Default AC Won't Turn On / Possible Fan Issue

I have a 2003 PT Cruiser with a 2.5 L Non-turbo Engine.

When I try to turn on the AC, the AC Compressor kicks in, the fan does not. Although the fan kicks in when the engine warms up. The engine has not been overheating.

I have read that some AC problems occur when the fan does not kick on Low speed (needed for AC), but still turns on High speed (prevent engine overheating). I'm not sure if it's kicking in on low or not.

Things I have tried:

1) Added freon - AC worked for a short time (3-4 minutes). After a few mins, I heard a loud sound and then the AC no longer would cool. I attempted to add additional freon, with the same results. It sounded as if the freon was "forced or blown out".

2) Checked fuses - The AC Fan fuse is good.

Any ideas / suggestions ?
