Hi, I have True T49F. When I plug in the system runs, but the evap fans was run. Then for a minute the Compressor frost up. So what do I need to check? Please help......

The compressor will appear to freeze up if the evaporator fan stops running while the compressor is running. I would look for a defective evaporator fan if I understand you correctly. Fans will sometimes stop when they should be running. Defective fan does not always stop running when they go bad

My 2003 VW Jetta air conditioning is cooling for a few minutes and sometimes longer and then it stops cooling. The fan continues to run but the compressor apparently stops running.

Have you watched the compressor in action? The compressor is driven by the fanbelt which turns a pulley on the compressor shaft, but there's an electric clutch that disengages the pulley from the friction plate attached to the compressor shaft. You should hear a click when the clutch engages and disengages. Do you hear that? Can you see the friction plate turning with the pulley or does it stay in one position while the pulley turns? If if works for a bit then stops turning, you may have a damaged friction plate such that it doesn't engage with the pulley. Take your car to an auto A/C specialist and let them examine it. It's also possible that the relay that sends 12 volts to the clutch is intermittent and needs to be replaced.

A stuck contactor is basically the only reason why you wouldn't be able to cut the compressor off at the Tstat. Remove the low voltage signal wires from the contactor (powered by the Y terminal on the Tstat), if this doesn't stop the compressor, you need a new contactor.If this stops the compressor (open the contactor), then I'd replace the Tstat. The cooling issue can be caused by any number of faults, but don't be fooled into believing the compressor is running because the condenser fan runs. The compressor has a distinct dieseling sound while running. The compressor itself might be fine, but needs a run capacitor

Compressor wont stop running on my 1994 chrysler concorde

Could be a stuck relay or a problem with the clutch on the compressor.
Can you pull the relay or unplug the clutch to make it stop ?

Does not cool either side fan runs and compressor seems to run

2 possible issues. If compressor running, but not cooling - No freon in the system, or compressor valves are bad, not compressing freon. Ideal would be to check pressures on the system while its running. Could be some kind of restriction. most common problem i would guess low freon level. Here are 2 of my videos i have on my channel. first is leak found at evaporator coils. i used leak dye to find it, second video is replacing compressor, but had compressor completely down. installed 3-n-1 hard start kit, but compressor did not come on, so replaced compressor with filter drier. Hope this will give you an idea what to do next.

It is possible that the compressor psi as it is running drops below the tire psi creating a standoff. You must maintain air compressor psi over 110 to fill a tire to 110psi. Add air to your tire but stop when the compressor motor starts to run. When the motor stops then continue to add air until the compressor motor starts and again stop airing up the tire. Repeat as needed.
