Jump out the control, make the machine run constantly and recharge it.

Why isn't A/C working?

The AC unit on vehicles will not work if AC is not properly charged. Clutch will not engage. There is internal device that will not let the a/c start if under charged. System has to be evacuated and have fresh freon added to full capacity. Use leak stop and lubricants with the new AC freon.

Check all fuses/ relays for AC unit.

Use a freon gas sniffer/die tool to check for leaks.

Why won't my compressor on my dometic not come on?

It really makes no difference what the AC unit is in, it's still AC. I've come across this situation many times, and found that unit is just low on Freon. Once, and only once, I hound a loose thermostat connection at the unit, so the compressor didn't know it was supposed to come on. Nonetheless, Check the connection AT the unit. If good, you'll have to get an AC man to recharge it because the charge line end is soldered shut. IF by chance there IS a fitting with a plastic cap on it, like on your tire fill, get a recharge kit with connecting line and recharge it with ONE canister of Freon. Get the kit from auto parts distributor, remove the plastic cap from the AC charge line, open the piercing valve on the kit line and connect to the can. DON"T pierce the top yet. Connect the other end to the AC charge line finger tight, now pierce the top of the canister with the T-handle/knob AFTER starting the AC to suck the Freon into the system and screw the piercing pin back out part way to release the Freon. NOTE: To get all the stuff out of the canister, stick the canister into a bucket of hot water you took up with you. Once the canister is empty, remove the kit line from the charge line, trash the empty, hide the kit line somewhere in case needed again(won't have to buy another kit, just Freon bottles), put the unit cover back on and stay cool.

Recently recharged ac but now it started squeling real load when I turn it on

When you recharged the unit you may have not put enough oil in with the freon.

How do I engage my AC comp. With out no freon

Depends what kind of AC it is. If it is in a car, all you would have to do is supply 12v power to the A/C clutch coil. There will be a connector with two wires coming from the AC compressor. However, the "freon" (refrigerant) is what carries the oil through the system. The compressor would not last long without the proper charge.

The compressor in a fridge, water cooler, or home AC unit can also be powered directly. It will require 110v AC or 220v AC depending on the unit. Again, you would not want to do this unless you were creating a cheap vacuum pump for servicing AC systems.

The AC will not function as a heat pump without the refrigerant.
No cold air.

If this is a car, it is quite easy to recharge the system, and there are ways to do it for one a dollar or two.
Ask me if you need help.

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 long does the Briskair Duo Thermal ac run before it runs out of freon? I have medical issues and can't breathe over 70 degrees. I can't go out side. Does anyone know where to take the rv for freon? Can...

I would think your RV repairman could add refrigerant. Any heat and air company could do this for you. The unit does not have service valves in it and a port will need to be added. I have seen these units 30 years old and still holding the original charge. It is impossible to say how long it will last. If you need to add refrigerant more than once a year you have a serious leak that needs repaired.

I need t recharge the freon. It takes R22. Where do I charge this system? I pulled the roof cap off and cannot find and caps to recharge the system

AC's routinely are sold/installed without charging valves.

So, unless your unit has been worked on/serviced in the past it will not have any place to charge with freon.

Note: unless you've developed a 'leak,' it is unlikely that you've lost any freon, and in the event that you have - it will take a Service Tech to install valves and charge your unit correctly.

I would call a Service Tech to assist.

hope this helps.

I have a dometic duo therm roof ac unit that is low on freon - can the system be recharged?

It is a closed system, (ends are soldered) that said, a heating and cooling guy may be able to install fill valves and re-charge for you, but make sure you get a quote ahead of time. How old is the unit? Not normal for them to need re-charge, and I've seen them work good for 15 years, if maintained properly. Has it been completely cleaned recently?

My heat unit will not blow hot air unless we go outside and hit a button on the back bottom of the unit. Once we do that it will blow hot air for that cycle. when it is time for it to come on it is cold...

If it does not have a furnace or heating elements for heating, then it is a heat pump, which is rare for a central AC system, but makes sense of the fact that it blows warm air when you reset the pressure switch, which may indicates freon pressure charge problem if your AC system has a reverse valve and uses freon to for heating (heat Pump).

Do you get heating when outside unit runs? if you do, check freon pressure levels and top up to required pressures. The button you depress is a pressure reset switch ... that is if your AC system is a heat pump ... which, as pointed above, it is not common for central ACs.
