Customer Question
I have a 2006...

I have a 2006 Jeep Liberty CRD (2.8L diesel). I turn the AC on, and it blows cold air, but I smell something burning. I opened the hood, and the burning smell is coming from the compressor.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant level? Have you checked for a leak in the radiator?

Yes, coolant is fine. I know it has to do the AC. I can smell the burning odor from around the compressor.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Liberty yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am going to fix myself. but I have done nothing yet.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Nothing that I can think of.

Hi the burning smell is your field coil. It’s melting internally due to high resistance. 2 things cause this are 1 the Freon levels exceed specs or 2 the compressor is failing.
