Question about Metra Kia Din Mount Sportage/Sephia

Open Question

NOBODY in any articles on the internet has tried to explain why the freon is coming out of inside vents .Apparently according to the mechanic I go to the problem could occur by a leak coming from a small radiator under the dashboard that has to come out. (my car a KIA SPORTAGE 2009 Diesel) An expensive bit of work. We have replace the freon 3 times and nothing is leaking from under the engine bonnet. ANY IDEAS. Thank you

Air not blowing out dash vents

The evaporator coil is icing shut. Check the freon level and make sure there are no air leaks in the system.

Air blows cold in rear but warm in front vents.

If it is cold in the rear, that eliminates the "freon" part of the system. (It apparently has enough freon and the compressor is apparently working.)

So that leaves you with a blend-air door problem on the front A/C unit. That may be a blend-air door actuator, a broken blend-air door, or a faulty control head. (Proper diagnosis required)

I have a 1993 honda accord 10th anniversary edition, ok when i turn on the a/c the green light comes on and the compressor kicks on you can feel a change in the drive and the clutch engages i seen it...

Then your vent control is not working, since this is a 1993 you would be able to see the filter drier ice up on the enternal area.Also make sure the heater control cable is not engage

I have a 2002 honda accord ex and i have freon on the car's a/c, it works cold from time to time, I noticed that I sometimes have to turn off the a/c button and then back on and it later on starts...

Low freon is the problem. And if you have enough freon then the high pressure switch can be going bad. If the switch is bad replace the expansion vavle at this time.

2 month long issue...RUUD Achiever 1.5 Ton 10 Seer Heat Pump

Rather than have him replace the control board first, ask him to remove all the freon and weigh it. He then can reuse the Freon that came out of your system put back in at the exact charge that the rating plate calls for. He will add a bit more to compensate for any length of refrigerant lines from the outside unit to the inside unit. Now this will bring us to factory specs. If the unit continues to act up, then try another board. I am not a big fan of replacing parts unless other alternative ways have been tried. If he is not willing to try what you ask, why is he there? As far as if something is taking out the control board, have him clean and reconnect all ground connections and inspect the thermostat connections both on the inside unit and the outside unit. Is lightning a factor in your area?

This is a common problem when the AC system has a low charge.
If this is the case, you have a leak somewhere. Do not try to fix it yourself without the proper equipment.

I ad this problem fixed and it cost $35. Apparently, this happens when the Freon level is low for some reason. They refilled the Freon and now I have AC on both sides. Don't forget to replace the internal filter in the glove box.

Heating Element no longer working

Hi Paige
Expect to pay $30 for the kit. it's a 279816 and will take some level of mechanical and technical ability to locate it and affect the repair. This kit addresses 2 issues and should be installed by a certified technician. Your owners manual has a big WARNING!!! block saying what not to do, like Don't use plastic or foil venting. But nobody reads manuals anyway. Most likely you have an aluminum foil colored accordian style vent pipe. That's what caused your thermostats to burn out. Get your drier checked out by a certified tech for safety. Afterwards, keep that vent, clean clean clean and install a sure vent from Whirlpool 4396028. 16,000 homes each year have fires from improperly vented driers according to the U.S. Dept of Consumer Safety.
