95 Jeep Grand Cherokee: air conditioning..cold setting, hot air blows

This answer was rated:

my 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee air conditioning no longer blows cold air. In fact, even on the cold setting, hot air blows. What is the likely problem?

If your air conditioning in not working, or working but not up to par, there can be a few different things that can cause this. There can be anything from restrictions in the system to your blend air door vents not working properly. First and foremost is look to see if your compressor is coming on. If all of your freon has leaked out or even if the freon level is a bit low, the computer will not turn on the compressor. This is to prevent damage to the compressor and the components. This is very common! If the compressor is cycling on and off, than the system is just slightly low on freon. This will cause the AC to work, but poorly. Look for moisture around the outside of the AC fittings. This will indicate a leak. If no moisture is detected, you might just be able to get away with recharge

but what if only hot air is blowing, like the system is on high heat?
Then chances are you have a blend air door problem inside the dash

if that is true, how many hours labor is that likely to take? could there be a thermaster problem that it is stuck on high heat?
DO you have auto or manual air?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Auto, though manual is always an option. This is a 95 Jeep Cherokee Limited with every possible option.
What size engine do you have?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
5.2L FI

Then yes.. your head unit can be bad or you could have a bad blend air door motor or bad belnd air door.... it only calls for a little labor to replace each. According to my specs, it is less than 2.0 hours labor for each one..
