    Have new thermostat, but we will look for starter/relay capictor to see if that is the problem. Can bad overload protector be fixed? and/or starter/relay capictor be replaced?

Possibly three things, either a thermostat problem, starter relay/capictor, or a bad overload protector not closing after an overload. The starter relay should be behind a black box located on the side of the compressor.

    Yes, both the start relay and overload protector can be replaced and are located under the same cover.

Whirlpool ET18JK Not cooling, fan runs, compressor kicks on, blows hot air?


Easy tests, put your hand on the compressor, if it is vibrating it is running. Touch the two lines coming out of the compressor, if they are both warm then the valves are shot on the compressor, if they are just regular temp then you have a refrigerant leak, if one is hot and the other is cool then you may have a blocked cap tube, which means a $600 fix. If the compressor isn't turning on I would check the thermostat for bat contacts. When you set it to low there should be a small ammo unit of resistance and if you turn it off the meter should say OL. Good luck

A/C stopped working and blowing hot air. Is there a fuse to check?


In almost every case, when hot air blows while AC is turned on, it's an indication the system is low on refrigerant. This could be due to a leak in the system. There are do-it-yourself kits sold at most auto parts stores or a qualified service station can recharge your system (they have to check for leaks prior to recharging the system).

If you can hear the compressor kicking on and are still getting hot air, check coolant level. If coolant level is good and compressor is kicking on, you may need to change out your thermostat.

2002 Beetle 1.8 Turbo A/C quit blowing cold


You would have to measure the pressure to determine if it's pressurized correctly. The compressor won't run if it's low.
What happens when you push the a/c button? Can you hear/feel the compressor kick in? It seems like in most cases it's the compressor itself or the compressor clutch that goes. It's way too common in vw's...

Dodge Ram AC not blowing cold


By pass both pressure switches one at a time with small wire or a paper clip. If comperssor kicks on replace the swich that you bypassed.
if not it could be the fan clutch ot the compressor. Compressor runs about $400.00

Blowing hot air, compressor not kicking on, just fan ? ?


are you speaking of the outside fan or inside? compressor should be a little warm but not boiling hot. the unit could be low on freon. if low it will run a while but the compressor will overheat and shut off leaving the fan running by itself ouside. if nothing outside is running check power. if you have power check the contacted outside to make sure it's pulled in. contacters are bad about going out on goodman untis. Also ants can get under contacts.

Air conditiner blowing hot air


Check out first the drive belt if it is loose, then the electrical connection if it is loose or corroded. If that does not solve it, check the clutch assembly if it is working. Worse case could be a problem with the A/C motor.

98 accord ac not blowing at all


This is very vague. Is the blower motor working (can you hear blowing inside?), is it blowing but it's hot? Can you hear the compressor running (open your hood and listen if something is kicking on and off). AC is so complex. It could be as simple as a freon leak or as complex as a compressor, hose, accumulator etc.

Ths sounds like the outside unit or compressor is not kicking in, check for power to the unit at the breaker box, or at the bottom of the contacts!
