Your AC ultimately functions w/ a compressor NOT "condenser." Who replaced your "condenser" (should have replaced the compressor). There are some unscrupulous hacks who will use a recharge kit w/o telling you that you must also replace the compressor, which is going to be severall to many hundreds, depending on the make/model/year of u car. Sorry 2 tell u bad news, u most likely need a new compressor and perhaps you got ripped off. ALWAYS MARK the part you think is bad using a paint pen or an electrical engrave pen and tell your mechanic you want to keep that part. This proves they actually replaced it. If they say they need it for a core trade in, then that's okay, you want to see the part they claim they removed from YOUR CAR. IT IS YOUR PROPERTY, they can keep it for core trade in AFTER YOU SEE THAT IT CAME OUT OF YOUR CAR. Good Luck, sorry for the negative observations but I've seen it done.
