hello Kelly, sorry for my late reply... model number is XXXXX when i turn it on it sounds like a fan blowing...the compressor is working but hard to hear it clearly ascits mounted on side of house near the roof. cheers

If the compressor is running with no cooling happening, you have a sealed system failure that will require professional service. This type of repair is not a do-it-yourself repair and requires specialized skills and equipment.

thank you... any suggestions on who i should use to address the problem?

Is this in a bedroom sized room?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Yes it is

You can replace the AC unit for less than a sealed system repair. I would recommend replacing it. One of comparable size is available at the link below.
