Possible causes:
1. needs a refill
2. there is a leak
3. small fan problem

Remember that you run too long with no refrigerant too long compressor will seize. Of course, it may turn itself off before than but not always.

Why my 2005 Acura RL AC blowing out heat not cold air

First determine whether or not the compressor is running. The a/c line in the engine compartment coming out of the firewall shouldbe cold and maybe have frost on it if yhe compressor is running. If the compressor is not running, the system may need to be charged. If it is running, the problem is with the blend door inside the heater box in the car.

Honda del sol 1994 ac is heating normally but when put on cold no air is coming out and no noises at all????

Probably a bad compressor, AC is a setting that runs the air thru the condensor, compressor, and evaporator, when the compressor goes out then they whole system shuts down.

Air conditioner compressor seems to quit after 1 to 2 hours driving-blower stll runs, but cold air stops green compressor lite is still on, but no cold air-turn off ac for 20 to 30 minutus, comes back on...

Sounds like the air gap on the compressor clutch is to wide, when the compressor turns off to recycle the electromagnet on the clutch is not strong enough to pull the air gap and lock up compressor. The air gap is adjustable and should be checked.

Air conditioner not putting out cold air - had "freon" replaced - mechanic says radiator fan motor needs replacing ($500), but engine does not run hot - would this affect air conditioning temperature -...

Should have two fans one is the radiator fan and the other is the condensor fan .If the condensor fan does not come on then the ac will not work.

My air conditioning comes on my car is full of freeon but it don't get cold

If the freon is at the correct level and your AC compressor is teh most likely candidate. Have the AC compressor checked.

Air not working. Compressor kicks on and seems to run and silver cannister underhood gets cold, but no cold air just really hot air. Does it only need refridgerant?

If the AC compressor runs it has plenty ( or at least enough ) freon, sounds more lie you have an air mix door problem, check on the inside where the door flap changes for heat to AC, if it doesn't move when switching from one to the other you have that problem.
But if the compressor comes on and cycles off fairly soon afterward you are in need of a recharge.

Ac blows only hot air,how to fix

You need to check that the compressor is running, if this does not work could be due to lack of freon, electrical problems, if the compressor runs you can touch the thick tube that goes into the evaporator has to be cold, if cold and in the car does not come the cold is due to problems at the gate of the evaporator or problem in the control panel for air conditioning.

No cold air

There may be enough freon to make the compressor engage however not to make it cool down. Once the freon drops enough, the compressor will not turn on to prevent damage to the unit.
When you say it comes on are you saying the blower fan works or that the compressor is indeed engaging?
