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!

What are you using to check the pressures? Are you using a manifold gauge set taht shows the pressures for both the high and the low refrigerant settings?

Is the compressor spinning?

Are both fans spinning when the A/C is on and the compressor is on?


You want a 5 star service and I want to provide a 5 star service. Please consider that I don't know your skill level as well as I can't see, touch, smell, hear the vehicle/machine in question. Please provide as much detail as possible and I will provide as much back.

Once an answer is provided, you should see a rating screen. Please rate my personal service to you. The ratings are my personal feedback, they are not the site feedback.

Please give me a minute to type to you...

If that is the gauge that is used with the small cans from the car parts store, they are not that great to use. They don;t give the whole picture of the system. You can be overcharging your system or have a blockage in the system, then never know either of them.

Do you happen to have a set of manifold gauges? It is important because the blue should be around 40 psi and drop to 30 psi when you are revving the engine with the red less that 250, but above 200 indicating there are no blockages and the compressor is working normally. That little gauge on the can from the auto parts stores are shams. They only tell you there is freon in the system, that's it. That's why I don't like them.

If you have a autozone near you, ask to borrow a set from their free loan-a-tool program and put them on in the parking lot. Then we can see in a matter of 5 minutes what is going on with the A/C system as far as pressures go. This will tell us if the system is overcharged, if there is air, if it is leaking, is there is a blockage, if the compressor is failing internally, etc.

In the mean time, check that the vents are changine and you are switcing from heat to cool. See if the lines are also cold and sweating. You want them so cold they feel like they are freezing your hands.
