If its older than a fee years you may need to clean the outdoor coil. It may be shutting down due to high pressure. I couldn't locate a Google hit so I'm assuming its a window a/c? If so the "air entering" side of the outdoor coil can get dirty and you normally can't see this side until the unit is removed. But you can try to UNPLUG IT FROM THE WALL!!! And the take a water hose and spray from the outside of the outdoor coil. This will try and remove debris. Its always best to remove from window to clean if possible. If the outdoor coil gets dirty it will retain its heat instead of rejecting it to the atmosphere, and heat retension will increase freon pressure causing a high pressure/temperature sensor/switch to open.
Check you engine cooling fans to ensure they are operating. Whenever you have the A/C on they MUST be running in order to provide proper A/C operation and to prevent engine overheating. This may not be happening and could be causing your problem.
Did you replace the thermostat with an OEM part? All thermostats have a temperature they must reach before opening up to allow water flow. If you get one that opens too soon your vehicle will not get to operating temperature and if you have one that has a higher temperature rating it can cause the vehicle to overheat. Another possible cause is you may have a faulty water pump, blockage in the radiator or ports in the head, or your cooling fans are not coming on.
Hi. Generally, engine temperature will change when you turn on the AC since there are friction added to the engine. If your car goes to overheat then the issue would be the cooling system of the car. You may check these part for your cooling system. First is check the reserve if water/coolant ran out. If liquid rans out to the reserve then the problem could be the hose's or the radiator. Check for holes and possible cuts. Second is cehck the radiator thermostat. It might not functioning well. Third is the water pump, pump might not be working in good condition.
It is not a good idea to put a freezer in an unairconditioned garage. The reason is because freezers are designed to operate in temperatures of a typical home. It's job is to keep the contents below freezing. When it is in unconditioned garage, it has to work harder in the summer to maintain that temperature. So it will get very hot in these conditions and will use a lot of energy to keep your food cold than if it was in an airconditioned space. As working is such a tough environment, don't expect it to last as long as if it was in an airconditioned space. Hope this helps you.
Best bet have someone check pressure for year. Also if you still have a warranty I would send it in and let the dealer worry about. I know it is an inconvenience but hopefully they will take care of the problem.
