No! You will not likely find any service on a product which has very little value. Frosting will sometimes happen if the outside temperature is to low. The outside ambient temperature is directly related to the pressures inside the refrigerating system. The lower the outside temperature is the lower the pressures will be in the cooling end of the air conditioner. In mechanical refrigeration pressures and temperatures are directly related.

    Frosting of the cooling coil can be caused by ether of two conditions. With a normal operating ambient temperature such as with you location there is a possibility you unit is a little low on refrigerant charge in the system or there is possibly a restriction in the refrigerant line feeding the cooling end of the system. However it would still come down to product value and cost of repairs.

Lots of water in unit spitting all over the floor nd itd not as cold as when i got it last year


how long you last service the unit, when last you cleaned the air filter. Drain pipe might be clogged. If it has been a year it is time to service it

Make sure that the unit is properly mounted in the opening (I take it it's in a window) and that it is level or at least not tipping inward as in the outside being higher than the inside. If unsure about how to mount it properly, consult your owners manual. Your installation should be reasonably close to the illustrations.

Do not run it on maximum cool and fan on low. Freezes up all the time this way.

Yes there is a hole in the rear underneath.  Make sure that it is not plugged.  The ac needs to be cleaned every year for good workmanship.  Make sure that the ac is tilted back allittle so the water or condensation will drain.  Sometimes I've seen one where it was tilted towards the inside of the house and the fan would pickup some of the water and put a mist in the house which is not good.  If We can be anymore help let us know and thankyou1

Not getting cold anymore


Unit has probably lost its charge of refrigerant.

Check for warranty, or buy another one.

Usually they are not worth repairing, sorry
