 System Pressure Troubleshooting

Low Side and High Side Pressures are Low
• Refrigerant charge below manufacturer specification
• A/C compressor not engaged / variable displacement inoperable
• A/C compressor performance deteriorating

Low Side and High Side Pressures are High
• Refrigerant charge above manufacturer specification
• Condenser fan inoperable
• Condenser dirty / airflow obstruction
• Internal obstruction of condenser

Low Side Pressure Low, High Side Pressure High
• System restriction

Pressures at or Near Equal
• A/C compressor failing internally
• A/C compressor variable displacement function inoperable
• Expansion valve failure
