For an AC system to work, it needs a gas or liquid substance called refrigerant, The application of a AC condenser is to cool the AC gas for converting it to a liquid form. It is the outdoor unit that joints the compressor, a blower fan, and the condenser coil, along with motors and capacitors to supply power to the different parts. A malfunctioning condenser can’t effectively cool the way it’s meant to! Fixing air conditioner’s condenser isn’t a do it yourself task. Always remember electrical appliances that work along with liquids aren’t a thing to mess with. You could severely injure yourself or damage the unit, which would mean costly repairs or long medical bills.
