My A/C has been suboptimal. When trying to recharge the refrigerant, the pressure seemed to fluctuate high and low. I got some refrigerant into it though.
I noticed the compressor was cycling on and off at rapid intervals -- a few seconds on, a few seconds off. I noticed the outer portion of the pulley would stop spinning and start spinning (the interior part was always spinning since the belt was moving it). Is this a sign of a bad pulley or does it normally act like that when the compressor is cycling on and off?
I read somewhere about possibly the low pressure switch/cycling switch being bad. I have the part but couldn't get to it buried in there.
If you know you have the proper amount of refrigerant in there, then my guess would also be the low pressure switch. If impossible to get too, might have to have the work done. Here in Phoenix, was supposed to reach 118 today. It may have made it, my patio about an hour ago hit 117. I took the attached a little while ago.
You likely don't have enough charge in there, or it is overcharged (less likely).
When the compressor turns on, watch your gauge, and see if the suction side drops; if it gets below around 20 or 25 (somewhere around there), the compressor will shut off due to low pressure. While the compressor is on, you should be able to get enough freon in there to get the charge high enough to keep the compressor running, then get the proper pressure.
