CLEAN IT
take the case off.
look at all the filth in the back fins.
get that out without puncturing anything
or cutting your fingers, or breaking the fan, etc.

Use a hose and MIST spray.. a hard spray will bend the fins
Use 2 dull hacksw blades to straighten fins if many squashed.

Bonus: find the oil hole caps on motor, open, add oil (10w30 fine)
Reassemble.

Of course this wont work for punctured units, dead motors, compressors, etc.. but filt is your #1 A/C killer.

Get cleaning! Do it once a year, before it gets hot.
