Default HELP NEEDED!!!!! A/C PROBLEMS

Last year I replaced the compressor on my 1991 SSE and the guy that installed it didn't do something right and it ended up only lasting through the summer. Luckily the compressor was under warranty so the parts store replaced it and I got it installed today and charged but it'* not blowing cold air. It is cycling on and off but no cold air. What else could the problem be?????

It is starting to get hot here and I NEED air. PLEASE HELP!!!!

If it wasn't installed right there could be crap in the lines which the orfice tube caught, so definately replace that.

The orfice tube is located in-line with one of the lines, it'* the main one going into... i forget what it'* called. The silver canister next to the passenger corner of the windshield. I think that'* where it is. But they tend to get colgged a lot.
