Subaru Air Conditioner Faults
Subaru Air Conditioner
When the air conditioning in your Subaru air conditioner blows hot air, you likely have a refrigerant leak.
The most common fault on the Subaru air conditioning system is the discharge air-con hose leaking at the ferrule crimp. The hose is repairable by cutting off old ferrules and welding new ones on and replacing the rubber section.
One other air conditioning problems can be the compressor seizing — a common fault on the Subaru air conditioner compressors. It usually recommended replacing the compressor in this circumstance.
Here are the five main components of the automotive air conditioning system and what they do:
• Compressor. It’s in the vehicle’s front and puts the refrigerant under pressure. It works to compress the gas to the point of around 250 psi and increase the temperature at the same time.
• Condenser. A radiator-like component that the gas moves through once it’s heated. Inside the condenser, it converts the gas to a liquid as it removes the heat.
• Evaporator. It’s responsible for pulling the refrigerant into the vacuum where the gas then becomes cold.
• Thermal expansion valve It changes the system from high pressure to low pressure. It’s where things change from hot to cold.
• Drier or accumulator. Removes the water that has entered the system. Without this step, the unit can form ice crystals, which can damage the air conditioning unit.
When you turn on your Subaru Air conditioning, and the air comes out, it may all seem so simple. You are only hitting a switch. But the truth behind it is that multiple components are working together to give you that refreshingly cold air. If these components are not working correctly. It will prevent the whole unit from working the way it should, making it essential to have it serviced as soon as possible.
