Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 10 months ago

The fact that the unit is running means that your thermostats and electronics are all working. Unfortunately that means that if it's not cooling you either have a bad compressor or a freon leak. This is not something you can fix yourself I'm sorry to say. You would need a technician to come out and check your freon pressure to determine if you're low on freon or if you need a new compressor. If you're low on freon, a freon leak typically costs about $450 to repair and a new compressor is about $650 to replace if you aren't low on freon.
