Q: Q: AC is not cooling

asked by on

My AC is not cooling.

There could be quite a few possibilities as to low or no cooling with regards to the AC system. Possibilities range from a refrigerant charge level, faulty compressor, faulty compressor fan, or another AC system component failure. An AC gauge set needs to be placed on the system and a full performance test run to help determine if the issue is a refrigerant charge level issue or a failed component. If the charge level is low then the system will have to be leak checked and recovered to determine is there is a leaking component. You may want to enlist the help of a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will have the training, certification, and equipment to diagnose and repair the AC system.
