A/c compressor stopped cooling,clutch is engaged,is it possible to have too much freon in the unit,,

The system needs to be vacuumed down with a recovery machine and the proper amount of oil and freon added to ensure proper operation. The system most likely has air/moisture within it and will not function properly. Have it proffessionally serviced for adequate operation

Replaced all A/C major components (compressor, filter-drier accumulator, and orifice tube) except condenser due to a seized compressor and failed clutch bearing. Flushed system and appeared to have no...

It sounds like you've done just about everything except to check if there is a bad or intermittent wire causing this or perhaps your low-pressure safety cutout switch is possible going bad causing the compressor to kick on and off?

Just added Freon to my Kia Sportage. Now the compressor cuts on and off every 20 seconds. What's going on?

the system might still be low or the cooling fan is not turning on and the high pressure switch is shutting off

My air conditioner works but does not cool . i have added freon the last two years and fixed the problem ,did the same thing this year but did not help .

When self adding freon after it leaks out you get air trapped in the system. After adding freon a couple of times the air expands not leaving room for the needed freon. To continue adding freon with air tapped will knock the compressor out pretty quickly, there's not enough room for both & the air is keeping the freon from being able to cool properly give the false indication of being low on freon. The freon you are adding has the dye added to assist in finding the leak since freon does not evaporate nor dissipate it its being leaked out. A black light will assist locating the leak. The best thing is to have the unit checked & serviced by a mechanic...he'll charge about $ 150.00 to check for leaks, remove the old freon...his machine will tell him how much air its trapped in the system by how little freon is removed. For the service fee he will replace valves & gaskets, where needed, correcting most leaks. After sucking the system down & recharging the problem should be corrected.

My Chrysler 1994 ac compresspor engages then dissengages. stays on for about 5 seconds it just was replaced 2010. and it sat for a year maby low freon how do i tell.

it actually may be low on freon, your best bet is to do a evac and refill with dye and sealer so you get all moisture out of your system.
good luck

Refrigerant got low and compressor shut off how do you get it to start to run again?

When you add refrigerant to the system the compressor will start to cycle again. The system needs a minimum refrigerant pressure to work so when the pressure falls below that minimum the compressor wont cycle. If your adding freon yourself make sure to have engine running and the ac on max with the fan on max. As your adding freon the compressor will start when the min. pressure is achieved, watch the pressure gage closely so you don't over do it. I hope this helps you.

Adding freon to the auto air conditioner, the

On that model,it will cycle on and off while you add freon.If it does not ,then the ac system might have a problem.The low side pressure switch is located on,or near the accumulator .Unplug the switch and take the wire end plug and connect the two plug in`s together(cross it out on the wire).This will make the ac compressor engage and you can charge the system,do not leave the wire connected,plug it back up to switch.If the ac compressor does not come on ,then have the system checked out.

My ac does not blow cold in my 97 cadillac deville but it does blow just not cold and its n ot the fuse what can i do?

You probably have leaked out your freon after so much time. Try adding some more Freon if it doesnt stay charged you may have bigger issues.

Air conditioner compressor short cycles and does not blow cool air

Sounds like the system may be empty. In that event you need to find where the refrigerant went (the leak)
