A/C compressor running but no cold air?

Greetings All,

I must be overlooking something on my wifes '86 300E as the a/c compressor runs without fail but the air entering the dash vents remains warm. What's the deal? Is the venting system not working or what? I felt the lines leaving the compressor and they weren't ice cold or even cold but luke warm. I would think that if freon was the problem the compressor would not operate at all unless it's defective freon or some PO substitute. Any and All input and ideas are welcomed before we really get into the heat and she wants to take my ice cold 300SD to work instead.
