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. You need to have a mechanic with the proper equipment test the A/C to see if you have a leak in the system, a bad switch, or defective compressor. The diagnostic of your AC will save you money in the long run rather than throwing parts at it hoping that it fixes it.
