Common Air Conditioning Problems And Solutions
Leaks are the most common problem associated with the air conditioning,for instance,seals leak,and refrigerant leak.
•For seals leak,it’s not a big problem.Just buy a new seal and a seal installation tool.The first thing is to discharge the system when seal need replaced.The installation tool is a sleeve that fits over the shaft and protect the seal from installation damage.Oil the seal with compressor oil and slide it into place, keep in mind don’t knick the green rubber O ring.
•For refrigerant leak,which is caused by the age of the system,the metal coils can wear over time and develop small holes or corrosion on the coils because of exposure to contaminants.If there are many leaks,replacing the whole AC coil is the best and quick way to fix it.
Problem: Cool but not cold
1.Check the cooling fans on the condenser or radiator are running when the air conditioning turns on.
2.To See if there are any restrictions like dusts,dirt or other airborne material,which would keep air from passing over the condenser.
3.Check the cabin air filter to make sure hat it is not clogged.
Problem:The clutch does not engage even died
Solution:Jump the cables for the pressure switch,then check if the clutch start.If yes,it means that the pressure switch is bad and you only need to change the switch to solve the problem.If the clutch still does not engage, it might be a bad AC compressor clutch.You could buy an individual clutch then install.But sometimes replacing the entire compressor with a new aftermarket ac compressor replacement on hexautoparts can be cheaper than replacing an individual ac compressor clutch.
.Problem: Noisy air conditioner
Solution:Firstly,you need to know where the sound is coming from and what type noise you hear.Here are the four different noises.
•Mild Squeaking from Air Conditioner: It’s likely not serious,a bearing in need of lubricant or a dirty fan blade that is out of balance.
•Rattling from AC or Duct:It’s a small problem ,maybe a loose panel in need of tightening, or a loose AC duct.
•Grinding Noise :More serious than above two cases, a bearing is likely going to fail, and if not replaced soon, it could damage other parts of your AC unit.
•Hissing Sounds:It’s the most serious above three cases,if it is coming from your air conditioning unit, the most likely cause is leaking Freon.
Listen to your ears carefully,if it hurts your ears, Turn it off as soon as possible.If it’s hard to tell or you have zero mechanical skills,just to have a professional mechanic help you inspected.
•Please make sure the installation location is clean. Otherwise it will cause operation obstacles, even make the temperature of the compressor very high, and the belt on the clutch may melt.
•When adding the refrigerant, please add them to 70-80%, don't need to Fill UP. There may be noisy if the refrigerant is added too much.
•In order to avoid you buy wrong ac compressor replacement and could chose correct ones,please double check the Year,Make,Model and possibly even your sub model of your car as well as the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) Part number of your original compressor.
