Usually when a unit isn't cooling it is because one there isn't enough freon in the unit. Second there could be a compressor gone bad. Third there could be a circuit short out. It can be very simple and it can be costly. It just needs to be checked out by someone who has understanding in this area.Look for an affordable service man or company in your area whom most people may be using to come out and check it out for you. They would be glad to. They can let you know about what it might cost also. If you have understanding in this area you might do it yourself. I do most everything myself and it keeps alot of money in my wallet. But I have to take the time to do it.

SOURCE: Air conditioner wont cool
the compressor has a capacitor that helps to start the compressor if the compressor does not reach the speed required to jump from the start coil to te continum work in about 10 sec the termic protector disconect the compressor for about 5 minutes but the blower or fan does work just blowing the air and that is not cold

if you used it alot, i would check it for freon.
checkthe air filter, make sure it's not dirty.
check the front panel, make sure there's no "ice/frost" in the unit.

SOURCE: Water level float switch error
You do not mention the model, I presume that it is a cassette, in which case the float switch is located in the indoor unit. You have to remove the cover which is 4 screws. First make sure all power supply is turned off. Then remove the drain pan which surrounds the fan blade. You will see in one corner of the unit a slightly deeper part of the drainpan, this is the corner where both the condensate pump as well as float switch is located. Before you do any of this, give a serious blow into the drain pipe from outside and this may dislodge any sludge which may be causing the floatswitch to stick. You can also pull out a rubber plug which is under the pump on the drainpan.

If there is air moving through the vents most likely the final stage transistor(blower resistor) has failed. It controls blower speed from a signal from the ihka (a/c control panel). the final stage receives the signal from the ihka of the drivers preference blower speed. the final stage pwm (pulse width modulates) the blower motor. which means it turns it off and on very quickly to speed up or slow down the blower motor speed. It isn't the easiest part to replace. Usually at a dealership i would expect to pay somewhere around $600 (including diagnosis)but don't hold me to it. bmw dealerships stand behind their repairs and usually include a warranty with the part of 2 years unlimited mileage.
