If after replacing compressor the compressor wont kick then check if the connection of your compressor terminal is correct, check for defective capacitor.

Compressor not kicking in on 'cool'; or ;dry'

Have you checked that the controls are not set to fan only? If you have lets go to the next step. All window A/C have thermal switch.. These thermal switch keeps the compressor from overheating. In the event that the compressor is overloading it would trip then click back on as the compressor cools down. Sometimes those switches go bad but the compressor is ok. They are mounted on the compressor themselves and accesable once the A/C unit cover has been opened.

I have a single room 8000 btu kennmore air conditoner was making loud squealing noise when compressor kicks on and now it makes no noise and does not cool at all please help

sounds like the compressor may have died on you. the compressor isnt running you might as well trash it sorry for the bad news but it probably isnt worth trying to replace a compressor in a system like that it would drive you crazy and take forever if it could even be done.

Whirlpool window air conditioner 20000 btu's not cooling properly

It is possible the cover needs removed and the condenser coils are in need of a good cleaning. (the one in the back that is outside).This assuming the compressor is running and it has not developed a leak and lost the coolant charge. Eric

Kenmore room air cond fan runs, no cool. checked

if the fan motor is on but the compressor is not : if the compressor has correct voltage up to the terminals and is not operating, the compressor is bad, if ther is not power to the terminals, the start components may be the culprit, if there is no power to the start componenets then the controller is the issue.
