Sounds like you have some small leaks in the bag(s). They commonly appear at the folds so sometimes (depending on how it is parked) the leaks are sealed/hidden by these folds. Spray some soapy water on them, if you see bubbles they should be replaced. Also be sure to spray at the bottom of the drier where it attaches to the compressor--air can escape from there and cause intermittent air to the bags. I just replaced everything but the height sensors on my '89----there is a small '0' ring in there that must be seated correctly.
Have to determine what is causing noise - could be a bad compressor Have to determine what is causing noise - could be a bad compressor Have to determine what is causing noise - could be a bad compressor
The system is very dirty from the first compressor that went out....... If you just replaced the a/c compressor without changing the expansion tube, the accumulator and flushing out the complete system then it will never work correctly......
The ac could be causing the problem. Turn the ac off, and watch the compressor clutch to see if it is not engaged. If it is then the compressor or clutch could be bogging the engine down.
the asiest way to see if it is working is to start the car, turn on the a/c, watch your compressor. you should hear a click than the center of the compressor pully will start rotating, if that doesnt happen you could be low in gas in your system, you can always fill it just to check
does the fan work? is the system charged with the refrigerant?
The compressor or it's pulley may be locked up or there may be something not aligned properly.
The problem could be the relay that goes to the compressor this could be faulted out causing the compressor to run constantly. However if this isn't the case then a quick check of the fuse may also resolve the problem.
It could be that the outdoor fan is not turning causing the compressor to overheat and shut down on overload or your outdoor unit may need to be hosed off. You could have a faulty run capacitor. If you do need a new compressor you have to consider the age of your unit, the need to replace the indoor unit, and your financial situation. The cost of a compressor is over 500.00 in my area, then you have the labor, refrigerant recovery, and misc charges. It could bring the total of the job to 1000.00. Complete change out could run between 5000 and 8000 depending on size of equipment and geographical locale.
first off you need to determine that i s the cause of your problem,, could be the clutch, hi lo switch, temperature control unit, or broken wire or fuse, if you determine the compressor internally destructed, the entire system refrigerant side is toast, everything along with the compressor needs replaced, plus add a high side filter, new receiver drier, orfice tube evaporator, condenser,and clean out the hoses unless it has a muffler, then they require it be replaced
Could be a loose belt, bad bearing in the compressor, malfunctioning clutch, lack of compressor oil... any of those things.
if the compressor dont come on when you turn on the a/c then your compressor could be bad, also there is a relay in the fuse panel for the a/c compressor is it has gone out then that could cause it if your compressor comes on then you might need to recharge your system
the a/c clutch is loose and is shorting out. the compressor and clutch must be replaced
MOST LIKELY A COMPRESSOR SHORTED TO GROUND IF 3 PHASE. COMPRESSOR START PARTS OR SHORTED COMPRESSOR- SINGLE PHASE. COULD ALSO BE CONDENSER FAN MOTOR OR CAPACITOR ASSUMING IT STARTS WITH THE PRIMARY COMPRESSOR. WITH POWER OFF, CHECK WITH OHMMETER EACH COMPRESSOR LEAD TILL YOU FIND SHORT (LOW RESISTANCE READING). IF THREE PHASE, IT IS POSSIBLE TO REVERSE MOTOR DIRECTION IN AN ATTEMPT TO FREE UP A FROZEN COMPRESSOR (RECIP ONLY, NOT FOR SCROLL IN THAT THEY ARE ROTATION SPECIFIC). ONCE YOU GET IT GOING OR HAVE COMPRESSOR REPLACED, FIND OUT WHAT CAUSED FAILURE AND FIX IT. IT WILL JUST HAPPEN AGAIN IF YOU DON'T. THEY DON'T JUST WEAR OUT IF MAINTAINED PROPERLY. lc
When you replace the a/c compressor did you also change out the receiver drier as well ? To recharge the a/c system the cost would be in the area of around $125.00 dollars if it was done by a professional a/c shop.
It could be several reasons. First, the freon level may be low. I would have the freon pressure checked first, or you can do yourself. Second, you could have a bad compressor sensor. Third, the compressor itself could be bad or you could have bad expansion valve. All could cause short cycling.
First make sure power is off...there is three leads that supply power to compressor...they should be Yellow Black and Red....make a diagram where these leads connect on your unit and then disconnect them...You will need a multi meter to check ohms of resistance...Yellow is usually the common lead...attach one meter lead to it...now touch other meter lead to black lead...should read somewhere between 1 to 4 ohms...now touch the meter lead to the red wire...should read somewhere between 3 to 7 ohms...next read from yellow lead to side of compressor...if you get any reading then compressor is grounded and needs to be replaced...if you get no reading there, reconnect lead and see if compressor will run...if it will not then if could be possible capacitor is bad...on some units they have start assist capacitors this could be bad also..replace these and see if compressor runs...if it will not run it will need to be replaced..if it does run use an amp meter and check load amps of compressor...
Fuses, broken wire, failed PCM, failed gauge.
If the compressor is not coming on at all it could be that you are low of refrigerant and just need to add some more.
If a compressor kicks on and off repeatedly, especially if it has suddenly started doing this, it is probably a sign that something is amiss. If you are talking about your home AC compressor, it would be wise to call an HVAC repairman to give it a check. It might just need cleaning, or Freon if it is that type of unit. You could save yourself a lot by fixing it before it needs to be replaced.
The key cylinder has failed and will need replaced/repaired.
yes it wont allow your compressor to run
Could also be a bad bearing in one of the belt driven accessories i.e. alternator, water pump, P.s. pump, a/c compressor etc.
