A/C keeps blowing Reciever/dryer off

Recommended Posts

A/C blows the receiver/dryer off the evaporator connection, I thought at first it was building to mush high side pressure due to fan clutch seized and condenser beat up not getting good air flow, but those have been replaced. Just went to start truck after it sat for 20-30 minutes and it blew again, when it's working air blows ice cold. Was going to put gauges on while not running to see if pressure equalized between high/low sides but that will have to wait.

Need to have the pressure readings to see what's going on.  Also, there is a high pressure switch which opens between 450-490psi and closes 270-330psi.

Do you still have the clips that hold the lines together?

Yes, but the lip for the spring to latch around has been flattened out, have the dash out now to replace the evaporator, had dash out 10 days ago to replace the heater core, so I got the procedure down.

Those pressures are for the over pressure safety switch not the running pressure.

That falls in the normal range. I think @dripley and you are on to something with that connection and spring.

I've got a whole bag full of the locking springs for that purpose. Typically you can buy a o-ring kit for like $7 dollars and usually have a few locking springs in the kit. Double check the fittings too. Female side without the lock should have a good curled lip for the spring to grab.

Yea, missed that until now, it's been clicking on(could hear spring click) but the lip has been flattened out. I think it's just been connected/disconnected too many times.

Time to replace that piece.

Yep, that's why the dash is out, last time I was time restricted, this time I'm going to replace door foam. Was going to get some adhesive remover to get the old foam off, hope that will work.
