Hello jpaul, I understand that your air conditioner is not cooling properly. Here are some simple troubleshooting tips to help resolve this issue:

· When was the last time the filter was cleaned? Restricted air flow from a soiled air filter can cause air conditioner to not cool properly. Make sure there is nothing blocking the airflow to the unit like blinds, drapes, furniture, etc which could restrict air distribution.

· Confirm that the condenser coil is clean and not restricted by any trees, bushes, etc since the coils could possibly be blocked or dirty.

· Verify that the plug is not damaged and try resetting the unit. This can be done by pressing the GFI plug on the unit.

· Do not use an extension cord.

If issue persists, I would suggest contacting an experienced service technician to determine the precise cause.

SOURCE: carrier air-v AC is not blowing cold air

There could be a freon leak, or just low freon levels. If this is the case, you have to call a certified a/c technician to recharge your system.

SOURCE: carrier RV AC is not blowing cold air, compressor

If the compressor is running and the air is cool but not cold it's probably low on refrigerant.

03 grand am ac wont blow cold air


Two things are very likely to be your problem. Freon or compressor. Turn on the ac on cold and see if the compressor is engaging, if it is and stops and goes or if it doesn't. try to check the compression on the low side of your ac, the smallest plug where you service the ac. Or take it to an ac professional to get it refilled or checked. Remember, just because its blowing air, it doesn't mean its working. There are fans inside the car that push the cold air inside your vehicle and most of the time these will work, but that's not the only part required to blow cold air inside your car, the compressor is what makes the air cold.

I'd have to say it's the blower motor. Does it blow hot air when the heater is on?

Air cinditioning wont stay on, it switches to heat and wont shut off


What do you mean when you say it wont shut off? is it blowing hot air or do you just feel a lite flow of hot air even if you have the settings to cold?

If this is the problem that you always feel hot air at low flow and the ac goes to hot air then i would say one of two things, first if you have the selector to cold and you feel hot air then there may be a problem with the blend door, this door move to allow hot or cold air, the door may be broken or just a bad motor that controls it. keep in mind if the ac system shuts down for any reason the air then will be warm, it will be about the same temp as outside and maybe a little hotter.

this problem almost sounds like the ac compressor shuts off and then you are getting the outside air which is hot, there are many reasons for the compressor to shut off, it could be the compressor clutch heating up and disengaging , this would be due to a bad compressor clutch.

another reason is the fans are not working, the best thing to do is when the system starts to blow warm check and see if the compressor is running, start engine and look at the front of compressor, with ac off the front of it will not move, and then with ac on the front will spin, check it out and let me know, if it blows warm air and ac is not working then it may be compressor problem but if you are getting warm air and the compressor is spinning then it may be a door problem.

This is hard to check with out testing the system, so i listed a few things to check and let me know the out come. also the ac blows cold for how long before it gets hot air blowing out of the vents, good day.
