Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

2007 Hyunda Sonata air conditioner is blowing hot air. We checked all of the fuses and it didn't make a difference. Checked refriderant level and it is reading too high. Auto store said if the compressor it not on it will read too high. Compressor will not kick on but there was no noise or anything indicating that the compressor went out. Help!! It is too hot for this!

SOURCE: Compressor Fan stop working

Do you have a meter? Either the fan is bad or the capacitor is bad. Ohm out the fan and then the capacitor. Be sure you take the disconnect out of the electrical box on the side of the house and or trip the breaker off. The capacitor is a dual run one side operates the compressor and one side operates the fan. I would really bet on the capacitor being bad. Have seen that a lot in my experience. Be sure to make note of the wiring of the capacitor before you take it out to check and if you are not sure how to check it take it to the parts house and they can check it.

SOURCE: Blowing hot air, compressor not kicking on, just fan ? ?

are you speaking of the outside fan or inside? compressor should be a little warm but not boiling hot. the unit could be low on freon. if low it will run a while but the compressor will overheat and shut off leaving the fan running by itself ouside. if nothing outside is running check power. if you have power check the contacted outside to make sure it's pulled in. contacters are bad about going out on goodman untis. Also ants can get under contacts.

SOURCE: duo therm air conditioner that the compressor will not start

your switch should be oopen but when it reaches 41 degrees it should open so the system shuts off before it damages the compresor by sludging it, i have the same unit and my compresor runs for 5 seconds and shuts off, i checked the amp draw at the compresor and it draws 21 22 amps trying to start after the initial 5 second run, but it wont come on againts a load so the comprresos equilizes and tries to start over again with out positive results. i bipass the external obverload on top of compresor terminals area, still no fix yet, the relay on the control board continious to send power to the compresor and still draws , so if there is a problem with the control relay i would open up and dont send power to the compresor so i dont think is the relay, i am a a/c service man for
35 years and do this for a living still today, by experience i think it is the compresor gone bad but will try by passing the relay just to see what happens, also it could be bad capacitor since it have a hard start relay and start capacitor (black )also a run (silver ) capacitor they check ok, there is no way to check the charge unles you install a saddle tap to check presures and rechage this unit i think the compresor replacement is the way to go ( around 250) plus labor and freon r22 e mail add

Only way to tell if A/C Evaporator Core Orifice tube is plugged is by looking at A/C gauge readings , An if it is plugged you more then likely need a new compressor , they become plugged with metal particles from worn out compressor. Your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop .

How do I find the Fuse Box on a 2008 Chrysler Sebring?

I doubt the issue is a fuse. If the blower is blowing, then the issue is hot air. You ably need to have your ZC re-charged Freon but first you need it leak checked. Both these require special equipment. Go to a place that does only auto AC. They will know what they're doing.

My air conditioner blows warm air when stopped and idleing

Possible problems.

Air conditioner blows warm air?
Possible solution, system may need to be recharged.

You also wrote, temp light come on, gauge reads hot.
First check coolant level, always check this first.
Next, check your radiator hoses.

Next, have your thermostat checked, or change it. Their rather inexpensive.

Good luck.
