    Smells like burning rubber, squeaks, and blows hot air. Belt problem?

  • Anonymous Jul 31, 2008

    my air does the same thing. it usually starts to get warm when the thermostat on my mirror gets to 93 degrees. i've taken it to several different places to be looked at, and no one can tell me what's wrong because the cool air starts working by the time they get to it. they all tell me the same thing "there's nothing we can do unless we look at it while it's blowing the hot air." they last place i took it to told me that i should look at the compressor the next time it does it & if it's still running then we know that's not the problem. then it's narrowed down to a problem with the relay or something else.

Usually the compressor kicking on and off is an indication that you are low on refrigerant and the low pressure switch is "cycling" the compressor on and off. to verify this, locate the accumulator and/or the low pressure switch, pull the connector loose from the switch, jumper the switch with the motor running and the control calling for high cool, if the compressor kicks in and stays running with the jumper installed you need to "top off" your refrigerant charge. hope this helps

Hi I got a town & country 2006 When the A/C is on it blows nice cold air the after 30 sec to a min it start to blowing hot air. Thank You for your help. John"

First thing to check is the level of the Freon in the system. Probably has 134a in it. Open the hood and look for the air conditioner compressor. When you find it turn on the engine and look at it again to see what parts are turning. Then go turn on the Air conditioner and you should hear the compressor kick on, look at it again to see what new parts are turning and then wait to see what changes when the air gets warm. This is an indication that there is not enough 134a in the system and when the pressure drops on the low side of the compressor it shuts off.

2006 crown Victoria blows hot air with the air conditioner on the air condition lines are cold under the hood

sounds like the temperature blend door is either jammed or the actuator is shorted ou. when the temperasture control is moved you should hear the door guess is you are not hearing that..the actuator would be attached to the heater plenum behind dash/glovebox area...becareful to test the correct one as there will be a fresh air actuator and a mode door actuator as can determine which one is which by changing the positions on heater head from hot/col, floor/defrost, recirculate and fresh air settings..each setting will move its designated actuatror..the one not moving would be you temp actuator....have fun!
