If its blowing air, but not cold, the compressor isn't engaging. There are many different possibilities on this.
Bad compressor, unit out of gas, bad run capacitor, etc, all could cause this, even a bad control panel.
Hope its something simple.

If the a/c fails to continue to blow cold there could be a few problems you can look for. First once you activate the system check to see if the compressor kicks in. You will hear the compressor humming . Once the a/c quits cooling go and see if the compressor is still running. If its not running its probibly gone into thermal overload (compressor overheated). If that is the case then you need to check to see if the coils are icing up if they are icing up then the problem is with 1) air flow restriction filter dirty, coils dirty simple repairs there replace filter, clean evaporator coil with a coil cleaner that can be purchased at a home repair store cleaning the condensor coil the same. 2) system is low on freon in which case the system will need to be recharged. Also, If you have a digital thermostat replace the batteries that may also be of some help. Good Luck on repairs

These will defrost themselves automatically when they need to - internal sensors. If it is icing up at all in cooling, then the charge is wrong. Units such as this are very sensitive to incorrect charge, so I would recommend that you have a qualified tech come out, recover all the freon and weigh in the correct charge. If this is a "new" problem, then a leak check/locate would be in order.

possibly have a capacitor out on the compressor side of the a/c Since the unit works and its only blowing air the compressor isn't kicking in. The capacitor boosts the compressor to activate the compressor. I would have the capacitor to the compressor replaced first before going any further.
Good luck on your repair
