CLEAN IT
take the case off.
look at all the filth in the back fins.
get that out without puncturing anything
or cutting your fingers, or breaking the fan, etc.

Use a hose and MIST spray.. a hard spray will bend the fins
Use 2 dull hacksw blades to straighten fins if many squashed.

Bonus: find the oil hole caps on motor, open, add oil (10w30 fine)
Reassemble.

Of course this wont work for punctured units, dead motors, compressors, etc.. but filt is your #1 A/C killer.

Get cleaning! Do it once a year, before it gets hot.

Airconditioner cooling not workign despite three


I would check the system pressure. You can buy a leak detector. I would check all the fittings on the lines, around the compressor, condenser, and evaporator.

2002 Buick LeSabre Limited. Airconditioner cools


The dual air on this car has two temp control motors that are electronic. You need to have the car scaned at a dealer to see if it has a code for the left temp feed back circuit. If so you will need to replace the temp control motor for that side.Good Luck
