Air Conditioning

Well now that its finally hot out, my A/C isn't working. It was fine a few months ago when I was in the Florida Keys, but when I turned it on recently I get no cold air! Its a 14' JKU with 40,800 miles. The last thing done to it was thermostat was replaced and the system was flushed at the dealer. I hoping for something simple or obvious, but I'm no mechanic. Any ideas would be great. Thanks in advance, Joe.

blowing - just not cold? They may have evacuated/vented the coolant

Yes it's blowing fine, just not cold or even cool air. I've never had A/C in any of my wranglers, so I'm totally not familiar with them. What would the solution be?

My JK stopped blowing cold on a trail one day here in Az. I took it to a buddies house who Has a RobinAir AC machine at home and ran the vacuum for 30 minutes and then started to fill. Immediately after we started charging I could here hissing and we were able to find the leak. Like an idiot I mounted my Warn Winch Solenoid box behind the grill and a bolt behind the box was able to make a small hole in the condenser with road vibrations etc.

I'll keep that in mind, been trying to look for leaks anywhere, but so far havent found anything. I was hoping not to have to take it somewhere, but I dont think the wife will appreciate no A/C all summer!
