Question about Heating & Cooling

2 Answers

AC unit blows cold air in the AM and hot air in the afternoon. Repairman has come out 3 times. 1st time added freon and worked for 1 month, 2nd time he said was compressor, a new compressor was ordered, came back with new compressor and said that is not the problem, added 2 lbs of freon again and it is currently working. He said to call him when it is blowing hot air again so he can see everything when it is blowing hot air.

Hi, Lets go up to Nov.20th,09. I was helping you on the problem of short cycling of compressor, and blower running and some other issues, I hope you get this but I couldn't get to you.You said it had a freon leak before? This leak should have tried to be located at the time, or as the other tech said, at least use a dye pack and UV lamp. E.P.A will fine you high on this!! Back to the other problem, remove all stat wires from board again. But I want to mention something. when it was cycling on and off but finally reached temp, your heat strips may have been doing the heating. Maybe low enough on freon to short cycle. After removing wires, if you have a short piece of stat wire, with all of the wires we need inside, even if you have enough slack to cut a piece off about 8" or so.The reason for this is so you can screw this piece to the board like the stat wires should have been. Strip the other end. We are bypassing the t-stat, & control wires. You have R, W2, E, Y!,B/O G, And C which is common, blue.Test with power on. Just 24V, it will not hurt you, trust me.Take the Red 1st to work with. The B and O energize the reversing valve. The valve is De-energized in the cooling mode, and energized in heating, so R, O or B use the one that when you touch it to R you will hear it energize, so, R to O or B.1st, which ever you use, move the other out of the way. Now, before you twist together we need to test the one we will use 1st.Use G for Fan.You will have to use Y1 for cooling, just to energize the compressor, but the reversing valve will be in heat so we are good. R,G,YI, & B or O. If nothing comes on, then bring in W2.You should not need common. If you touch it to R or any other, it will blow fuse or transformer.If you get it up and running, and you continue to cycle off and have the same problems, replace the board. If it runs fine for hours, then replace the stat. I am sure this will get to the bottom of the new problem. best of Luck,

You have a Freon leak because all the fittings, seals, coils rubber, compressor seals and entire AC system will need to be checked out by someone that can find the problem and resolve them or you will never get this fixed. A/C in cars get hot in the summer and cold in winter and all the seals dry out. The system needs to have all the air and moisture pulled out before any Freon in charged into repaires A/C unit or the system will not cool properly.That is the only way to resolve this Tammy, Thanks Sea Breeze

My lincoln mark lt pickup won't blow cool air


My lincoln had the same issue, first it was the A/C compressor (original). I replaced it with another one (used) and worked for 1 month. Then back to hot air. "A/C experts" told me the compressor was out again. I took it to a Mexican auto shop, old building where the guy works alone and to my surprise...HE FOUND THE PROBLEM!! There was no freon leaks, the lines were freezing cold inside the motor, checked freon>>full. He then checked the filter. This filter is on the end of the line where it is crimped that allows the freon to flow thru. Im no mechanic so explaining what it is, forgive me. I can only show you...the line is silver ad in front of you by the radiator, and its the same tube that goes to where you plug it to add freon. There is a filter that was clogged up and prevented the freon from flowing. He removed all the freon, vacuumed out the system/line, and replaced the filter for less that $3.00. Added freon and his cost was $80.00. Thank God for honest people who work hard for a living. I buy the parts, he replaces and I continue to give him my business. Other expensive auto shops with fancy buildings/prices My Lincoln Mark LT now blows arctic cold air!!!

Hello, if the unit is blowing warm air it could be due to 1) low airflow due to dirty air filter or evapoartor coil 2) low refrigerant charge 3) compressor is not engaging. check the filter first an let me know if it is clean

sounds like you have a leak concern if they are adding freon

however, it also sounds like a restriction in the system and/or a defective TXV

do you have pressure gauges... this is the only way to diagnose an a/c system without just throwing parts at the concern

2004 Mazda6 AC blowing warm air


too much freon is the same as not enough freon

Have an 04 mazda6 as well, AC seems to be the cars weakness. It takes 15-20 minutes till my car is ina driveable condition (Phoenix, AZ)

Take it in for a tune up, but I doubt the AC will be any better

AC blown warm air


This one is a difficult one to say. You could have a bad ac unit on the cars engine. Also when it goes back to 72 degrees your car is just displaying the temperature inside the car one of the features of a digital adjustments on these types of cars. Also you could have a leak and therefore not getting the cold air you wanted.
