Is this a burning smell. AC units sometimes have what they call dirty sock syndrome. The evap. coil has bacteria that puts of an odor. You have to have the coil chemically cleaned and sanitized to get rid of the odor. Rus

98 silverado ac blower only blows on high after it froze up after ice storm /motor or switch bad?


Sounds like the resistor pack on the heater case needs replacing. That's how you get lower motor speeds. Unplug it, remove it, and look for broken wires on the little pack. Some water or ice probably got around it and ruined it, giving you that smell of burning wires. Ice and water must have come through outside air recirculation passage.

Hello, if you have cleaned the unit, checked the filter , cleaned the coils then either the unit is low on refrigerant due to a leak or the compressor is not engaging due to a bad thermostat on the unit, bad capacitor, or the compressor itself is shot. If its under warranty i would take the unit back to the store and getna replacement.

pls. check your ac compressor magnetic clutch attached in front of ur compressor if its working/ ac clutch engage when u turn the ac switch on and disengage when u turn the ac switch off/ it normally makes a clacking sound when it engage with the rotation of ur compressor/ if its not engaging it means ur magnetic clutch is stuck up giving excessive load to ur engine thats why it overheats/ it smell burnt because its magnetic coil is fried/ or check cooling system of ur car might be that coolant is empty/ fan is not working/ radiator is clogged or thermostatic valve is stuck blocking coolant flow....

AC does not cool. Compressor kicks on and off (Humms when trying to start, electrical smell)


There are a couple possibilities:

1. If this is the first time you've started them for the season, one of the compressors might be seized up from sitting over the winter. In which case, new compressor required.

2. If you've just had the compressor serviced including recharging the system, it's possible that the system is simply overcharged. This will stop the compressor from working and giving you the same symptoms as above. If this is the case, you should have the service people come back with some guages and recover some of the refrigerant and the compressor should be fine.

3. If the unit has been sitting and there is a slow leak then there is not enough pressure in the system to allow it to run. The compressor will shut down if there is not enough pressure, but since you say there is a smell, i really doubt this is the case.

Most likely it's #1 or #2 above. If you haven't had it serviced recently, then yeah, it sounds like you're in need of a new compressor.

Good luck.
