Fuse blows when A/C is turned on

Asked by Jul 04, 2018 at 02:19 AM about the 2013 Ford Explorer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2013 Ford Explorer XLT with a new a/c compressor and condensor
and when the a/c is switched on it will kick on and within a matter of minutes it
blows #70 fuse, what could be causing this fuse to keep blowing?

Compressor coil perhaps has a short. Don't know if that part came with your unit or not. I've purchased some rebuilt compressors and they were duds right out of the box.

Thanks we will check that.

It is 3.5
