I would get it serviced by a contractor that works on amana so you can have your refrigerant levels checked filters replaced and a new belt if it has one

2010 dodge caravan ac gets cold then hot

2 things come to mind the first is are you stepping on the gas to accelerate when it happens this will be caused by a vacuum leak somewhere in the emissions or under the dash/ second are you standing still and you feel the air get hot if this is the case your cooling system is running hot and the heat is transferring to your a/c condenser and making it hot reducing the cooling effect of the Freon because it is getting hot itself

You've got some of the picture, but not all of it.
You need to know what the high and low side readings are, so yes you do need the gauge set. If the system is charged, and the low side is not dropping below 25psi, I would guess the low side pressure switch is faulty. But if the low side is dropping below 20psi when the compressor stops, the system may be low on freon. Which means you have a leak somewhere.
The hissing noise is freon flowing thru the system which could also indicate a low charge.

My fridge stopped cooling. the motor runs, but everything is warm. I have a bottom freezer Amana approx 4 yrs old. Is it worth fixing or should I buy a new one?

The compressor is working is a good thing ,you have leaked out some freon and it might be pricey to fix and I don't know with all the capturing of the gas ,recharging, only after they found the leak. Definitely get an estimate before you do anything ,but to answer you question is it worth it ,you'll have to weigh that out ,but a fridge is good for at least 10 to 15 years or longer. If not freon you could also have a thermostat problem which wont be so heavy on the wallet, get a guy out to diagnose it and see where you stand is all you can do.

Ac turns on and the fan blows air but not cold air. When switching from fan to ac mode i hear a buzz sound like it had switch to ac but still its not blowing out cold air. Any suggestions?

mcdevito75, Needs service either a chrge of freon or the need for a new thermostat and That is what it sounds like to me, (the compressor could be bad also, the buzzing sound) hope not expensive repair.

My neighbor has just bought a 97 Chevy S-10 pick-up and the AC will not stay cool. We've put the freon with yellow die in, but cannot find any leaks. The previous owner had the AC worked on but doesn't...

Even though you might not have any leaks if both lines feel hot it sounds like your A/C compressor is not pumpimg the freon through the system.

You might need to replace it.

I have a 2000 Celica with less than 67,000 miles that has been meticulously maintained and serviced. The AC has stopped blowing cold. It will blow cool when the temp outside is in the 70's though. (coller...

how long have you have the car? for the best of your knowledge, have you ever have the a/c system serviced?
well, the car is 10 years old, the freon may have been escaped slowly over time. freon is a gas so it will not be sealed forever. when the mechanic recharge your a/c he should injected ( you can ask him to do so ) some dye in the system then charge it up to the specification. if you have a large leak, your mechanic can find it right away. if you have a small leak then the dye will show up in a later time ( when the a/c stop working )

Ac unit starts cold than blows warm for a short period than blows cold intermitedly!

If your house is not getting cold enough when your A/C is turned on (because of your AC's intermitent cool-warm blowout), it is time for a good cleaning. There are a variety of factors that may cause your A/C to not cool your house. With that said, here is a diagnostic article that provides the most probable causes of your A/C's failure to cool your house, and from there you can read it and then, step by step, rule out each possible cause listed in the article:

Of course, a low level of Freon/refrigerant may be the problem, but there may be other problem causes as well, as noted in the article---it may just be that debris is obstructing your AC as well. Read the article, and, actually, your best bet may be to take advantage--towards the END of the above-linked article--of the text-link for Free four (4) quotes from local AC contractors in your area, and "pick the brain"--seek the advice--of these local technicians who offer you a free quote to discern what could be the problem. Also, since you may need a Freon/refrigerant recharge, you'll ultimately need this AC contractor to do it for you, since federal law prohibits the selling of Freon/refrigerant to anyone other than licensed AC contractors/technicians.

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

vulcan bonaire comfort control External natural gas electronic ignition 2004. ISSUE: Fan blowing only cool air continuously. Forced to kill power to stop it. model is one of the following. MB514E,20E or 30E. Going by mech drawing parts list. i can confirm what type of sensors i have cleaned with very fine sandpaper. flame sensor PN 5441603SP and IGNITER ELECTRODE PN 5441602SP The fault code i see is described as the following. There are x4 LED's. Sequence Left to Right. LEGEND: 1 Flame Sensor 2 Pressure switch 3 OverTemp 4 Diag. R Red G Green S Solid Colour B Blinking LED Behaviour. In order 2RS & 4GS Until i hear ignition. 2RS & 3RB Duration: split second 2RB,3RS & 4GB Duration: split second 3RS & 4GB Duration: Until it has completed blinking x4 times. 3RS Duration 4 seconds Repeat last two mentioned behaviour. in my own opinion, as a safety feature, the unit thinks that it has overheated or is about to. so kills the gas and force feeding cool air to heating components to save it from frying. Does this mean i have fault 04 if so does this mean i may have a faulty igniter or flame sensor or maybe a faulty as described in the mech drawing SWITCH OVER TEMPERATURE 120 degrees celsius. Am i correct here? Is this the over temperature cut out switch? if no one can really pinpoint which part requires replacement, can you at least, in sequence advise which parts to purchase? so then ill just try my luck. i wonder how to properly test if flame sensor, igniter, over temp etc is faulty with a multimeter. do i just perform a continuity test. I wonder what other parts can i test related to this fault im getting.
