How to inspect Vehicles A/C Condenser ?

If you need dis-assembly or replacement instructions for any other auto/car part, or you want to ask question related to your car/truck jeep problem then please leave the comment with your details, so I can provide you the required instructions and solutions.

The Condenser is a liquidizer;Its the component of a refrigeration system in which refrigerant vapor is changed to a liquid by the removal of heat.

There are three possible malfunctions of a condenser:
  • A leak due to rust and corrosion or by being struck by a sharp object or stone.
  • A restriction if a tube has been bent when struck with an outside object, such as a stone, with insufficient force to cause a leak but sufficient to kink or collapse a tube.
A restricted condenser may also result in excessive compressor or discharge pressure. A partial restriction can cause a temperature change and even frost or ice to form immediately after the restriction. In this case, the restriction is serving as a metering device.

  • Restricted airflow through the condenser caused by dirt, debris, or foreign matter. When the airflow through the condenser is restricted or blocked, high discharge pressures will result.
  • Look for blockage of the condenser fins with either mud or leaves. Clean mud and dirt away with water.

Though not easily detected, the outlet tube of the condenser may be slightly cooler than the inlet tube during normal operation.
Also if you have better understanding of other car AC cooling system parts,then it will help more to troubleshoot the problem.
Check the list below or more help.

Its always advisable to know the AC components working and testing procedure,before replacing any part.
