A/C busted on '97 SW

So, is there a quick list of where I should start with the A/C? Something like:

1. Charged?
2. Compressor working?
3. Trinary switch busted?
4. Receiver/drier?
5. Something else?

Help? And yes, I assume that I should have the system evacuated first. Thanks.

See if the clutch on the compressor is working first. On discos and p38as they used to have to be shimmed with a washer. Then see if it has pressure in the system.
