Seems glitched..anyway to fix it?

The air conditioner used to be working fine, but all of a sudden it glitched, I can't turn it off, and the only way of doing so is to unplug it. It remains on fan and autocool, but the days are too hot, and the fan really sucks! The LED seems glitched as well. Here are a few pictures: (too big, can't ue the uploader)

E1-Automatic filter clean reminder.

Turn the air conditioner OFF and unplug it. NOTE: The air conditioner must be unplugged for the automatic filter clean timer to reset.

Clean the filter. See the Care and Cleaning section in your use&care manual. After cleaning, replace the filter and plug the air conditioner back in.

My unit keeps fluxuatng between cold air, then warmer air. It will start cooling then the unit seems to dim then amp back up sending out non cooled air.

Your compressor is drawing locked rotor amps. If the unit dims and then turns off a few seconds later, your compressor is going out on the internal thermal overloads. It could be a bad start capasiter or bad winding in the compressor. If you don't know electricity, it is not something I would recomend a DIY to fix.

Check the gas pressure, if it low it inhibits the relay that energises the compressor.

You have done a good job under the circumstances. It could be a bad start/run capacitor as well. It carries a lot of amperage so I suggest hiring a technician to check the capacitor and the motor.

Air conditioner suddenly not working

sounds like the compressor has frozen up, either by actual freezing or by needed lubricant. try to verify that it turns. if you have to, try this: power off, open it, attach separate wall cord to 2 wires entering compressor motor. did it turn?
