For a r-22 refrigerant 68 psi on the low side while the unit is running. Otherwise you recharge with a refrigerant scale based on the weight specs on the service plate.

That is the TPMS warning (tire pressure monitor sensor). Check your tire pressure. The light/symbol is actually supposed to look like a flat tire.

Does a rubber nosed hackamore hurt the horse/pony


If you are a competent rider then you know that hackamore's use resistance or reverse pressure. The horse cause's the pain or irritation by his movements. Always ride with soft hands. Heavy handed rider's can cause pain with hackamores.

My compresor dont want to kikin


Which compressor are you talking about? The air ride or the A/C?

For the air ride, it has fuses and relays. All the door jam switches and cargo doors must be shut.

For the A/C, you would verify that the system has Freon before attempting to replace a compressor. A low pressure switch would deactivate the compressor clutch. The system would need to be Evacuated with a Vacuum pump and then recharged, It is not like changing a starter. After prepping the system, you may need to jump the low pressure switch to get an initial charge of Freon, then reconnect the low pressure harness to the cut-out switch.

You need some type of guage to measure the charge. When the system has enough Freon to let the Low pressure switch provide power to the compressor clutch; the signal will be restored to the compressor.

Compresor dont get current


Autozone.com has diagrams for free when you register your car on their site. You can test the low pressure cut-off valve downstream from the evaporator tank by disconnecting the harness from the switch and using a good size wire to loop into the harness.

If the compressor clutch kicks in, you have either low system pressure or a bad low-pressure cut-out switch. This is a test procedure. Even bypassing direct as you have done can risk damaging the compressor.

Besides Freon, compressors need oil, the right type, and a small amount. There are Freon cans which include an oil charge as well as sealers and conditioners to prevent or fix leaks. Remember that the system has a volume limit and more additives leaves less room for the Freon to work good.

If you have low pressure, it is possible that what is left is contaminated. Freon is a gas. Air is a gas. The system was suppose to start with Vacuum negative pressure by using a Vacuum pump(Loaner item). This means that total volume inside your hoses could be wrong. It is easier to understand when you consider the Freon changes back to a liquid and Air needs a much lower temperature to become a liquid. So you lose volume for the Freon to change back from liquid to a gas. It constantly cycles like this to make it transmit heat from the cabin to the outside.

I hope my solution is helpful.

I just replaced the Compressor in my Kitchen aid Ice maker. Charged it to 6.2 pounds of pressure but kitchen aid will not give me the pressures it is supposed to be recharge to. Does anyone know?


Before you charge the system with R-12 freon you should check it for a leak, as with your ice maker it has leak that's why the pressure suppose to be is not reach. It also be clean by flushing R-11 into the system. If you have friend that has technical skill in ref repair ask for help. Better if you find the leak sealed it.
Good luck friend.

How can i recharge the air conditioner? Where is the hose located?


Ok if you want to do a home repair in hopes of saving yourself a lot of money and with hopes your system is not in major trouble, here goes:
First step buy 3 types of 1 lb. cans of refrigerant R134a at a parts store, 1 can of leak detector freon combination, and if possible 1 can freon/air conditioning oil combination freon along with 1 can of straight r134a freon.
The store will sell you a charge hose with a cheap type of charge gauge attachment and fittings to attach to your system for the re-charge.
Providing your system is low on freon,First, with the vehicle running and the a/c on full cold, high fan, install the 1 lb. can of freon/oil combo first only charging through the low pressure side of the system never through the thin line high pressure side as the pressure from the high side can enter the cgharging freon can and explode it like a bomb,(this low side line is the larger hose and the low side charging hose fitting the parts store sells you will only screw onto the low side charge valve which is normally marked "low" on the top of the plastic dust cap that is factory installed(hand screwed) on the low side valve fitting.
Secondly after the oil/combo can is emptied into the low side and you of course are wearing mechanics hand protection gloves and eye protection googles, then and only then will you install the leak dector 1 lb. freon can combo.
Third you will install the last 1 lb can of r134a freon, however your vehicle will not allow the whole last pound of freon into its system by means of a pressure relief blow valve that will automatically blow off any excess pressure once the system over fills, the system typically holds approximately 2.75 lbs. of freon.
If you have successfully installed the above freon into the system it should be up and running providing the system is in fairly good working order, by that I mean it may have a very slow leak that allowed the freon tio originally escape in the first place causing you to refill it, and if it does have a leak the leak detector die that you installed into the system should leak out from wherever it may be escaping from, indicating the place of needed repair by means of a red or blue, or whatever other designated coloration the die gives out from the leaking area.
Please note: Not all home charging techniques typically work as there are many mechanical failure factors in an a/c system that may require a certified a/c technician to determine exactly why your system is not working should the home remedy fail.
I hope this helps you and remember to always work safe with eye and hand protection especially around freon gases which become extremely cold and can cause frost bite when contacting with the bare skin.

Is engine temperature badly affect AC compressor prformance ?provided that i bought a new compressor since 9 months but now stop function despite adequate fereon


It should not affect the A/C compressor. The A/C coils are actually in front of the radiator so the A/C should cool regardless.

Here's what you want the system to do. You want the Freon to maintain a steady pressure when the A/C is on. There are 2 pressure cutoff switches. 1high, 1low pressure. The compressor will cutout when either switch is tripped. This means a moderate amount of Freon is supposed to be in the system to avoid tripping the switches.

At this point your dryer tank will frost or sweat, the lines from the tank will frost too. The Freon can remove the most heat in this condition.

You can loan tools from Autozone or Oreillys with a deposit. You need to measure the pressure in the system and have the car windows rolled down and air on high to make it perform. Also use the correct "oil charge", the compressor will fail without oil.

Your compressor will not start if the pressure is below the Low pressure minimum. You may want to change the LOW pressure switch. If the compressor does not start, check the fuse or add Freon. The compressor will not run if there is too much pressure. Measure and remove Freon to cancel the high pressure switch.

When you have your pressure right everything should work providing the system was properly prepped before the Freon was added. Final note, the manifold gauges show TEMPERATURE variables for installing Freon. In simple terms, Freon is a gas that expands and if you add it in Cold weather it will expand and have higher pressure and be overfilled in Hot weather.

How to put freon in jaguar s-type


The compressor is located underneath the drivers area towards the front. Right beneath the compressor is the low pressure port and there's where you put your freon. You have to raise the car.. follow your owners manual for jacking... you should also use a hard jack for support since you will go a little underneath the front of the car... use alight. I recommend you get the freon 134 kit that has a pressure gage  so the you can see if the freon pressure         ( pressure high full or a problem with system ) or low and needs charging

Will only charge to 40 psi, is supposed to charge to 150


You may have a problem still related to the original reason it was reconditioned.

However, you should have a regulator that you set to the tank pressure you want to maintain. Most have a tool regulator as well and 40 psi sounds like that is what it is set for.

If you do have a tank pressure regulator and it is still not charging above 40 psi, then either take it back or pick up a new regulator for under $20 at Home Depot and replace the gauge you have now.

Also, sometimes the gauge will have a needle tilted so that one end presses against the glass, and if you tap the glass hard with your finger it will move on around to the correct pressure.

Finally, if you are not experienced with small compressors, look under your gauge and see if there is not a black knob that pulls out and pushes in to turn and change the pressure.

94 Saab 90 SE AC blows hot air


Hi Bill
Usually the clutch is frozen means you need Freon R-12, please go to the small glass window on the condenser to find out there is some white bubbling inside, if you have white bubbling means your AC lack Freon, but if you lost all Freon, the window is clear, so you have to check, I hope from there, you can tell the Freon level.
