Exclamation 2000 Tacoma, AC just stopped working

I have a 2000 Toyota Tacoma and all of a sudden the AC just stopped working. The AC light comes on, but the air temp doesn't change at all. I have checked all the fuses and I can't find a bad fuse. I assume that if the Freon was going low it would slowly get warmer and warmer, but never just stop all at once. Anyone have any advice for me on what else I can check. Prefer to try and fix myself first before I get raped by the dealer or repair shop

From what I can see the compressor is running (turning) just fine. The book I have doesn't give a very good illustration of where I am to be looking but I am sure I am in the right spot. All the belts are turning!

low freon

It is possible that your evaporater is frezzing up. Try this turn off air and put your control on outside air to force hot air over evaporator. Then after a while see if it cools with normal A/C.
