Hey there, thank you for asking about your 2011 Nissan Rogue. When the compressor pump starts to make noise, combined with not blowing cool air, there are many possible problems. It is quite possible that the compressor itself has frozen. It is also possible that being low on refrigerant could be related to not blowing cold air. I would suggest having an expert from Your Mechanic come to your home to diagnose why your AC won’t blow cold air.
