No one knows the value of air conditioning in the car like the people of California. If your AC condenser or compressor isn’t working as well as it used to, call Fremont Foreign Auto to get a replacement service scheduled. We will get your AC running in top shape and you back on the road.
Your car’s AC system has several components, each of which can fail differently. Please remember that only trained and certified professionals can handle the chemicals in automotive refrigerants. We have technicians ready to handle any aspect of your car’s AC repair.
Read on to learn more about six reasons your car’s air conditioning might need repairs, and call Fremont Foreign Auto when you need to keep cool in the car.
- Blocked AC condenser
Unlike the other entries on this list, a blocked AC condenser isn’t necessarily a sign of impending repairs, though it will stop your AC from working. If your air conditioning is only blowing hot air, look under the hood to ensure no debris blocks your AC condenser. If it is, clear it away and try the AC again.
- Refrigerant leaks
Unfortunately, a refrigerant leak can happen at any point in the AC system, so it can be hard to pinpoint the cause. Luckily, our trained technicians know how to spot the leaks. While you may need new hoses or connectors, our technicians may use a sealant to close the leak.
- AC compressor failure
If your AC compressor fails, the cooled air in your system can’t move. Compressors can go bad after long periods without use. After sitting unused all winter, your AC may go into shock when you start it again. To help prevent issues with your AC compressor, try to run it on full blast for at least 10 minutes once every three weeks or so, even in the winter.
- Faulty cooling fans
If your car’s AC cooling fans aren’t working properly, your condenser won’t cool properly, and your car will push only hot air through the AC. Debris from the road can cause cracks in your cooling fan, and the only option is a replacement. If your fan looks fine, have your technician check for blown fuses or another potential electrical issue.
- Electrical issues
Electrical issues can be difficult to diagnose, but a skilled technician should find the problem. If a visual inspection shows frayed or broken wires, ask your technician to repair or replace them.
- Broken AC condenser
You likely need a replacement if your AC condenser is freely getting airflow and still doesn’t work. A broken AC condenser is usually due to equipment failure.
