What would cause a Air Conditioning unit to freeze?

If the unit is used to cool a hot room (above 75 degrees) and the thermostat is set at or below 60 degrees, this would cause the condenser coils to freeze and damage the compressor. That is why it is recommended to cool a hot room gradually rather than expect instant gratification out of your air conditioning unit. Typically when an Air Conditioning unit has been frozen, it requires a service call to repair the compressor due to the damage of the refrigerant not flowing and the compressor overheating.

What would cause the air conditioning to cycle on-off every 10 seconds in a 2000 Ford Ranger 5 spd V6 3.0L engine?

The compressor cycling on-off is usually an indication of low refrigerant level, which in turn means that there is a leak in the system somewhere.

THE air conditioning compressor on my 90 corvette shuts off after running a few seconds any ideas whats wrong?

The refrigerant level is probably low. When the compressor turns on it pulls refrigerant from the low side and as soon as the low side pressure drops below a certain point, the sensor disengages the AC clutch. If you haven't already converted your AC to 134A, now would be a good time. All vehicle AC compressors leak a little refrigerant, simply because of the design of the system. The system may not have any serious problems even though it has lost a little pressure.

Why would the air conditioning stop working when car stalled in pooled water?

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.

What causes my 1999 expedition air conditioning to blows warm air?

If the heat is on that would explain it. But if you are running the air conditioning, the compressor is on and fully charged with r134 it is probably the air mix door inside the heater stuck in heat mode.

What would cause your ac to stop working and start smoking under the hood when you were driving in a 1994 Saturn sc1?

Most likely, your air conditioning compressor is cooked or its pulley clutch has seized. Hopefully it was the pulley, because the compressor is not cheap.

Why would the ac be blowing warm air if there is freon in it?

Are you referring to automotive air conditioning systems? It could be a faulty compressor. It could also be a malfunction of the air door, which mixes air from the heater and air conditioning to provide finer temperature control.

Why would the air conditioning work fine but not the heat 1994 corvette?

The heater core is blocked. The heater core works of circulation of the radiator fluid, while the A/C works off ciruclation of the freon.

I'm assuming you mean the air conditioner compressor. Even if you have front and rear air conditioning in your van, you still have only one compressor. If you can tell us the size engine you have it would narrow the answer down a lot.
