Sometimes when I turn on the A/C. it doesn't kick on right away. Sometimes it does. The light illuminates on the controls, but it can take up to 5 minutes before cold air starts blowing, like the compressor isn't kicking on right away.

Does anyone have any ideas?

I don't think it's refrigerant. It blows nice and cold (knock wood) and goes from hot air to cold in a minute once it starts. I'm kind of leaning towards a dirty contact switch somewhere??
