Question about Heating & Cooling
Has it always done this, if so sounds like you need a higher amperage sub panel to supply the unit,otherwise maybe the contactor or compressor is going bad

I am not an a/c person, but am offerring up this one thing that I've heard.....
there are capacitors that are in the A/C unit's outside (compressors) and in the heating units (typically in the attic). If these get bad they can cause the compressors to have to work super extra hard and that can be what is causing it to get overheated - I'd be very very cautious at this point and spend the buck to have someone come out. If that is the case the compressor may already being in failure mode. We were fortunate. We caught it before ours went totally out, but for years it has been bad and has caused the compressor to work doubletime - call someone on this!

This a ground fault breaker. They do go bad. Is it kicking it all the time or when you plug it in. I replaced a lot of the ground fault plugs. You have to go to the Appliance Parts store to get a new power cord. If you have a problem with thisyour warranty should cover the power cord check your warranty. Rus

Any one with a window; these units must be cleaned at least yearly.First off,there is a filter in the front below where the cold air comes out,inside the intake grill(where the room air goes back into the unit.) it should slide out. Second the unit has another coil at the rear of the unit.The rear coil is hard to clean, but is possible.Check if warm air is going out at the rear.If not unit housing must come off to clean rear coil properly.After a year ,or two this problem will very probably blow the compressor.You should be able to call a few A.C. companies and see if they clean windows A.C. units.
