Chevrolet Aveo5 LS: I am having problems with my 2009 chevy

Customer Question

I am having problems with my 2009 chevy aveo5s ac. The ac compressor clutch engages when you turn on the ac but does not blow cold air. I checkled the charge last year when the problem started with a diy kit but it said that the system was completely charged. By the way, the accumulator does not get cold.

Hello, I'm Chris. Thanks for seeking us for help.
I am sorry for the delay in getting a response to you. Sometimes we get alot of customers and just can not keep up. Sometimes you just have to wait for the correct tech to login.
Do you even still need help. Sometimes customers seek help elsewhere or figure it out on their own before we get to each and everyone.
I am sure I can help a lot or a little at least something if you give me a chance and work with me. I am going to get an answer to you regardless if you reply or not sooner or later.
If your concern is urgent reply and let me know and if you have anything more you think will help me, to help you, let me know. I work on here normally 3pm-3am central.
Thanks Chris

Still haven't completely figured it out. The compressor engages when the ac is turned on from the inside, but does not cycle on/off like I'm used to seeing. The ac lines under the hood do not get cold. Someone had told me that it could some sort of switch, but... and like I said it had a full charge last year when the problem started. I appreciate your help.

It's not a real urgent problem, like I said; been dealing with it for a little over a year now
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 2 years ago.
With the compressor running but the evaporator lines not cold that mans there is a restriction in the system or there is no Freon, which should result in the compressor not able to run. Can you buy a can of Freon and charge it some and test it, before we need to check the high and low side pressures.
You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.
Thanks Chris

I will try your suggestion to charge it some tomorrow; I'm a nurse at a hospital and work 12 hr shifts so my schedule is a little unforgiving at times. Only able to tinker with it on my days off. I will try it then and let you know what happens.

I work 12 hour shifts here as well, but every day of the year.
