Default A/C issues

The a/c will work if I had let the car sit in the shade or the garage but if im out driving it on a warm day then it will only blow out hot air. I can hear the flap open and close as well as the the compressor kicking in, and it is holding the freon, so im at a loss as what it could be?

A/C gets real cold in the shade or garage.

You might just need a recharge.

Well I tried to recharge it but it was already full, It did it to me again it was working fine (cool but not cold air) then it went back to blowing hot air again and it still has a full charge?

I second that it might be overfull. This happened to me last fall, I kept putting more freon in but it only got worse. I think mine also had moisture in the system that was freezing up the orifice tube. After the shop evacuated the system and properly charged, it works now. Although I've noticed that the AC system still isn't as cold as my 08 Sierra but it does okay.
