Do Not Sell My Personal Information

The condesor radiator has a leak of fluid and the aircon system cannot be refilled until I fit a new condensor unit. I do not want to do that at present so we just do not use the aircon   however I wonder if the aircon pump can be damaged by not having fluid in the sysetm? I am thinking seals drying out etc rather than the pump being run without fluid?

I wouldn't leave it for a long period of time. The oils used in the system are hygroscopic (absorb moisture) and can become acidic corroding and damaging internal parts. That could require the compressor having to be removed and drained and then refilled correctly. A much much bigger job.
