What you are describing sounds like short cycling. If the compressor is cycling on and off and will only get cold when accelerating it is probably overcharged. Do you have a set of manifold gauges to test the system pressure and make sure it's not overcharged?

Charged to correct pressure now and still will not stay engaged long enough to cool off truck, compressor engages and disengage at controlled speed and will not cool down truck. Could I have a problem with the damper door inside cab
Chevy Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

I thought you no longer needed help when I never received a response.

A bad blend door is definitely possible. When you change from hot to cold on the control head can you hear any change in the sounds coming from the dash? Clicking, movement, air flow differences?

the blender doors shut and air comes out where it is suppose to come out, blower works , can control speeds. When I ask for colder air, compressor will cooler until it starts kicking in and out, it will only raise the speed of the blower to try and keep up.
Chevy Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

So the compressor still kicks in and out?

Have you checked the orifice tube to make sure it isn't plugged? Does the airflow seem adequate or is the evaporator possibly restricted (do you own a dog-we see them plug up all the time in vehicles were dogs are frequent passengers)?
