my AC fan is working ok, and the blower fan is working. I would like a little more pressure / air from the vents, but I assume this is the way it is to work from new (bought used about 9 months ago) There is good pressure/airflow but not great. As for freon I had added TWO 18 oz. cans (15 oz.) freon in each can. I then thought I over filled so I took some freon out of the system, not sure how much, probably 6 - 12 oz., I then added most of another 18 oz. ( 15 oz.) freon. so I guess I would be around 32 to 38 oz. That would be my best guess.

OK. I was really unsure of how much freon was in the system. Because today on my way to work it was about 80 degrees. and really humid. Way sticky nasty and my AC would not get lower then about 68 70 degrees out of the vent. The only way it would drop down is when I was stopped at a red light and I had the fan on low. So I talked to a friend and he agreed with me that I was still probably low on freon. I bought a 12 oz. can I couldn't believe it we sell it at my work, very convenient. I added about half a can when I left work. It was about 98 degrees and I have over an hour drive home. It got cooler then in the morning about 60 to 65. I turned the fan down and it went down to about 45 to 50, the fan was on very low and I moved it up a little and it was ok and then I went all the way up and it went up to about 60. I said screw it pulled over along side of the road and added the remainder of the 12 oz. can. I jumped in and headed home. At medium fan speed it went down to about 40 to 45. I slowly worked up the fan speed and it stayed cool about 41 to 48. When I slowed down it would go up to about 50 or so and when I started to move the temp would drop back down to around 43 to 45. Seemed pretty nice the rest of the way home. Keep in mind it was very humid which I know makes it a little harder on AC to work properly. I think I have it pretty good. Do you think I should let it be or tweak it some more??? My gut tells me that is about as good as it will get.
Thanks again.
Chuck

well as for how much it should take I have no idea. I was hoping someone here would have been able to help me with that one. I would say I have about 42 oz. give or take a few oz.'*. I did have it on and off of recirculate It didn't seem to make a whole lot of difference like it would on a non-electronic climate system. The electronic climate control seems less responsive it appears to me. I was hoping someone on here could tell me how much freon it would take for my system. I was also wondering if anyone with a bonnie can relate to the temps and conditions my AC is working under. Is my system working = to anyone elses/ Or even close to anyone elses.
Thanks,
Chuck
