|Damieboo||We've been having AC problems a couple thousand miles after purchasing the car but it's starting to get worse so I'll have the dealership look at it. Takes a while to get cold, not TOO long but doesn't get ice cold until the 10 minute mark at least. What's really bothering us is the humid air it periodically blows. So humid I can barely breathe. It did this for 2 whole hours on our 4 hour trip from CA to AZ. Was pretty miserable...I've had the AC looked at in the past just die to a full car inspection but nothing was ever reported so we'll see.|

I don't know about the evaporator sensor issue but I do know that I have had my AC system repaired twice in the last 2 years.
These are the mechanics remarks:
April 2013 - VERIFIED COMPLAINT FOUND THE A/C BLOWING WARM HOOKED UP GAUGES FOUND THE FREON LOW. iNSPECTED VEH WITH A BLACK LIGHT FOUND THE EXPIATION VALVE LEAKING. PERFORMED EVAC AND RECHARGE ON THE A/C REMOVED OLD VALVE AND REPLACED O-RINGS. CHARGED THE A/C RETEST OK
April 2015 - VERIFIED COMPLAINT FOUND THE A/C INOP. HOOKED UP GAUGES FOUND NO FREON IN SYATEM. INSPECTED WITH BLACK LIGHT FOUND THE A/C LINES AND EXPIATION BLOCK LEAKING. REPLACED THE A/C LINED AND EXPIATION BLOCK.
This second repair was NOT covered under warranty (even though they had to replace the exact same piece that they installed 2 years prior. Originally I was quoted $880 but my service advisor talked to the service manager and they stated they would absorb 1/2 of the cost. Final cost was $340. I had to pay for a repair that Ford did only 2 years ago. No one has ever touched my car but my dealer and, to be honest, I am not real confident any more with their repairs/parts. If the repair / A/C unit is only going to last 2 years, I am not going to be keeping this vehicle too much longer.

I have a 2011 ford fusion with 85,000 miles and the a/c quit working. I have read some online post that it possibly could be the evaporator sensor has gone out. is this a recall from Ford?

2012 a/c problem
We have a 2013 SE hatch and didn't get it off the lot after signing the paper work and the compressor locked up and stalled the motor [emoji35] the dealer had it fixed the next day and we never had an issue with it, although we live in Vegas the AC takes 30 mins to cool down and it's not the best

I just purchased a brand new 2014 FF SE Hatch and have had issues with the A/C from the beginning. Only have 900~ miles on it now, but on occasion it takes 10-25 minutes for the A/C to actually kick on. (just blows very hot air until it does so)
Brought it to the dealer, waited 2 hours, they found nothing.
Not really sure what to do at this point, I do not live within 30 min of my dealer so even if I tried bringing it as the issue was occurring it would probably kick on by then.

I had my escape done at the dealer since it was under warranty, but the escape had a catastrophic failure, the pulley came off with some of the casing of the compressor, and obviously tore the belt off.
I just bought this focus brand new in june, can't believe the compressor is already dead. It looks like the seals let go in a hurry, all the oil is sitting on the pan underneath it. Yeah I wouldn't want to try to get to this compressor, looks like an absolute pain in the ass.

How difficult was it to do on your Escape?

|cbtrac||It appears as if my A/C compressor just grenaded itself after only 5100 miles, I'm pretty pissed. This is the second new ford in a row of mine that this has happened to, my 06 escape compressor went at around 20k-25k miles.|

|paul21||Welp, I started my car up and smelled something awful, then 200 miles into a 450 mile trip my A/C clutch seized and burned the drive belt off. 1.5 months out of warranty, but I bought the ESP.|
