There could be many possibilities for your A/C not to work. When you added refrigerant to the system, was it low on refrigerant or did it get overcharged? This is a possibility and you may be still low on refrigerant.

The diagnostic of your AC will save you money in the long run rather than throwing parts at it hoping that it fixes it.
