Air Conditioner Leak

Recommended Posts

What makes you think it has a freon leak? It could just be that the compressor is not kicking in. I had one roof A/C that wasn't putting out any cold air. It turned out that the compressor wasn't starting due to a bad capacitor. Once replace, the compressor started working again and we now have cold air. More than likely you have the same problem.

A good repairman can repair it, but you are probably looking at a bench top repair, not a roof top repair....so if you have to take it down in order to repair it, you might as well go up with a new one, just remember, the old one does have some value to a repairman who could fix and resell it. Be sure you buy one that will work with your thermostat....Dometic has made some changes in recent years. Take a photo of the serial number plate under the A/C cover, and a picture of the thermostat...then go shopping, it is the best way to prevent ugly surprises. The worst part of a remove and replace is getting the units up and down from the roof...the rest is easy.

If you can find the leak and it is on a small straight section (2" ?) , you can put a clamp (made for this use) or a "saddle" over it. It then needs to be evacuated and recharged. If your unit still has the old style refrigerant in it, might not be worth the trouble.
