air conditioning on 1996 Toyota Corolla

In the mornings the a/c works perfectly well. I park the car for five or six hours and then when I use the a/c it would work normaly for about ten minutes and then it would start giving out hot air from the blower,what I do is to turn off the a/c for about 15 to 20 min and then restart it it would normal again as if nothing had happened.This is very common on very hot days as the temperature outside would be in the 30 deg celcius.What could be the problem? Plz advice. Thanxs.

Get it checked by a A/C shop or a Toyota specialist. I can't really give you a good answer without inspecting the system myself. If you want to find a Toyota specialist, here's our directory link for you: https://repairpal.com/directory?address=16427&car_brand_names=Toyota

Thank you for your suggestions, the a/c specialist. were not really helpful as some said this and some said that. I even had the whole thing serviced and recharged but the problem remained the same, that is why I started to look for answers on the web. Once again thank you.
