Air was blowing out of my vent as warm air when air conditing was on and now the compressor is broke. i believe it was originally low on freon and because air conditioner kept running, the compressor blew out. Can this happen ?

Yes, it can. Some compressors have a reset button that trips when they overload, and you have to push it in to reset it. Look for it near on on the compressor. If it triggered, you could have another problem.
This site has some good information on compressors:

This site shows you how to clean the coils:

It's possible your coils need cleaning, so try that first.
If the problem persists, the compressor might need charging and service.
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

The freon is fully charged but the air keeps getting warmer until there is no longer any cold air. It still blows air but it's warm. Does this sound like the compressor is bad??


do you have to recharge it after it starts blown warm if so its just got a leak and leaking all your freon out if its holding all freon then compressor must be bad

the a/c system could be low on freon but not to low so as the compressor stops working this can cause your problem.you don`t say if the compressor cycles constantly as this is another indicator the system is low.

My air conditioning went out to where my vents do not blow air when the AC is on.


If it is blowing warm air then you need to add freon to the compressor. If it does not blow air at all then you have either a blown fuse or a bad fan.

Air conditioning blowing out warm air was blowing out cold air gradually over a week it became warm


The Air-conditioning needs to be re-gassed. Take the car to an Auto Mechanic to get the Air-Conditioning re-gassed. They might also need to check it for leaks to make sure the gas stays in.

2004 Mazda6 AC blowing warm air


too much freon is the same as not enough freon

Have an 04 mazda6 as well, AC seems to be the cars weakness. It takes 15-20 minutes till my car is ina driveable condition (Phoenix, AZ)

Take it in for a tune up, but I doubt the AC will be any better

Air condition blows warm air


The A/C system has a pressure switch will keep the A/C from running if the freon is low. It prevents damage to the A/C compressor from low freon.
My bet is you'll need to recharge the freon in the A/C system.

2003 bmw 325i a/c front vent


hi gc, if you are getting cold air and warm air out of different vents with the a/c on, I would recommend having the a/c freon checked. if the system is low, it can cause cold air out one side and warm air out the other. if it is low, the system should also be checked for the source of the leak.freon has oil in it that keeps the compressor internally lubricated and when freon leaks out, moisture can get in the system.
