Hello, when you are at the stop with it not working does it sound like the engine cooling fan is running at high speed?

HI,
Different expert here.
Take it for a test drive for at least 15-20 minutes, then pull over and open the hood and with engine idling, look to see if fan at the radiator and condenser at front of engine compartment is running
If not running, then there is a fan issue which will cause the ac to blow warm/hot while idling or at low speeds.
If running ok, then there is a restriction in the ac condenser and will need to be replaced
