Jonas from Sweden here.
I have found that the AC compressor starts for just some seconds and stops for about 10s and then starts again. As it is quite cold in Sweden now it is tough to do a complete AC test.
Tesla SC may want go exchange the complete compressor but I have 300miles to nearest SC and I do not want to Change it as they are not 100% sure and I guess this Will be very expensive. I have read it might also be problems with the DC/DC converter that may give the same type of problem? Last summer i had some problems that the AC did not cool the air that much but after a software update the function was ok again. I thougt it was problem with low level of AC- gas bit it might was settings for the gas preassure?? . Sorry for my English./ Thankful of any suggestion. Of Course I can Change to used parts, if possible.
