I have some questions about how the A/C compressor works, as I think mine is having some problems.
First off, should the belt on the A/C compressor be spinning even with the AC turned off and the fan speed set to 0? What about if the fan speed is 1 or higher but the A/C is still turned off?
Also, in the center of the compressor, there's a little triangle shape that spins. Does that also turn on and off depending on if the AC is turned on as well as if the fan speed is something other than 0?
I have some clunking sounds and an intermittent chirping noise that occurs about every 25 seconds, and I believe it's related to the A/C compressor. But I don't know much about the compressor so I wanted to know if it's acting strange.
