Question about GE Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I can't get my air conditioner to work on my 1983 Cadillac Deville. I just had freon added and it worked great when I left to shop. Now I can't get it to work. I see no signs of freon leak. I suspect it is a computer control problem. How do I find out if it is computer problem?

Air conditioning will run independent of any computer in 1983. You have a freon leak, broken belt, or a problem with the compressor. The shop that serviced the sealed system should stand behind their work, I would advise you to take it back.

I have 1991 Cadillac Fleetwood and need to remove ac compresser

If the compressor locked up the chances there are metallic parts in the rest of the system are great. Flushing out the system is best left to professionals. If your system has not been converted from R 12 freon to R-134a freon, now's the time to do it. The oil in the R-12 system is not compatible with r-134a. If there is still freon in the system you cannot simply discharge it into the air.. The fine is huge. Have an AC shop do the work.

2003 cadillac DHS. a/c delays coming on until I have driven 2 to 5 miles. Then it comes on and works great. What would cause this delay???

normal for cars parked in the hot 120F sun.
the A/C most cool every inch of the vents down.
check the freon charge.
ask a pro to check it, any ASE shop is just that.

ask em.

Added freon - air conditioner won't come on

there are 2 pressure switches in the system 1 stops the ac compressor if there is not enough gas in the system and the other stops the compressor if there is too much gas . Next if there is a problem in the TX valve ( blocked orifice) then the head pressure will be too high and the compressor will not work. Next if you have not had the system checked for leaks ( why did you put more gas in ) then it has probably already been pumped out through the hole.. While you consider it a saving to do your own in the long run it is more expensive not to use an accredited auto air conditioner shop.

mcdevito75 here, either your son in law didn"t put in enough freon or the compressor is not working, Have your local shop check it out.

When I push the air conditioner or the heat buttons, the screen shows econo instead of auto,do you know what's wrong? The car is a 96' cadillac deville,the problem just started, last year the air worked...

There is a problem with the air condition,econ,means the ac is not coming on,check to make sure the freon has not leaked out.If the freon is fine,see if the clutch is engaging on the compressor,if it is not ,then check the sensors on the liquid line ,along the firewall,they can go bad and the compressor will shut down,check all this and get back to me.

Warm air blows out the left vents, and cold air blows out of the right vent.

i had a similar problem with a buick park ave with individual climate control, after about an hour of troubleshooting and checking vaccum and electrical connections we ended up adding about 1-1.5 lbs. of freon and fixed the problem.hope this helps,it fixed our problem.
