Air Conditioning problem
2002 Volvo S60 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 138, 00 miles
The air conditioner in my Volvo S60 doesn't work properly when it's very hot and humid outside. There is no problem when I first turn it on or for the first 15 to 20 min. Then something seems to freeze up and block any air from coming through the vents. I can hear that the blower/fan is still on, but no air comes out of the vents. To solve the problem, I have to turn the a/c off and let warm air from the outside blow through the vents. After a few minutes, I get a major blast of cold air (even though the A/C isn't on at this point) that last a few minutes and then gets warm again. After this, I turn the A/C back on and it will work until another 15 min. Goes by and it freezes up again. It seems to be worse when I have the fan at medium speed instead of on full blast, however, having it on full blast does not always keep the freezing up from happening. I would appreciate any help you can give me. I've yet to find anyone who can help me solve this problem.
