Finding the Issue
When your air conditioner fails, it will continue to blow air, but it will not be cold. The most likely cause is a refrigerant leak, but it might possibly be something like a faulty compressor.
In most cases, the first step in troubleshooting is to use a set of manifold gauges to examine the air conditioning system. A mechanic will connect the gauges to the high and low sides of the system, extract the pressure readings, and utilize them to assist diagnose any problems.
If the indicators indicate that the system is running low on refrigerant, a “evacuation and recharge” process will almost probably be suggested. The following items are included:
Recover the refrigerant lines
Get rid of moisture in the system.
Replace the refrigerant.
Introduce a dye to help locate the source of the leak.
It’s possible that a little leak can go undetected for months. While the vehicle is being fixed, the refrigerant may only last a few minutes if the leak is serious. In any case, the evacuation and recharge method will let us decide what to do next.
Even if you don’t have a leak, the method will allow the mechanic to evaluate the system as it tries to run in an ideal state, which will help them figure out what to look for next. Most A/C repairs will necessitate a recharge, therefore it’s usually a necessary fix anyway.
Is It Something Else?
An issue with the blend door or the blower motor could be another reason for a malfunctioning air conditioning. These issues frequently manifest themselves in a variety of ways. The blower motor could be the issue if your air conditioner isn’t blowing any air. A mix issue, which permits your heating and air conditioning system to flip between hot and cold air, could be the cause of your heating and air conditioning system blowing hot air instead of cold air. In both cases, the technician may need to start with an air conditioning evac and recharge to pinpoint the issue; your service consultant is likely the best person to speak with about your specific scenario.
