Either its dirty, or it has a coolant leak. Try to clean the fins out really good. If that doesnt work, call in a pro.

2000 ford explorer air cinditioning blowing low cool air added freon clutch working properly condenser is not iceing, but sweating still no changein cooling. not cold air, but low cool air, why is this...

If you attempted to add to the system, you most likely
added some air into it also

Unless you have a vacuum pump & can leak test,
evacuate the system & recharge yourself,you will
have to pay someone to fix things

Condencing unit

Check filters to see if dirty, clean or replace. Is the coil or condensing unit iceing up? If so, have your system recharged and checked for leaks.

Four things cause icing up:
( 1 ) Is your filter clean? dirty filter blocks air flow causing iceing up. replace filter
( 2 ) Do you hear the Indoor fan running? If the fans not running the unit ices up. Check Capacitor to fan if good.
Bad fan motor... replace fan motor and cap. If both good
( 3 ) Check Air Handler evap coil if dirty and or clogged, restricts air flow causing unit to ice up. Use toilet brush to clean.
This is always a big possibility if you have pets.
( 4 ) If the above are not present then you are low on refrigerant.
Low refrigerant will cause icing up because the gas does not flash properly. This will require a service tech.
refrigerant leaks can be as simple as a loose cap on the king valve, leaking schrader core, to coil leak.
Have the service tech show you the leak. If it is in a copper line it can be fixed. If the system is over 10 years old limit the amount you want to spend. 10 years is the standard life expectantcy anymore. Good luck
