If you included the kind of car you have,I could be more specific but all cars have a vacuum canister under the hood. some are round plastic and some are a tin can and most are black. There shuold be a vacuum line going from the intake to one end and a vacuum line out of the other that supplies vacuum to the interior of the car, There should be a one way valve in the canister or the line from the intake. This valve is not functioning and loosing vacuum in the resirvoir. If it is in the resirvoir which most are, replace the resirvoir.

this one is easy your switch the controls the vents is not working there is a flap the closes the defrost vents so that it goes through the other vents or there is a vacumn line that is controlled by the switch, and its leaking. The vacumn line is usually on the engine side of the firewall. It is a very small plastic tube comming out of the middle of the firewall at the top and it connects to a junction with other vacumn lines. See if any of them are disconnected.

Why does a 1995 ford bronco air conditioner stops blowing when gas is applied?

If the vents stop blowing when gas is applied, it is likely a vacuum problem. The vent system is controlled by vacuum, so when the engine is under load, there isn't enough vacuum to run the vents. How you test this is when the problem occurs, the fan will still be blowing air, however the flow of air will be out your window defrost vents at the top front of the dash. On a 1995 vehicle, it's likely just some of your vacuum lines are broken, and need replaced or repaired.
