Question about Heating & Cooling
Needs more info, but sounds like the thermostat is fused, does it ever shut off on its own. TXV could need adjustment, or low charge. both of these have other side effects, the evaporator will ice up pretty fast, long run times. without seeing some thing like this there is no way to know.

If the refrigerant has been accurately charged and diagnosed, I would look for an air restriction. Check your filter first of all. It sounds like it may still be trying to freeze up. Make sure all the vents are at least a little open and the return grill is not blocked. In the Rocky mountain region we like to see around 44- 50 deg. at the vents. 65 would tell us that everything is not ok.

Sounds like some of the elements are not working. You being in Florida they may not have put very many elements in. It was 61 degrees last week. I know because I'm a Dolphin Fan. You will need a current sensing meter to check the elements.

Testimonial: "Perfect... The problem was with the Defrost control unit... apparently the outdoor unit was icing up every night, defrost control element was bad!"
SOURCE: temp setting way off kenmore 580
Remove the window unit and dissasemble,and clean it out,careful not to bend the fins on the condense and evaporator,but clean them out,and the inside of the unit also,then see what happens,if the problem persist,then find the probe on the evaporator and move it away from the evaporator until the compressor stays on longer.

SOURCE: low charge?
System is running a 24°F superheat and a 0°F subcooling at those readings. Saturation temperature is approx. 30°F lower than return air temperature.
Indications are of a low system charge. Ensure all your filters are clean and there are no obstructions that are limited airflow across the evaporator coil. Ensure the coils are clean and not frozen up.
Have it checked out. Looks like a low charge but can't tell without being in front of it. As far as normal ranges, that all depends on many factors. Based upon the info you have supplied, I would guesstimate that the operating pressures would be in the neighborhood of 350/160 to start and get the subcooling and superheat in check.
