My Goldstar GWHD5000 window type air conditioner is running but it does not give out cold air. The thermostat setting is on max and the blower adjustment is on high. What do you think is the possible problem?

Do you hear the compressor running? Just because the thermostat is on high doesn't mean it is calling for cool. Do you hear a click or snap when the thermostat is turned from low to high? Possibilities are: Thermostat, compressor start relay, overload, gas leaked out, compressor failed.

Is there an internal adjustment screw on the thermostat in a gwhd5000 air conditioner or any Analog unit to get it to cool down to 40 degrees or so?


normally the adjustment was on the knob on the front
40 degrees f is equal to 4.4 c which is fridge temperature
and 40 degrees c = 104 f
air conditioners run best at 25 c =77f so it is pointless getting it any lower as you will be too cold to be comfortable

I have a goldstar room air conditioner.GWHD5000. Cani just plug it into a room . i have no window .


Hi,
You could and it will blow cold air on you if you are sitting in front of it, but the net effect is that it will actually end up heating the room up hotter overall, because you are not discharging any heat outside and you are running motors now that create more heat..

Air conditoner model gwhd5000 goldstar does not cool


Hi, first you will need to know, what type refrigerant,(freon) your a/c used, if you need to add freon, there's a leak in your a/c. you will have to find and repair leak, before you can charge/ add refrigerant(freon) . automobile a/c can be easily recharge (add) to system, but your window a/c unit, has the same principles but different approach, if you don't have experience, you will have to call mechanic, make sure you have a freon leak, before calling mechanic, plug a/c on let it work, put hands close to a/c, feel or check temperature of air blowing out from a/c, make sure compressor is working/running, fans could be working/ but compressor not, also put a/c thermostat to max, your model no. GWHD5000. means your unit is 5000 b.t.u, (british thermal unit) measurement of heat transfer, am wondering if a/c is to small for your space/room. making you think it needs freon, 5000. b.t.u. is for a small space,like a room 10' by 10' like a storage area or small bedroom, keep bedroom door/windows shut. measure you room/space/area , the bigger space/area needed to be cooled, has a chart, maybe you can find it on internet, any way a 10.000 or 12.000 b.t.u a/c is better buy, for normal room/space etc. so check compressor especially to make sure working, a/c could be to small for space/room, check it at night to see if it's colder. don't try to put gas/ freon yourself, could be very dangerous. but before calling mechanic, check those thing, mention before, could be your a/c are to small, for space/room etc. remember before attempting any repairs, disconnect power. good luck.

GoldStar model GWHD5000


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.

Goldstar Window A/C Unit Model GWHD5000


I recommend that if you have animal and you want to have the unit on all day that is fine if you have an ac unit with a thermostat and it is big enough to handle.  The unit that is in the window is ok if your home but it could cost alot if there is no thermostat because it will run and run and run.  Then if it don't cool the house enough means its not the right size.  The unit / compressor could overload and kick on and off and might not work when you get home and the house will be like a firecracker.   Best bet would be to replace it with a unit for the size needed for the apartment.  It would be effecient. if we can help further just let us know.

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
