the appliance man is offline, do you hear the white box on the side of the compressor clicking or buzzing about every five minutes or so? you probably need to replace the relay start device in this, Compressor start device. - Click Image to Closeyou can get this kit here, http://midwayparts.net/midwayparts/zen-cart-v1.3.8a-full-fileset-12112007/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=11&products_id=75 for around $36.00, cheaper than most places. hope this helps. thanks Bryan

now not even cool air is coming

Sir do you hear a buzzing or clicking sound?

Unplug the unit and pull the white box off the side of the compressor

shake it over your hand. Do particles fall out?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I'll try, take a few mins
yes loose parts inside and pepper flakes come out when shaken
how can i get this on a sunday?

The part linked above is the part you need...

The compressor could have caused that part to fail

but its not likely. Its worth a try and either way you

will need that part. I do nt know where you could get it

on Sunday. Most parts places are closed.
