Does the condenser fan stay running by the compressor when it shuts off?

Then you would have a temperature control issue, the control that you set the temp to on the unit is bad. The issue is they do not make parts for that unit since they are considered disposable due to the price. You may be able to get the temp control out and see if any part numbers are on it and order one possibly as they may use it in another unit that they do sell parts for.

All I ask is...Please remember to use the RATING LINK ON YOUR PAGE by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today. Even though you paid the site they will not disburse any part of it to me until you supply a good rating. If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.
