Default A/C issues

Hi I just bought a 2003 pt cruiser, have had it 3 days and the a/c blew frigid cold. Then all the sudden you turn the a/c on and sometimes the compressor clutch dosent kick on, but randomly it will kick on an run for awhile or not kick on at all. When it does work its ice cold. When the clutch dosent kick on it just blows air. Had freon level checke by my mechanic and was told it was purfect. He also stated that he didn't believe the compressor was bad. As he wanted 70 an hour to trouble shoot the problem I woul see if anybody else had previously had this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all in advance.

Intermittent problems like this is sometimes hard to diagnose. Sometimes it just needs to fail. One part you might check would be the "low pressure cutoff" switch on the accumulator.
