If it was a general AC it must be running on a vapor - compression cycle, it must be the refrigerant (freon) that might have leaked and ran low causing the compressor to pump less refrigerant and is working on a low pressure compression which will make the system's cut - off ratio more often and in a much relatively shorter intervals. try checking the piping system for signs of leakage and immediately have it sealed from your local AC technician to have the refrigerant refilled after running a vacuum to **** all the air that accumulated in the pipes for efficient cooling. Hope this helps..

Take care!

    Ther was a technican and he has vulled up the system. He sad lichts on front are working and you have to buy a new one. After this when hy left I put the airco on and it was working perfct till I switsch off.

Why is my airco not cooling?

I believe that error code refers to a defective Indoor Coil Temperature Sensor (Thermistor); probably an "open" or "shorted" condition.

You should look in the air handler( Where the indoor blower is located) or in the plenum (where the duct system originate at the air handler) for any dead and rotting rats. Residential central air systems are sealed (uses circulated air only) and do not use outdoor air.

Airco seems to blow hot air most of the times, but cold occasionally

Seems like the blend door is intermittent,Like you said in some cases it works fine,Either the blend door is intermitent or the cycling switch is intermittent this is located on the filter drier when this pressure switch fails the A/C goes intermittent

check the coolant level. If it is low the first thing to stop working is the heater.

If it is that low there is something leaking. A pressure check of the cooling system should help find the leak.

The airco system has completely stop working. The 4 position switch only work on number 4 and bring outside air (not airco) into the cabine

check fuses first - if ok.
check for refrigerant in A/C - if ok.
check switch and wires - it may be bad.

Not sure the specs of 134. But, at 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit your heat pump is not going to be working very efficiently. Now, the ice on the coil is another story. Possibly your defrost is not working BUT, you don't have backup heat anyways. Yes, you should have a low pressure error code, I don't think it's a refrigerant issue.
