Check to make sure that the cooling fan clutch is engaged. If it isn’t locking up normally then the fan will not turn fast enough at idle and cause the A/C to not blow cold at idle. The recirculating door actuator should be replaced to get the door working again.

I’d recommend having the fan checked out, a certified mechanic will be able to accurately diagnose the issue with your A/C and make any repairs that are necessary.
