A/C not blowing cold air A/C not blowing cold air A/C not blowing cold air

At one point, the cold air from the air conditioner stopped blowing. I was diagnosed with a compressor failure. But after a little thought, we decided to start replacing the electric valve (this is cheaper). I was lucky that after replacing the valve, the air conditioner started working.
