Hello. Does your blower motor work on all speeds? Is your AC blowing cold?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
The blower motor works on all speeds, the ac blows cold. However, when I turn on Max AC the fan speed doesn't increase like it used to
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 8 months ago.

Alright. I would not suggest the DIY freon charge. Your freon sounds fine. When you select max AC, your blower motor doesn't kick up to another speed. When you select max AC, your HVAC system recirculates the air inside the car as opposed to normal AC which draws air in from outside. It sounds like it's blowing harder but it's just a little noisier due to the air being recirculated. When you hit the recirculating button on your control panel, do you hear any change at all?
