Customer Question

Hello. I have a 2011 Sorento the ac blows hot. The compressor is running and full of freon. The engine fan cycles when the ac is turned on/off. The doors in the evaporator box are functioning properly. I had read on here that the evaporator climate temp sensor was an issue on the Sorento. I replaced it thinking that was the cause.

You need to scan the hvac module for codes. This will tell you if you have a sensor issue. You will also need a set of ac gauges to see the pressures of the system. Pressures will tell you a lot about how the system is working. Is the larger line leading to the evap cold under the hood near the firewall?

The high pressure line is hot the low pressure line is cool but not cold.
