how much freon?? if it is not turning, then you cannot charge it.

was it working prior to you charging it??

Take you car back to the place that recharged your system and have them diagnose the issue. Chances are, your a/c system has a leak, the freon they just put in has leaked out resulting in the compressor not turning on (safety feature).
