Stupid Question

Ok, I can't tell you how embarrassed I feel posting this, but I have to ask. My car didn't come with an owner's manual so I figured I could figure out how to turn on the air conditioning myself. Well.... no luck ...
Unless maybe there's something that isn't working properly.
I have an '86 300E. Since I see no button for the A/C, I figured I probably turn it on to one of the non-economy fan setting and turn the dial all the way over as far as it goes on cold. I never got any cold air to come out and I messed with the re-circulate button and a few others. Can someone please put me out of my pathetic misery? Come to think of it, I don't think I tried the defrost (very left) fan setting, but I don't think that would do it... or then again maybe im wrong. Please someone help me

You're on the right track. It's fully automatic, so any button except the "EC" button will run the A/C compressor, including the defrost button, if it's called for. The temp wheel being turned down to "MAX" blue should run the compressor. More than likely you are low/out of freon.
