Air con blowing hotter when on cold

Hi all

This is my first post here having only just bought my first alfa at the weekend. It is only a 2001 156 1.6 16v as im easy my self into the alfa experience.

With this hot weather i thought having air con would be a blessing but its not. when i bought the car the air con seemed to be out of gas so i filled it up using a halfords diy kit and filled it up to the max 45 psi like it said to do.

now when it is on cold max it seems to blow out hot air and as soon as i turn the air con off and just have the fan on it seems to be a bit cooler

Any ideas

Many Thanks

Hi there, wellcome to the ALFA world.
You have to have it done by some professional shop since the gas was gone it needs to be drained, tested for leaks and refilled.
The system must be in vacuum before refilling with gas and some oil or else it will never work properly.

If it is the PRE- face lift model with twisty dials, make sure you are not pointing the directional knob to max as this simply sends hot air without adjusting the temp dial, if so then just knock it back one click and the difference should be made. This is the same problem I had when I got this first Alfa of mine (156)
