Q: Air conditioner doesn't work

asked by on

The air conditioning stopped working.

The compressor may have failed and leaked out refrigerant from the front seal. The system would need to be diagnosed by a certified AC mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to check the compressor and the rest of the AC system for any other problems.
