Hi, it sounds like the thermostat is no longer reading the proper temperature, but without testing the compressor, it's hard to say.
To test the compressor, you either need a multimeter that has a clamp and clamp it around a wire that goes go the relay of the compressor. Or have a meter that can test amperage with pins and unplug the refrigerator . Then plug the pin in series with the relay to know how much the compressor is drawing...
Normally new compressor will draw between 0.9 amps and 1.2 amps...

Take care

I would like to set the cooling temperature on my LUX TX9600TS thermostat below 74 degrees. At this time I can not get it to go lower. Is there a way to change that ?

Lux tech support 856-234-8803. I Google your tstat info and there is a downloadable manual that explains it. If I read it correctly, set it to cool, hold menu button, when screen changes scroll to "cooling limit", enter 00(that's like a pass code), then it's probably set to limit at 74. Lower that setting. Now from a professionals opinion, someone may have set that to 74 because that machine may have a history of freezing up when set below 74. Most all cooling systems are designed for a 75°f indoor at 95°f outdoor temps and 55% RH(humidity). Anything beyond that is also beyond design specifications. So it may freeze up which has the potential of compressor damage.

I just purchased a kenwood a/c a couple of weeks ago it's a G130EK, 13,000 btu and it doesn't cool anything not even a 12 x 12 room. There is an opening that leads to a bigger room , but the...

Air conditioners generally cool the air 15 to 20 degrees. 80 degrees in return should be 65 in supply. 70 degrees in return should be 55 in supply. If the a.c. is in that range it is working fine and doing all it is going to do.

I have a 2 1/2 ton unit. If the outside temperature is 95 degrees. What should I expect from my unit in cooling my house.

If properly charged your unit should perform fine, having a dirty condensor at that temperature can cause problems not easily recognized.

A well insulated house should be able to maintain a 20 degree temperature difference whether its summer
or winter. No Mechanical cooling or heating involved
for at least 6-8hrs if not more.

If it never cools when it is 95 degrees outside the ambient outside temperature is not the problem.
At 95 degree out side air you should be seeing inside discharge air temperatures betwenn 48-55 degrees.

It is the load in the house that determines how long the unit will run at 95 degress.

What is the temperature setting for normal wine cooling?

It's between 55 and 65 degrees fahrenheit. If you're storing a lighter red wine, you'd want to keep it on the lower end (55 degrees). And for the darker (deep) red, you'd want to keep it on the higher end (65 degrees). All white wines should be on the lower end, and below. You can drop down to 50 degrees if you'd like. I hope this helps. Good Luck!

Changed a/c evaperator and compressor, runs about 48 degrees temp goes up when you slow down cant find screen in high side line.

Is your cooling fan working properly? Usually when going down the road, it will cool better due to more airflow over the condensor. If your cooling fans are not working properly, this will add to the effect. Is it going to like 60-65 degrees at idle, or like 55 degrees? 60-65 is cooling fans, 55 most likely normal. Would have to see what your gauges are reading to let you know for sure. The orifice tube you are looking for is in the high side A/C line near the evap core. Look for a place where the line can be undone, with dimpling to hold the tube in place.

I also want my air conditioner to cool to 55 degrees F or 12 C

12 degrees celcius equals 53.6 degrees Farenheit. You can have a unit hard wired but I don't recommend it. There are limitions to a\c units, they really shouldn't run if the outside temp is below 60 degrees.
