Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

This is generally caused by the refrigerant being low.

It needs to be topped off from time to time.

When it gets low the compressor will "short cycle" which is turning on and off.

It turns on then it senses the pressure is not high enough because its undercharged so it turns off again then continues to repeat this cycle.

Get the refrigerant properly charged and it should be good to go.

Let me know if you need anything further and please be sure to rate my service so I get credit for helping you today. Thanks
