Had a similar thing happen to me, recharged the system and have not had it happen since, note that you should make sure you get a recharger with a long hose, the recharge port is low behind the radiator. It occurred on mine at the beginning of summer.
If you are still getting air from the vents but it is not cold then you either have a bad compressor or just need to recharge it.
With the engine on in idle, turn on the AC and watch the RPMs. They should drop about 50-100 when you turn it on, also listen for the sound of the compressor kicking in. If you notice either of these things then the compressor is probably fine and the AC just needs to be recharged.
Head to your local auto parts store and pick up a recharge kit. The kit will have pretty good instructions on how to recharge it. If you are having difficulties following them just let me know.
Jeep GrandCherokee SUVs manufactured in or before 1995 use R12 refrigerant. You must
retrofit these SUVs to accept R134 refrigerant using a retrofit kit
available at your local auto parts store before you can recharge the
system. In some areas, a license is required to retrofit an air
conditioning system. If this is the case in your area, take your Jeep
to a professional to retrofit the system.
your SUV to a mechanic to recover the R12 refrigerant out of the air
conditioning system. A license and special equipment are needed to do
this. Because R12 refrigerant is expensive, many mechanics will do the
job for free.
the Low Pressure Side connector port. You will find it on the driver's
side of the engine. Remove the blue or yellow cap marked L. You only
need to retrofit the system if you see a screw-type connector valve. If
you see a quick connect valve, the system already is R134 compatible.
Wipe the connector valve off with a clean towel. This ensures that the
retrofit connector properly adheres to the valve.
the long retrofit connector from the automotive retrofit kit onto the
Low Pressure Side valve. The retrofit connector has a special adhesive
on the threads that will help it adhere to the valve. Screw the
connector onto the valve. Tighten the retrofit connector using an
adjustable wrench. Place the cap provided in the retrofit kit onto the
retrofit connector. This keeps dust out of the system.
the air conditioning lines away from the compressor until you see the
High Pressure Side port valve. This is located near the Low Pressure
Side service port. Remove the red cap and wipe the port off with a
the shorter adapter onto the port. Twist it using an adjustable wrench
until it is securely fastened to the port. Place the red cap from the
retrofit kit onto the adaptor.
out the Retrofit Identification sticker provided in the retrofit kit
using a permanent marker. Remove the protective backing and place it on
the interior side of the hood. This lets future owners and service
professionals know that the system has been retrofitted.

Recharge Air Conditioning with Freon in a Jeep Grand Cherokee."
WARINING: Never try to evacuate the system yourself. A license and special
equipment is needed to evacuate the system. Attempting to do this
yourself will release refrigerant into the air, which is a federal
It shoud have R134a, I would use a recharge kit. If you have a slow leak this will only be a temporary fix. They usually sell a kit with a dye inside the can, If you use that you should be able to locate where the leak is.
There are two A/C refrigerant lines. The small line is your high pressure line and the larger line is your low pressure line.
Start at the fire wall and follow the "large " low pressure line to the compressor. The low pressure charge port will be some where on that line.
DO NOT try to recharge on the high pressure side ( small line )
Good luck, let me know.
