A/C not blowing cold

Ok, so the wife wants the air conditioner in our 2000 Tj 6 cyl auto to blow cold. Currently its blowing warm air. So I bought a can of refrigerant and added a little to the system. No luck. It still blows warm. The compressor is working, cycling about every 25 to 30 seconds. Not sure if that is too often. Its holding pressure doesn't seem to have any leaks. Does anyone have any suggestions? Could it be a bad compressor or drier?

The compressor should not cycle until the inside temp is cold, the compressor cycling is a sign of low freon!! Slowly add freon till you get the compressor to run constant.

Don't "JUST" add freon...it's bad for your AC and the environment! Get something like this that tells you exactly where your pressure is at...
$35 at Walmart!

Jeep wrangler 1998 air compressor- hit it with a hammer it works. Hit a bump it's off. Can it be fixed or do I need a new one. I've owned it for 8 years and never had AC. It's time.

For the OP, likely a blend door issue. If your temp controls are of the slide lever variety, check the underside cable to the blend door to see if the blend door moves. Newer TJ's temp controls are by an actuator motor that you can also check.
