Air Conditioning System Failure: Symptoms And Causes

There is a tell tale sign that the air conditioning system is not working: no cool air. Even though the result may be the same in many cases, the cause may differ. In order to understand what is causing a lack of cool air in your car or truck, here are some common symptoms and causes of air conditioning system failure.

  • When the compressor clutch is broken the compressor will not engage

  • Mold or dirt on the cabin filter may cause strange smells to fill the cabin

  • Air which is not getting cold enough may be caused by a failed o­ring which is leaking refrigerant gas

  • Air will not freely flow into the cabin when the ventilation fan is broken

  • When the expansion valve is frozen there will not be proper refrigerant flow in the air conditioning system
