Im not sure what tempreture it is at your house,outside.Most a/c compressors will run in cold weather but its not a good idea to do this.Unless you have a case heater,most do not.

The oil inside is very thick and hard to move, so the compressor will work harder and make noise.
If you suspect a problem other then this,chances are its low on freon and may have a small leak.

Low freon will cause a loss of cooling and noise.Only a cfc certified tech can leak check and fill the system back up for you.

Why do radiator cooling fans start when key is put in on position

Under normal operation, in low speed, only the LH fan is initially in operation. Voltage is supplied to the low speed cooling fan relay through circuit 60 BK/LG wire. When the relay is energized, voltage fed to the LH cooling fan motor through circuit 538 GY/RD wire. Ground for the cooling fan is through circuit 57 BK wire. After the LH fan has been energized for 5 -10 seconds the RH fan will start automatically. Voltage is applied to the RH fan motor through circuit 3829 LB/BK wire. BK wire circuit 57 is also the ground.
Under normal operation in high speed both fans should operate from the high speed cooling fan getting a command voltage on circuit 30 BK/LG wire. The relay energizes both fans through circuit229 RD/OG wire while the low speed fan relays are de-energized.
The fans will come on immediately when the airconditioning compressor clutch is engaged mode and when the vehicle is in Drive. OBD-II trouble codes are P0480 low fan 1circuit, P0481 hi fan circuit & P0482 medium fan circuit.

Full coolant level does not mean your engine cannot overheat. You need to fix the problem as overheating will destroy the engine if not addressed.

The radiator cooling fans must be working, as must the water pump. The thermostat must also be working properly.
There must also be no air in the cooling system as air locks will impair water flow. When cooling systems are drained fully or partially and re-filled air in the system must be bled out using the correct bleeding procedure for the particular engine/cooling system. Failure to do this properly will lead to overheating.

If you ONLY see the overheating warning when running your aircon you need to check that the electric radaitor fans are kicking in at idle when you switch on and run the aircon and the engine has been warmed up some. If they do not start operating when the a/c is running you will get an overheating condition in normal driving conditions.

If the radiator fans are operating normally and you still get an overheating warning when the aircon is on or off the most likely culprit is a faulty thermostat in the engine's cooling system which will need to be replaced.

If you have either a faulty thermostat or if the water pump in the cooling system fails you will get continuous overheating whether the aircon is on or off.

Need to check the condensor fan. If the fan quit working this could lock out the unit so the compressor does not over heat.

Sounds like it's low on charge, dirty coil. Is this a ductless unit or window?

Blueway air conditioner not fully cooling

Check the radiator for dirt, and check if the radiator fan is functioning. Do you notice any wetness or ice build up on the outside copper pipes. If so, suggest calling a refrig. tech. to add gas. The gas used is R22 on most aircons.

Panasonic Inverter aircon E24DKR icing up inside unit

Yes, if the filters are clean, the coils are clean, and it is still freezing up in cooling mode, then it is low on refridgerant.
