My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your question today.

I'm an independent contractor and I don't get paid until a rating has been made.

We can go back and forth as needed to help resolve the issue you are having. Follow ups are free after ratings, so rate in confidence!

To confirm, the compressor is coming on? What are the pressures showing wit ha set of manifold gauges? Are the lines cold and sweating?

Is the engine fan spinning good?

The compressor came on once and it was blowing cold. But after that it won't come on again. The low side was around 50 and the high side was around 225. The engine fan was spinning good.

Have you checked the electrical to see that there is no issues? Are you getting power to the clutch?

Do you have the manual A/C or the auto temp style electronic A/C?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Sorry had something come up. I will have to wait until tomorrow to deal with this.
Expert:  Jeremy replied 1 year ago.

That's ok.

Follow up when you can.

I was asking which system you have to be able to help diagnose the issue.

I'll post up diagrams when you return and I know which system you have to see where the loss of power is if there is no signal going to the clutch.

Have a good night.

I had to work on the dishwasher and i got that fixed . So went ahead and changed out the relay on the trucks a/c system and that seem to fix the problem. So i didn't need your help after all. Thanks anyway!
