Question about Amana PTH153B50AM Air Conditioner
We have this air conditioner in our sunroom. From the beginning the temperature set is not maintained. When the unit is set to cool no matter how high a temperature I select the unit cuts on approximately every 10-15 minutes and cools the room to about 66 degrees. When set to heat in the winter no matter how low a temperature I select the heat cuts on about every 10-15 minutes and the room will heat to a much higher temperature than selected. Any idea what the problem is and how I can resolve it?

I would replace the thermostat.
First - be sure and un-plug the Air Condtiioner from the wall.
When you 'select' the temperture I am assuming you are doing this with a 'knob' of some sort. This knob will be part of the thermostat - therefore it (t-stat) should be simple to identify.
Note: On some - LED/Electronic units - it may be difficult to identify the thermostat.
If, however, you can easily ID the t-stat - then you will have to dismantle the AC unit enough to get to the thermostat; it will be installed on/in the unit with screws of some type.
When you find the thermostat -- simply take the wires off the connections (these are usually - 'female' type spades that slide over 'male' type connections on the switch.
When you remove the wires be sure you mark them in such a way you can replace them on the "correct" terminals of the new thermostat without getting them mixed up.
It will be essential that the new thermostat - (A) physically fit the slot that the old one did, i.e. you can re-install it as the old one was and - (B) that it will have the connections you need - in order to connect your wires correctly.
If you take the old thermostat to an Air Conditioning Supply house they will probably be able to sell you an exact replacement - but in any event - an appropriate replacement - that will work.
