A/c help!

Ac blows hot air, its been charged with freon.
When fired up with ac on full blast, the clutch kicks on and spins for 2-3 seconds then clicks off, then clicks on again for another 2 sec or so, then clicks back off and stays off. Any ideas?

AC clutch air gap wrong, Improper pressures, bad sensors, bad wiring.

I filled it with a machine in tn to the sticker specs. And it worked for awhile. Im now at fort bliss tx. Could the temp. and humidity difference cause the gas to expand and become "overcharged"

Doubt it. I'd check air gap first.
