migh need is a snap ring plyers to remove the snap ring that holds the pulley behind the front disc plate, i hope and this help
but if not if i'm wrong then go to autozone or checker and they have this toll kit to replace the clutch and it is call loan tool
the sevice allow you to pay for the tool and take it back for a full refund, in other words loan tool, good luck

SOURCE: how do you replace the ac magnetic clutch on a 2005 corolla

Sounds like your A/C compressor coil is bad.I would suggest replacing clutch disc,pulley and coil or you can put a complete compressor assy. on which is a little more expensive.

SOURCE: ac compressor clutch does not engage

to prevent damage to the air conditioning system there is a "low pressure switch" located on the condenser near the low pressure hose (large one) .. if the refrigerrant (R134A) gets too low then the clutch will be blocked from activating by that switch .. you can have your system tested and recharged or you can do that yourself .. the R134A is available at auto parts stores .. some come with a gague that is required for proper charge .. if you dont already have a gage then yoiu will need that one ... recharge kits often come with instructions .. other less likely but possible problems could be a fuse or bad AC clutch relay. sometimes damaged wiring or bad clutch will be the problem but much more likely just low fluid ..

A/c clutch wont engage. the compressor and clutch are good i jumped the pins on the pressure switch,didnt work. i checked the relay.i jumped the pins where the relay goes and got it to engage.


there are two pressure switches in an ac system
one switch prevents the compressor from running if there is too much gas
the second is to prevent the compressor from running if there is insufficient gas
from what you describe , one of those switches ( most likely no gas) is the switch
check for oil dust around the fittings , condenser or have an ac specialist check for leaks and regas

Solution to a non-engaging AC clutch?


What you need to do is check the air gap in the clutch, if it is to large it will not engage, it can also be adjusted by removing shim washers or removing some thickness off a Washer....

Help 2008 ford fusion heater and ac stopped working


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

2008 Honda Civic dx rebuilt AC compressor always on regardless of controls


OOPS ! Now, it sounds like the A/C relay is constantly on. In the power distribution box by the battery, try swapping another relay for the A/C relay (which turns the compressor on), and see if it now stops. If so, buy a new relay. Good luck.

Air con pump not engauging


Hi:

You should verify that your AC system still has a full charge of refridgerant, and if it does,
The problem is most likely the AC clutch assembly on the front of the compressor.

Since the dash light works, and the fan turns on, there is power to the system, but the compressor won't turn on if the pressure switch says the charge is low, and if you turn the switch, and someone can hear a click of the compressor clutch solenoid, but no air, the clutch assembly is probably the culprit

AC Clutch engages as soon as battery is hooked up


Your A/C relay may have gone bad and has disconnected the power to the A/C compressor clutch.
Not sure where the relay is to your A/C, it may be in the fuse box but regardless check the relay and replace if it's seized. If you like in the mean time, you can always disconnect the wire harness to the A/C compressor clutch to keep the battery from draining and save your compressor from over heating.
Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted and be glad to help.

Ac not throwing sufficient cold air


I would try recharging the system. if the recharge doesn't produce could air, this will confirm a compressor failure.Inspect the clutch function. the AC clutch should click when it is engaging the compressors actions.
