Thanks for your question.
You have a sealed system issue. On that unit it was very common for the compressor to go bad and just not pump correctly. Then the freon does not reach the correct pressures. You should check and feel the compressor. If it is running but barely warm that is the most likely issue. The repair is typically expensive about 650-750 to repair from a company.
