They should recall alll Chevy Equinox no matter what the year is and fix that AC problem . I had pride in driving a Chevrolet . What has happen to me is I think my pride is as hot as that ____ Equinox is at about 3:00pm when I drive home from work.

Has anyone had this problem? My air works, then vapors come from the vents and the air is not cold anymore. When I turn the AC off for about 10 minutes, then turn it back on-it works-for a while. Sometimes the blower won't blow at high levels and recently the heater was on, even though it was on AC. I have taken it to my local Chevy Dealership and they claim it has no"codes" on their diagnostic machine, freon is good-of course they can never get it to fail. They want me to drive around until it fails and bring it in. Now that I've found this forum it seems A LOT of people have AC problems and Chevy knows about it. Any ideas??? They act like I'm crazy when I tell them about it.
I have been having the same problem. Glad to know it is not just me!

AC was blowing hot air. Now having a heatwave my husband had to do something for me !!!! Took dash apart nothing to show there. Lifted hood, and there at the firewall , passenger side is a little flap. Lift flap and inside you will find a filter, a proper filter ! Take it out and give it a good blow with air compressor. Ours was full of every dead bug and insect known to man. Replaced filter and Hey Ho my AC now blows cold air instead of hot air. Problem solved. Have to mention, the Chevy.Dealer we phoned for advice did not have the number or the filter in the Equinox manual or computer. He even argued that our Equinox 2006 doesn't even have a filter there ! Well, good news all you with hot air coming from AC = check under the hood, it is amazing what you will find ! Good luck, and hope this helps someone.
. Actually I think you are speaking of a fresh air (cabin) filter. Along the tray below the left side wiper. This not the answer of all answers. Blend door issues computer (ecm) issues.

I have had the exact same problem with my 2006 Equinox. Suddenly you start to get "steam" coming out of the A/C ducts after the AC has been on for a while. Then very little air blowing from vents. I imagined that there was ice buildup from humidity freezing inside somewhere. My fix is to turn off the compressor by turning it off manually (snowflake button not illuminated). Then turn temp knob to full hot. When air flow returned to normal, heat off, compressor back on and AC is OK for a while. Now its winter and I have NO HEAT at all. I am reading that it may be an actuator switch or a broken air mixing door. If its the door, the whole dashboard will have to be removed to correct it. It is definitely time to abandon ship. The car has otherwise been OK, but who needs to deal with this nonsense?
. Ice ain't steam. Vapor is the word.

I have the same problem with the air conditioning. It will be cold for the first 30 minutes and then change the condition to warm air. Anybody have any answer?

I'm trying to find the flap you are talking about & I don't see it! Can you explain where it is in any more detail? Thanks in advance.

You're not crazy I tried everything until we got to the AC temperature control module. It cost me over $3,000 to fix they have to remove the complete Dash including steering wheel shifter. The temperature control module is behind the glove box period it's a black control box with flaps inside when you turn the knob for heat they shut one door for heat and closes the one for AC. It's not an easy fix or cheap one at that period but now I have freezing cold AC after changing just about everything else including compressor ac lines recharging three times I have a new car now hope this helps

Correction when you turn the AC, inside the Temp control module it shuts the door for the Heat and opens the one for AC.

My girlfriends 06 is having the same issue as the OP. I had actually replaced the cabin filter not long ago so I'm sure that's not it. Every time she takes it to the mechanic they find nothing. We haven't tried the dealer yet. maybe it's time. Any other updates on this issue???
