What Happens When An A/C Actuator Goes Bad?

What Happens When An A/C Actuator Goes Bad?

What Happens When An A/C Actuator Goes Bad?   You might be thinking to yourself, what is an Actuator? We have had a few vehicles come in with this issue, that can range from a quite difficult job, to one not so intricate. Depending on your vehicle make and model this might be an extensive repair, in other cases, it could be a quick fix.    An Actuator or Blend Door Actuator, is a small electric motor in your vehicle that runs in forward and reverse motion to move the Blend Door/ Air Mix Door between fresh air and re-circulation modes, hot and cold air flow, and floor/defrost modes. The Actuator is what actually went out with one of these vehicles. So, the Blend Door was not swinging back and forth, causing the hot/cold airflow to be minimal. In another vehicle, we diagnosed a similar issue but the Actuator was working correctly. The ... read more

Why is my Car A/C Not Blowing Enough Air?

Why is my Car A/C Not Blowing Enough Air?

  Why is my Car A/C Not Blowing Enough Air? Why is my Car Air Conditioning Air Flow Weak?   Recently, we discussed what might be the cause of your vehicle's A/C not blowing cool air. But, let us talk about what the cause might be from your vehicle not blowing enough air!    One of our client's recently came in with this complaint. One that could be coming from a multitude of places of the Air Conditioning system. This problem happened to be coming from the A/C Evaporator. The A/C Evaporator is commonly called a "mini radiator". The Evaporator is part of the Air Conditioning system in your vehicle that works alongside with the blower fan and compressor. A dirty Evaporator is a common cause for weak air flow into your vehicle.    In this case you should run the A/C on recirculation, so it is not inhaling the air from the outside. If you live or work in a more agricultural area, th ... read more

Why is my Car A/C not blowing cold air?

Why is my Car A/C not blowing cold air?

Why is my Car A/C not blowing cold air?Why is the air conditioning running warm in my vehicle?Here in Florida, the summer days are quickly approaching and there is no greater need for Air Conditioning than during the summer months. With the humidity on the way to make its presence known as well, your A/C plays a major role in a comfortable ride.One reason your A/C is not blowing cool air is because of the compressor not functioning properly, or not doing its job effectively. The Compressor is also known as the heart of the A/C system. We call these pressures when the A/C starts and stops.What we do is hook up a set of gauges to see what these pressures are. You have a high pressure and a low pressure. Depending on what the pressures are doing, it will help to diagnose where the problem in the system may lay. Other ways besides testing pressures, is to test the amount of Freon, because too high or ... read more
