The hotter the temperature outside the quicker my A/C shuts off. What could be the problem. The refrigerant is full and the compressor does work for awhile. I have a 2001 Volvo V70.

Are you saying the fan should come on as soon as A/C is activated? If so I don't believe it does. What could be the problem. I checked the fuses.

no but it should come on after the AC has been working for a few minutes (probably about the time you state your ac shuts off), the ac unit can detect if the fan doesnt come on and that may be why the ac shuts off.
the issue may just be the fan motor has died.
