Aircon compressor

Recommended Posts

Hi just worndering if this is normal behaviour of my aircon compressor, as you can see in the video the clutch on the compressor engages then dis engages every few seconds. Also if you look at the pressure of the system it drops away down to low and climbs back up to above the green zone. Hope someone can shed some light on this.

Yeah, I'm familiar with that. It means the pressure in the system is low, so the compressor clutch keeps on engaging/disengaging. You've most likely got a leak, probably the condenser, which is the radiator-looking thing.

I replaced the condenser and compressor last year, I had the system vacuumed and re gassed a few months ago and that went ok.

So, get the pressure checked again. Then it can eliminated. But the above is the most likely cause. Never assume!
