Customer Question

I just had a new ac compressor installed three months ago. I hear compressor kick on however it is blowing out hot air. Took it back and was told everything fine with the ac. Said the problem is a bender door issue. Gave me three codes B1242, B1265, B2798. Said the heating system is essentially overriding the sc system. Does this sound accurate?

Hello and thank you for your question,

The codes you have listed do indicate a problem with the Air inlet door actuator and if it has failed then it can cause the type of problem you are describing .In most cases if there diagnosis has been properly done replacement of the actuator will resolve the problem.
