Air Unit turns on...compressor works, fan turns on and then shuts off?

I just got this brand new air conditioner. I turned it on, placed the temp on 60. It seemed to start up (compressor was working) but there was no air coming out and then the unit stopped. It would come back on for a minute and then turn back off. HELP!!

Let me guess you drove it home on its side in your back seat and then plugged it in? Or like many stores with a surplus of product and limited space, there are some units that are stored on their sides by idiot employees, or ones that don't care they just want to get the freight put away. All of which will more than likely result in a dead air conditioner, refrigerator, or dehumidifier if the unit is not upright overnight before use. The refrigerant is also acts as the lube for internal parts and when stored improperly will all be located in the coils, and not in the compressor where it needs to be. You plug it in and the unit will overheat and die. Either that killed it or it was DOA, go back and exchange it. Why bother troubleshooting something you can exchange? If you did drive it home on its side don't tell them that, unless you are that guy who didn't put 50:1 in his lawn mower. Hack

Half of them acs come out the box distressed. LG stands for Lot of Grief. Get a refund and buy american texas made stuff like fedders or freidrich. Stop puchasing that worthless **** nobody has parts for.
What you need to do before you buy a product is see who fixes it how much it will cost and are parts available? These crappy units are fresh off of a container ship from a country that has no manufacturing standards whatsoever and does not intend to get any.

It seems like only fan is working no air. The switch is on cool and the temp at 60

Turn the temp all the way up and wait a munite then trun it down and listen for the compressor to come on. If it does not then it could well be the contactors. . Bad tstat, or the compressor gave up the ghost. also try unplugging and plugging it back in remember wait an minute or 2 before you plug it back in

My frigidaire air conditioner model FAA060p7a will not cool the fan works fine but on cool the compressor does not kick on, if I turn the the temp knob you can hear it click behind the knob like its...

The problem here is the compressor.... it has failed and will not start. You can try to replace the capacitor and see if it will go but most likely the compressor is toast. I t will cost more to replace it then to buy a new unit.

Fan works but compressor does not start. Its a brand new unit

By fan woks you mean inside unit right? assuming so, check remote control settings and battery, set 70 degrees, a light should come on at the display and seconds later, the compressor should kick in. If Unit is brand new, it should be it. If split units, try another remote, some times those remotes show the display but do not send signal strong enough that the unit can receive it. Try getting closer to the unit.

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.

Room temp stays at 76 and will not get any colder even though unit seems to operate and compressor sounds like it turns on and fan blows and water drains . it is set to 60. room is about 300 sq ft

From what you are describing the unit is working perfectly...You just have alot of heat infiltration and the best that unit can do is 76....
If you want or need it cooler you will need to buy a larger size unit...

Fan will not start

Some things you could check first would be to make sure you got all the packing out of it. May just be something blocking the fan blades. Make sure you have the right power supplied to it. Probably 110v 60 cy with a ground which is the normal house plug in the USA. If that's not the problem, I would call the place you bought it from and tell them what's going on with it. If you don't get help there, call the manufacture. In most cases they will have you return the unit for a new one.
