Owners of various Nissan vehicles including Rogues have had ongoing problems with their air conditioners blowing hot air and never cooling. Nissan has provided various explanations, and frequently none of them fixes the problems.
RepairPal.com describes the most likely scenario when diagnosing and attempting repair of Nissan air conditioning problems.
“What are common reasons my Nissan Rogue has air conditioning problems?
While there are a variety of reasons your Nissan Rogue air conditioning won’t work, the most common 3 are a refrigerant leak, an electrical climate control issue, or a problem with the air conditioning compressor.
37% of the time it’s AC Refrigerant Leak
21% of the time it’s Climate Control Electrical Issue
12% of the time it’s AC Compressor”
What will be the outcome of an air conditioning system diagnosis?
Replacement of most air conditioning components requires complete evacuation of the air conditioning system with a refrigerant recovery machine. Once components are re-installed, the technician will remove all air from the system in preparation for recharging the system with new refrigerant.”

Consumers continue to complain about problems with the Nissan air-conditioning systems. Youtube videos have been created and other materials are gathered.
One consumer demonstrates his Nissan A/C problems: “If your aircon behaves like this:…
“…which is exactly what mine is like, then like what I said before, it was diagnosed and now confirmed for almost a month now, to be due to a faulty evaporator sensor! If you see my reply above, this could not be diagnosed using Nissan’s diagnostics – tried with 3 full days; probably due to poor FMEA preparation. My local Nissan here was good enough to decide to fault find my car using traditional trouble shooting by part replacement – for two more full days! Believe me, you could be fooled that it is a computer/software issue, as the system is so integrated that a simple failing part will exhibit complex control behaviour. If you see the same symptom as you see in this youtube, ask to have your evaporator sensor replaced – it only costs <$100 – not much to lose…. If yours work out, please tell me, cause I want to know..”

Hi, my 2014 Xtrail (Rogue in US) have similar issues; aircon suddenly would not work and blow warm air; the controller switched from internal air circulation to external air; for whatever reason(?). While the blower continues to blow, the aircon would not work; even though the aircon light is ON. Very dangerous situation as cabin gets really hot and humid in summer and when the cold change comes, the windshield will be completely fogged up! I went to Nissan service centre 3x and left the car over-night twice. First time Nissan changed the whole compressor – didn’t solve it, then they changed the A/C relay; but all were misdiagnosed, so the issue remains. Since the diagnostic codes does not make sense to the technician; during my third visit, he did the conventional step by step trouble shooting. A total of 5 days of trouble shooting and finally determined the fault at evaporator sensor. A week past now and the a/c is looking good – no more ficky intermittent a/c! If anyone of you see this symptom, go and tell the service workshop that it could be and probably is a faulty evaporator sensor. I’m surprised that Nissan did not have a complete Failure Mode Engineering Analysis on this system – it would have saved them and everyone millions of $ and time.
