First thing to do is check that the compressor clutch is engaging, when it is not working properly. If the outer pully is turning, as it does whenever the engine is running, and the inner part of the clutch is not turning, that could be your problem bad clutch or electrical connection . The inner and outer parts of the clutch need to be turning for the compressor to function. Have someone turn the AC on and off while you watch the clutch.
I'm Guessing that your talking about the A/C compressor, in which there are 1 or 2 wires going to the clutch. Disconnecting this wire(or 2) will disable the compressor clutch stopping the compressor from working.
the compressor was working and now it has stopped, the clutch spins free but when i put my tester to the wires that connect to the compressor there is no power and the clutch dose not jump on can you help.
The A/C compressor is clutch driven, when electricity is applied to a coil, it engages the clutch. Most likely the coil shorted out in the A/C clutch on the front of the compressor.
fuse,compressor clutch relay,wiring,system needs recharging,bad compressor
If the clutch disengages properly then the compressor should not be running. Most likely the clutch itself is bad instead of the compressor.
There is no clutch adjustment. The clutch is hydralic and therefore needs no adjustment. If the clutch isn't working correctly you most likely have to bleed the clutch line.
Possible causes could include: Failed air-con on/off switch. Wiring fault. Compressor clutch fault. Blown fuse. No gas in system. the clutch on the compressor has a fuse and it was blown. i soldered across the fuse and the clutch is now working. also if there is not enough gas the clutch will not engage as well.
The ac compressor clutch is mounted on the front of the compressor and is a replaceable part. However depending on the complexity of the clutch change out it may be overall better to change the compressor and clutch together.
The AC clutch is on the front of the compressor where the belt rides. When power is applied to the clutch it engages to turn the compressor. It is basically a magnet a/c compressor clutch is the ound thing on the front of the compressor with pulley wheel attached. this clutch is an electro magnetic clutch that when electricity is supplied, engages so as the a/c compressor is driven ,which can then pump freon thru the ac system
What specific kind of vehicle do you have? It does sound like the clutch may be bad, but we also need to know what you are working on. You need to run power straight from the battery to the compressor. If is still does not engage then you need to replace the compressor and clutch, they are dead. If they do engage, then you have a wiring or computer issue.
Blown fuse, low of refrigrant, defective compressor, or compressor clutch.
Best if you own a compressor, air tools keeps the clutch from turning. If no compressor, mount it in a vise to keep it from turning and remove each bolt, can be tricky as they are mounted together but turn seperately when activated.
No, it sounds like the compressor is failing.
If it has stopped working then you will need a new a/c compressor. Get out your wallet they will run you about $1200.
It should be right on the front of the compressor - usually the clutch is inside the v-belt/serpentine pulley on the compressor
Bad A/C compressor clutch. Bad A/C compressor clutch.
AC Compressor clutch relay may be stuck. Remove the relay and see if the clutch releases.
If it is working fine, and the noise is only when it is disengaged you should only need to change the clutch on the compressor not the entire compressor. If there is room to pull the clutch off on the truck, then there is no need to evacuate the refrigerant.
Blower motor working? Does clutch compressor pull-in? Was system evacuated prior to charging?
how do you replace the AC compressor clutch on 2006 liberty
The AC Compressor Clutch, more commonly known as a "Magneto Clutch", requires a special tool Usually the clutch itself is almost as expensive as the entire compressor, you'd probably be better off buying a new remanufactured one. But if you have your heart set on doing it yourself, find a Snap-On truck, and tell them you need a Magneto Clutch removal tool, it'll cost you about $150 for the tool (if I remember correctly when I bought mine a few years back). You're probably looking at another $200 for the magneto clutch. ANd the compressor probably costs about $250. The magneto clutch tool is self explanitory.
If the AC pulley is locking up when the ac compressor clutch engages, it's not a clutch problem, it's a compressor problem. But yes, the AC clutch can usually be replaced separately. The problem is, if the clutch is worn out the compressor is probably worn out as well. It usually isn't that much more to replace the whole thing.
My car is going through the same issue with the A/C. You CAN replace the compressor clutch without replacing the compressor, but the caveat is that you can't tell if the compressor is any good without a clutch. So basically you are gambling that the compressor will still be good by only replacing the clutch. Hope this helps!
You need special tools to remove the clutch, only a dealer or a/c repair shop has the needed tools to do the job. ( Besides the know how to do it correctly )
