How about some more info as to what is running and what is not running? We can try to help, but need some more info.

I had a 01 Sun Crusier that quit putting out cold air. I took it to the Ford delear and they found a plastic bag that got sucked onto a cold air return. It is located under the dash in the passanger's foot well. Maybe this is your problem, worth a check.

Buster, My 03 Winne Brave quit putting out cold air with about 9000 miles on it. I took it to the Ford dealer, who called Winnebago. I was out of warranty at Winnebago, and it turned out to be a Winne problem( basically I was out of warranty). It cost about $300 to get it fixed, and now with 12000 miles on it, it quit again. That's what I get for not being able to put a lot of miles on it the first year (family illness). Anyway, good luck, and let me know how it turns out. Firesheep

Buster, when I had a problem with our AC not working I found a pinched vacuum line causing the problem. Under the hinged section of the dash near the rear of the dash radio on ours is a vacuum servo that is part of the AC control. It has a vacuum line attached to it. I found a plastic tie strip had pinched the vacuum line. After cutting the tie strip the AC worked fine.

Regarding "what is running"--just tooling down the highway with the AC on in warm(70 degree)clear weather. Makes no difference whether moving or sitting. Just getting ambient air. Anybody know if there is a fuse involved? Didn't have a problem until dealer installed a new v-belt on the engine. Will check your other suggestions. Thanks for the responses.

My dash air has been out for a while, had the evaperator pull and checked, replaced the condensor, replace the compressor with new part and serviced it. While standing and admiring it working so well noticed bubbles coming from the exspantion valve so I replaced it as well.
I think all I needed was a new exspantion valve all the time.
That was a $1100.00 Dollar repair that should have been about $100.00 to fix.
Check for leaks first thing and go from there!

If its a EVANS AC you have a valve on ac that is not closing when looking for full ac cooling. Some hot water is going thru heater heating up ac. go to FIND type in "evans ac" take off check mark and you will have your answer, maybe. "007"
