Test with a gauge to make sure it's in safe range.

Is the a/c clutch cycling on and off more than 4 times/minute? If yes, you ares till low.

Do not overcharge or you could damage compressor.

Is there any easy and cheap way to find out if the compressor is bad; it won't blow cold nor will it let us add any r14

I'm assuming you mean R134 if it is a 2000 model car.
Not sure what you are saying the problem is. The compressor has to run to add freon if it is low. Normally you jumper the low pressure switch to make it run while you add freon.
Is the compressor running ? And if so, what are the high and low gauge readings ?

Fan switch dial control dosent work 99 grand prix gt.if any one can tell me how to fix it.thank you.also ac unit is making a weird grinding sound.might be low on freeon.switch dosent work so i dont no if...

I had a 97 and the knobs broke from time to time. Dealer part.
The compressor could be low on freon and/or oil but only if there is a leak in the system which would need to be repaired at some point.
A DIY can add oil or freon with a gauge kit sold at auto parts stores if the car is 1993 or newer ( R134).

Added freeon an air still doses not get cold i was told it could be the air conpeessure.i need to know how to check it and how to repair it

Dependeing on how old the car is, You may just need to have a vacuum pulled on the system in order to be able to add the proper amount of freon. The vacuum allows for you vehicle A/C system to take in more freon. As the vehicles get older, the seals tend to shrink and cause most systems to lose freon and the vacuum.

Need to know where to add freeon at

Find the access ports. The large line is the Low side and that is where you will add freon. The small line is the high side and don't ever add freon through it.

I got freeon put in my car and a day later it leaked out. i was told that freeon was leaking from my accumulator stem so i got a new one. then i was told that i needed a new compressor got one and filled...

Call the better Business bureau if you are in the states. if they havent fixed your system thats a huge issue at this point and you have rights.
But back to your problem. The evaporator is normally the first thing to spring a leak. If you are leaking freon there would be the first place to check. Add dye to the system and top it off making sure to have the UV flashlight ready. If the evap is leaking the dye should end up under the car as the condensor drains will empty there. Also check hoses and fitting.
Next get a can of freon with stop leak, a big can and add freon with car running a/c on full blast and keep the pressure at 35 psi as it cycles and drops pressure add more freon. this will take 5-10 minutes to get the system full. When the car is full the low side will read high like about 75 psi which is normal.
Only 1 problem tho if your system has had a bad leak and open to the air, the dryer should be replaced before you put new freon into it. That dryer takes internal moisture and keeps it from freezing in the system.

My air conditioning dose not get cold enought

This means you need to add more freon, you can take it in to get added or just go to your nearest auto shop and buy some with a connector and just turn your car on with your air conditioner on high, and connect the line to your can then to the low side of the air conditioner lines and hold the can up right so you let the gasses in, not liquid. when can is empty remove from low side and be careful disconnecting from can because freon is very nasty stuff and may still have a little in the can. and repeat until necessary.

I dont know where to add freeon to my 1999 kia sportage 4x4

Find the A/C compressor. Look a both lines going to it. One line should be bigger than the other. The bigger line is the Low Side (suction port) follow that line it goes to the firewall to the evaporator that is in your dash. The low side pressure port is somewhere in that line between the evaporator and the compressor. That port is where you check low side pressure and add freon. Don't worry if you buy a charging kit from a part store you can't hook it up wrong, the low side port and the high side port are different sizes and the hose won't fit. With the A/C running on high, low side pressure should be about 35psi.
