Q: AC damaged and not working

asked by on

My air conditioner is damaged and doesn't work at all.

Hello. Your A/C system has several components that can cause the air conditioner to be damaged and not work properly. You could have a bad A/C compressor, condenser, evaporator, receiver/dryer, orifice tube, high pressure, or there could be a leak in one of the A/C lines. If your air conditioner is not working at all, a complete diagnoses would be necessary to pinpoint the problem with your A/C system.
