2014 Kia Sorento EX Air Conditioner Problem

I now have 14,000 miles on my 2014 Kia Sorento. While driving to visit relatives on Saturday (a two hour trip) the air conditioner was set on 69 degrees. About an hour an 15 minutes into the trip the air flow from the vents began to get weaker and weaker. I turned temperature down and blower speed to high and eventually the air flow completely stopped. You could hear the blower on high speed running but no air was coming from vents. I have video evidence of this if anyone would like for me to post video. Has anyone else had this problem? I have noticed the flow getting weaker on several occasions barely able to keep up with keeping cabin cool but had never had the airflow completely stop until Saturday.

You need to take it into a Kia dealership for this.

I see. We at my Kia dealership have seen any problems with any of the 2014 Sorento's we've sold so far.

2014 air problems

I just dropped off my 2014 Sorento at the dealership to get some work done and told them about the problem with the air conditioner. Basically, on long runs (once car gets up to operating temp) the air will stop flowing thru vents and will warm up. The fan is blowing but nothing is coming out. This is an intermitant problem. I will get back with what dealer says and would appreciate any info anyone else has dealing with this problem.

Anyone have an update on this? We experienced this on our 2 day old Kia Sorento Limited. I had the ventilated driver seat on and the AC on low. It seemed to be fine until about an hour and a half into our trip. We had also changed the passenger temperature to not so low. Had to turn AC off then back on to get air blowing again. It did sound like air was blowing but just could not feel it.

Did you verify which vents it was supposed to be blowing out of? It chooses which vents to use in auto, depending on temperature needs. You can hit the climate button anytime to check that.

I've had a problem with the AUTO function not turning off. Air flow seems okay, but I got my SX in July and even though I wanted manual air flow in the evenings (no A/C) the A/C would kick on. I found that clicking the manual A/C button on, then off made it allow to get only airflow from outside. I dunno. It's been tricky. I've also had the MODE (even on manual) suddenly change. Example: it would switch to vent/floor automatically in the morning even though I had set it to vent only the evening before.

Again, I dunno. I reported this to my dealership and they responded... uselessly. Some things on the Sorento might be too automatic for it's own good.
