The a/c will not turn on on ?


Most a/c systems require a certain amount of freon to be in the system before the compressor will be allowed to engage. If your system has leaked down below that point, you might need to add freon. Hook up a gauge to the low pressure side to see if the pressure is low and add freon if necessary.

How do I add freon to my ac compressor?


unless you are licensed to handle freon don't. there are some big fines for releasing freon. also if you are not experienced there are safety concerns!!! Is this a home hvac or car? Now with that said you have to add it on the suction side of the compressor.You will need to know the correct type of freon that goes in your unit which can be found on a tag on the unit. You will also need a set of ref. gages to monitor the low and high pressure sides of the unit. it also needs to be added to the outside unit service ports (Home). You need a set of ref scales so you know how much ref is being added. Too much ref and you start pumping liquid. Too little ref and it doesn't cool like it should. If its a car you still need the above equipment. still goes in the suction side.If you add to much ref you can lift the safety pressure valve and dump the freon in the car system. Each type of ref has a pressure you want to see on the suction side and hp side. since they differ with each type ref. you will have to look it up possibly on the internet. If suction pressure goes below 32 degrees you may freeze any condensate the unit makes and have another problem. Hope this helps you but its not as simple as hooking up a ref cylinder and just adding freon. their are many thing that can go wrong and damage equipment or hurt yourself.safety is the first priority.

A/c comp not kicking in


Hook up A/c gauges, see if you have freon in the system, if to low the compressor will not engage (add freon), check power to compressor.

I added a can of freon to my 2006 impala and the AC will not stay on the light cuts off


Get a freon charger with a guage and make sure the unit is at the right pressure when running. If the unit starts and then stops you usually need to add freon because the compressor is running dry because the charge cant keep up with demand.

Add freon slowly and be sure the ac is on. A small puff....and wait to see if compressor comes on. When it does you can add until the guage reads in range. Try to keep it in the mid to lower end of the range. Believe it or not the fuller units dont run as cool!

Be careful! Adding freon too fast to a compressor can cause "slugging" and can damage the system!

How do you replace the compressor? Is there an online mannual? 2003


Physically changing the compressor is easy. Just two freon lines, a belt, one clutch wire, and a few bolts.
But first you need to capture the old freon, which needs a vacuum pump and tank.
It is technically illegal to just vent it, and it is dangerous because of the pressure and cold. (wear eye protection and gloves)
You also need to add the right amount of the right type of oil, depending on the type of freon (a 2003 should be R134a).
But instructions should come with the new compressor.
Then you need to add the correct amount of freon.
If you saved it, then you just put that back in.
Otherwise the instructions should tell you how much to add.

2005 Altima 3.5 air conditioning blows warm air at temperature over 85 degrees.


All three of the above answers are incorrect. There is no need for freon to be introduced into the system, if the system is fully charged. If you do this, and follow the above advice, you will damage your AC compressor. What you need to do is get the vehicle hooked up to a set of refrigerent gauges at a local competent service center, and the pressures will tell your competant mechanic what to do next. NEVER 'add freon' if you are not 100% sure that the system is low.

My a/c is not blowing cold air. The compressor does not kick on when I turn the a/c on. I have tried adding freon to it but it does not allow any freon to enter the system. I have checked all the fuses and...


The compressor probably isn't kicking on beacuse it is low on freon. It won't take freon when you try because the compressor needs to be running to draw it in. Sounds like a catch 22 doesn't it? There is a low pressure switch either in the filter/drier, or on the low pressure line. If you unplug the switch and hook a jumper between the two pins, the compressor should kick on, allowing you to add freon. Hope this helps...

Air conditioner not working


First check if the compressor comes on at all when you push the A/C button inside the car while it running. if the RPMs don't move at all, it's probably not coming on.

Also, check all the fuses and make sure they are okay. Your user manuall will give you the location of the fuse.

Next, check the freon level. When there is not enough freon in the system, it will automatically keep the compressor turned off so it doesn't burn it up. One way to see is to add some freon to your system and see if it kicks the compressor on. You can buy a can of freon at any walmart, and you just need a hose to hook up to your "low side" on A/C system and add the freon while the car is running and the A/C is turned on. You will hear it "kick on" when it has enough pressure in the system.

If that works, and a few days go by and it quits, you probably have a leak somewhere.
