Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

If the thermostat reads HOLD then the programming is bypassed and the system should maintain the hold set point, 72 cool/AC. It sounds like you have a problem with the AC equipment which is not something you should have to deal with given you are renting. It's a job for a pro and the landlord is responsible.
