Air conditioner free on is disappearing we put free on in it with the die and it doesn't show a leak but it's not staying cool

ac units do not consume gas
they leak it out
the dye is only visible under an ultraviolet light and yellow lens glasses
an indication of leakage is an oil damp area on the pipe , fittings etc
there is a set amount to put in and it is done with pressure gauges
so best advice is to get in an accredited ac professional and have it fixed properly

Do you hear compresser start up noise. If so then please check it with a clamp meter and Amperage the Unit is drwing. If it is less than 8-9 Amps than there is some leakage in the AC and all the collent has leaked. So you got to get it serviced.

My car AC stopped cooling. it started working again after I refilled the gas but stopped working less than 24 hours after. So I suspect there is a leakage somewhere on the Evaporator

It could be a leakage, but maybe you are low on refrigerant (the liquid that goes into AC's to make them cool).

In both way you should see a mechanic.

1987 cxr si ac not cooling

The most common cause of your lack of cooling is no or low refrigerant charge in the system, in most cases this is due to the front shaft seal of the AC compressor on the engine leaking, if it is leaking you will see oil deposited around the front of the compressor behind the drive pulley magnetic clutch. Of course there are other places that leak and other problems that cause lack of cooling, but check for a lost charge due to leakage first.

I have a 2005 silverado (texas special edition 1500) Only on the driver's side - the air conditioner begins to blow hot air it happens everyday I turn off the pickup and then restart it this...

unfortunately this always seems to be due to the system low on freon. it feeds freon into the pass. portion of the evaporator core first so when it starts to get low you lose cool on the drivers side first. I would go ahead and have an ac service performed and dye added, that way if it goes low again the leak can be found with a black light that illuminates the dye at point of leakage..

My beverage air refrigator ri18 compressor turns on sounds like it works but doesnt get cold

1) Check the compressor working or not.. Air cooling type condenser fan may be not working properly.
2) Compressor working but not properly. Last side of condenser (Filter) Light Heat or not.
3) Inside Cooling area do not get cooling. may be gas leakage problem.
4) My opinion check Gas pressure Low and high side.

I had a new radiator installed in 1995 geo prizm & now only get barely cool air from air conditioner, which immediately prior to installation was ice cold. Mechanic is saying there's no connection...

ask him if he remove the condenser prior to install the new radiator?
have your system check for refrigerant level, if it is low, then it could have leaked out, or it was removed and not properly charged after installing the radiator, or they could have touched on the lines of the ac that made it leak some gas.

a lot of things could have happened.

tnx 4 using fixya,
