This could be because you have a leak in you A/C system causing a loss of freon. When there is not enough freon in your system the A/C compressor will not engage, it will harm the compressor.
R-12 Convert it !! R-134
Yes, with both freon and oil for it to operate correctly and engage unless someone has bypassed the pressure switches or relays..........
Remove the freon from the 91 Buick Regal with a reclaim machine. Remove the compressor belts and disconnect the lines. Unbolt and remove the compressor. Bolt in the new compressor, and connect the lines. Put the belt back on. Pull a system wide vacuum, then fill with new freon.
Remove the freon from the system. Disconnect the compressor belt, then remove the lines. Unbolt the compressor and remove it. Install the new compressor, connect the lines and belt. Pull a system vacuum, then fill with new freon.
Everything takes a different form of Freon. Drain the system if it has not been so prior then add R134a Freon into the coolant system.
You can add Freon to your 2001 Buick Century air conditioning system through the low pressure port. The low pressure port can be found on the top of the air conditioner compressor.
Either low on freon or the low pressure switch is bad. You are gonna have to put a set of gauges on it. Usually this happens when the freon leaks out of the system. If there is not enough freon in the system, the low pressure switch keeps the compressor from coming on and being burned up.
It turns out that if there is no freon in the system, the computer puts out errors which in turn shut off the power to AC. Refill the freon and clear the errors either by tech or diconnect the batter for few minutes :) Learnin the hard way
If the A/C system is empty the compressor will not turn until you get enough refrigerant in it. Just turn on the A/C and hook up your can of freon. Once the freon starts filling the system the A/C clutch will engage.
Remove the freon from the 86 LeSabre with a reclaiming machine. Take off the ac belt and disconnect the hoses from the compressor. Unbolt the compressor and remove it. Bolt the new unit in place and hook up the new hoses. Pull a vacuum on the system and fill with freon
You will have to figure out why: This the 90% of the time failur: Is there Freon in the system, if there is not a minimum pressure, usually 17 PSI, the compressor will not run. Is the compressor and clutch capable of working? Is the fuse in good shape.
This is normal it does it to cycle the freon
A 1994 Buick Regal Custom uses 134a refrigerant, not freon.
Purchase a Freon recharge kit. Connects the Freon hoses to the ports on the air conditioner compressor. Release the Freon into the compressor.
The compressor wont turn if the freon levels are too low! It has a cutoff so if the freon all escapes the system the compressor wont be damaged.
There is a rely on the drivers side fender. It is the second relay from the front of the car. If it won't engage usually it is that there is too low or too high pressure in the system. Most of the times it it just low on freon and a sensor will not allow the compressor to turn on.
I would bring it in, and make sure you have enough freon in there. If the levels are too low, you will need to have it recharged before the pump will engage.
If you are talking about removing the freon in the a/c system then you will need a freon reclaimer.............
An AC compressor compresses the freon and circulates the freon through the system. An air ride compressor pumps compressed air into air bags to level the vehicle and/or alter the handling of the vehicle.
yes there is a seal on the front of compressor that can go bad and leak freon.
The service port will be located on the accumulator, the large silver can-shaped device underneath the hood. Inserting freon into the accumulator without the proper gauges measuring high and low pressure can damage the compressor and its components.
If it is too low on coolant the ac compressor will not engage. It is a safety feature to keep from burning it up. Try to add freon and as the pressure builds the compressor should kick on. If you are sure you have adequate coolant; it could be anything from electrical to a frozen compressor.
.You can remove the air conditioner compressor, from your Oldsmobile automobile, by removing the compressor belt. Remove the air conditioning Freon. Remove the Freon lines. Remove the retaining bolts
