Question about Windchaser PAC9 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Fuse or Freon?

I have the same problem - unit worked fine for a long time then suddenly started blowing just air or warm air. Is there any way to check to see if it is the fuse or the freon? And is it possible to change either of these once they have been found the problem? Its July and it is HOT in here!

Yes, you can check for freon: you can force the compressor on using 2 jumper wires. look for the wires leading to the compressor motor. Disconnect these wires from the source (not at the compressor). Using jumper wires, connect external house power (120 VAC) directly to compressor and turn that power on. The motor should start. If the copper lines (or finned radiator) get cold, then your freon is ok. There is usually not a fuse in these units.

Hi I keep getting a ch 67 after the unit starts fine and runs for like five minutes fan on all units work during that five minutes any thoughts would be greatly appreciated


Low freon pressure switch is turning it off. As the coils cool down the pressure drops. As time goes on it will run shorter and shorter cycles. In warm weather freon 22 low pressure should be near 70 lb
410A freon about 150 on the low side

The air conditioner blows warm air the air compressor appears to be working when the air conditioner switch is turned on the unit is full of freon but the unit will not cool. I was trying to see if it...


First off, does your A/C engage the electro magnetic clutch on the compressor? Is your climate control all set to A/C function? Do you hear or see the radiator fan blowing at a high rate when switch is engaged? Do you see a constant flow of freon at the sight glass by the receiver dryer (little bubbles are fine)? This are just the basic visual test that a auto tech goes through so this might give you a gen idea of what to do easily on your own.

My 2008 F250 w/ auto air conditing will only blow hot air after the truck is out in the sun for a short time when it is cool in the morning it works fine..


YOU NEED TO ADD MORE FREON TO THE UNIT. SOUNDS LIKE IT NEEDS TOPPING OFF. YOU CAN BUY R-134A FREON IN A PACKAGE WITH A HOSE AT A PARTS STORE. DON'T KNOW HOW TO CHARGE THE UNIT , NO PROBLEM. OPEN HOOD, START TRUCK,TURN A/C TO MAX WITH BOTH DOORS OPEN RUNNING AT
NORMAL SPEED, NO REVING, THEN FIND A BLACK METAL PIPE
RUNNING FROM A SILVER DEVICE CALLED AN ACCUMULATOR.
THE PIPE WILL HAVE A CONNECTOR, JUST UNSCREW THE CAP
AND PLACE FREON HOSE WITH THE CAN CONNECTED TO IT AND
SECURE THE END OVER THE PORT VALVE. OPEN FREON VALVE ON THE CAN AND PLACE UPRIGHT AND LET IT SIT. WHILE INSTALLING THE FREON, FEEL THE VENTS BY THE DOORS OR
DASH TO SEE IF THEY ARE GETTING COLDER. WHEN THE VENTS ARE COLD YOU CAN TURN THE VALVE OFF ON THE FREON CAN
AND DISCONNECT IT FROM THE FITTING AND PLACE THE CAP
BACK ON THE VALVE. THAT'S ALL THERE IS TO IT. YOU CAN ASK THE PARTS STORE CLERK WHICH PORT IS FOR CHARGING THE UNIT IF YOUR UNSURE. THEY ALSO SELL R-134A FREON WITH A
SEALANT MIXED IN WITH THE CAN JUST IN CASE YOUR UNIT MAY HAVE A LEAK IN THE SYSTEM. REMEMBER, **NO REVING** NO
MATTER WHAT ANYONE SAYS. THE SYSTEM WILL NOT CHARGE FASTER. IF YOU WANT FASTER CHARGING THEN KEEP THE CAN WARM. FREON WORKS WITH AMBIENT TEMPERATURE WHICH
MEANS WARM DAY OR CAN IS FASTER THAN A COLD DAY AND
A COLD CAN. FREON MOVES FASTER WHEN HEATED.

Ac is blowing warm air in my 2005 sierra 2500hd duramax. Any idea


Your system has R-134 Freon in it. the 134 is made up of smaller molecules than the old R-12. The R -134 permeates through the rubber parts of the system. If the system gets too low on Freon, the compressor will stop coming on.(low pressure cut out switch). Have the system serviced with an A.C. machine that can vacuum, measure the amount of Freon in the system, and add the right amount. The machine can also inject die. Later the die will show up under a black light.This will show any leaks you may have.

Dash A/C only works at idle


Sounds like the pressures are to high. If you just had it serviced they may have put to much freon in it. also, it can have a partial restriction that can create higher pressures.
