Air Condition making strange noise. 2011 overland

Anyone's A/C sound like it changes speeds alot while it's on? For example it'll be on whatever speed setting and then get either louder or quiter like it switches to recirculated or powers up or down a setting or two and back but I didn't touch anything and no display settings are changing and it's NOT on Auto. Doesn't feel like it's blowing any harder/softer either when it makes the sounds, it just sounds louder. I have the Hemi if that makes any difference.

YES! Mine does that. When I'm idling it will slow down till I speed up. Just was thinking today if I wanted to tell the dealer or not. I also have an overland.

I just looked it up in the manual. It appears that it has an auto recirculating feature that will sense humidity levels and switch back and forth as needed. Guess that's it.

My A/C starts to "whistle" from the lower passenger vents under the dash, by the floor. Anyone else have this? It does it after driving for about 20-30 minutes....and it is very slight, but very noticeable. It's an annoying whistle....as if the fan is squeeking, etc.

JGC Limited does the same thing. Also the air is not very cold. Less than 10000 miles so far. May have to bring back to dealer. Anyone else with this issue?

I have right at 13,000 miles and I just recently noticed that the AC is not as cold as it was when I purchased. Of course, it was December, and now it is May and really hot in Florida. I am thinking I need to take it in to be checked.

YES!!! It is driving me crazy. I have it at the shop right now and they told me the other day that it is normal and they told me if I put the windows down it lessens the whistle. NOT THE CASE! Still makes the same whistle coming from the passenger side floor. It drives me crazy, so you are not alone in this!
