The AC in my M9000 works on and off. It will blow very cold when I first use the tractor but after 20 minutes the compressor will turn off. The compressor does kick itself back on after a few minutes, but lately it is taking much longer to start working again. I am confident the condenser is clean as i have cleaned it over 10 times the past few days. The sight glass does have some bubbles in it. I have found that when the compressor is not working I can spray water on it and it will kick back on. Can anyone help?

Sounds like you either have low Freon or an air leak under pressure. There is a switch that will not allow the compressor to run without enough Freon.

Now, for cables ol' me... the AC is a spray bottle and hopefully a nice breeze. :D

My A/C did the same thing. I thought my radiator was clean but it turned out that was the problem. Started washing from the inside out and it had chunks of stuff in there. After it was good and clean the A/C worked fine.
