Getting hot air regardless if A/C is on or just fan or outside air or inside air. Temperature control and be on cold and the air is hot, if on hot then air is hotter. Not sure if a control issue, air actuater issue, thermostat. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Compressor is working and freon seems good.

Do you

Is the AC clutch engaging? If not you will need to check the Freon level is maybe why the clutch isnt engaging.

CLUTCH WILL OPERATE THE COMPRESSOR SIMILAR TO THIS

WHEN THE CENTER STOPS TURNING---THE COMPRESSOR IS NOT TURNING---IT IS NORMAL FOR IT TO CYCLE OFF AND ON---JUST NOT ALL OF THE TIMECORRECT PRESSURES IN THE SYSTEM DETERMINE WHAT IT DOES

The temperature is controlled by the use of an air mix door that is operated by an electric motor/actuator. This door can be jammed or the actuator can be inoperative or have stripped plastic gears internally.
