Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am HVAC Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now. NOTE it takes time for me to type research and add links so please wait for me to respond back I can only do this so fast. Secondly I am not paid anything until you rate my service good using the STAR RATING LINK at the top of your page, the money is paid to the site not me directly.

Is the compressor actually running?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
it is running
Expert:  HVAC Guru replied 4 months ago.

OK do you have freon gauges or can you go to the evaporator coil in the plenum? See if the copper lines are icing there at all.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
They are not icing
Expert:  HVAC Guru replied 4 months ago.

OK then the unit may just be out or really low on freon, you would really need a gauge on the suction side to at least tell something more, but it sounds like it is either out of gas or the compressor may be bad and not pumping gas.

All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am paid anything through the are greatly appreciated so thank you very much for using this service. If you have any other questions just post back to me here anytime!
