Hello, yes, we answer questions about window AC

.

Tell me how big the room is that unit cools and about how old the unit is, that will let me assess the repair issues for you,

Next tell me what you have to do exactly to get the unit to run for an other 2 seconds,

If you have to reset the breaker in the house breaker panel, then the unit most likely has an electrical short in it

.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope by the time we are finished that I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. Rating will not increase your charges but it is how I earn a living

If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
