Yes it means there was debris inside and now it all traveled together to the compressor pistons and locked them up must be replaced.

Cut your losses and use a different contractor. A reputable one should have resolved the issue the first time around and guaranteed his work.

What could be the possible cause of an A/C compressor not disengaging on my 97 F150?


check that the thermostat in the evaporator box is working as it controls the ac clutch action. If it is not functioning correctly (or the relay that it controls is faulty) then it will continually read hot air and not cabin temperature.

What energizes ac relay on 2005 freestar


The low side pressure switch in the AC low pressure line signals the PCM (computer control) to close the AC compressor relay and raise the idle speed. If the system is low on refrigerant charge the relay will not allow the system to engage the compressor, this is because the oil that lubricates all the works is suspended in the AC refrigerant, if that is low then the system gets no lubrication and will quickly seize up..

Engine dies as soon as I turn on the air or heat.


If by heat you mean defrost, it could be a seized AC compressor or compressor clutch, since the AC compressor is also engaged when in defrost mode to remove moisture from the air.

Try turning the flat, round plate on the front of the AC compressor by hand (WITH THE ENGINE OFF!!) If turns with only a little resistance, the compressor is most likely NOT your problem. If it not turnable by hand, then your compressor is seized up will most likely need replaced.

A/C pulley bearing seized


Is it seizing with the AC on? Or Off? Or both? If it is seizing even with the AC is on and off then this is an internal issue with the compressor, replace the compressor. If it is only doing it while turned on and is still blowing cold air then replace the clutch pulley.

The a/c Compressor Does not turn on.


There is also a low pressure switch that is incorporated into your AC system. If you have lost to much R-134 the compressor will not engage. This is to protect the compressor so it does not seize up from lack of oil. Your AC system also has ester oil in the system to lubricate the O rings and seals to keep them soft so they seal. You can jump the pressure switch to override the low pressure. If the clutch on the compressor engages then you have a low charge in your system. Or, you can place a manifold gage set on the low and hi side of the system to see what pressures you are running. If you don't know anything about head pressures then don't attempt this process. Good luck.

AC Compressor seized up


Go to the parts store tell them the issue and ask if there is a shorter drive belt that will allow you to bypass the AC compressor pulley
