I know this is not the problem you have but my A/C had a problem where the expansion valve was stuck open. The A/C was ice cold when first turned on but after 10 minutes or so the system would freeze up solid and no air would flow through the vents. The expansion valve was replaced, the system recharged and it has worked to spec ever since.

Is it possible your expansion valve is not opening at all? They can get plugged.
Hum, that expansion valve could be the issue. Is the expansion valve supposed to closed off while the air is on?
