Hi if it just stopped, have you checked that the unit has power to it, no breakers that are tripped? Does this unit have a reset on the cord? If nothing is making a sound like it has no power, it probably doesn't. Check to see. It may have stopped on the high pressure switch tripping, but the blower motor would run, it would just blow hot air. You need to see if the plug has power also. It may have a short as these units draw a lot of amps, and will burn out a receptacle.Check all of these things and let me know what you find. It shut off for a reason, and it does sound as though it lost power somewhere. Look it over and keep me posted.

    I've checked the unit and I don't get anything from the test light or power.

Can I add freon to a Goldstar window air conditioner

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today. The only time you add freon to an AC unit is if you find a leak and repair it! If its not cooling well you should just clean the front and rear coils.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Does not cool room.

Goldstar WG5000 air conditioners use an R22 refrigerant. A charge kit containing the gauges needed to properly fill the unit, and the refrigerant tank/cartridge can be purchased to fill the air conditioner.

Compressosr stays on for only 4-5 minutes but room is still hot

What do you what for 99.00 dollars ( kidding)
It sound like the stat is defected or the unit is short cycling ( air returning to the Unit ) will shut the unit off. Try running the Unit on a lower speed and sett the stat at the highest.

Cooling motor shuts on and off...

No it is not normal. You might have a bad capicator to the motor.
Is your unit still under Warranty? If so. Call the service center.

Measure the temp of the air blowing out. It should be 20 degrees lower than the intake air at the filter. If not, we need to dig deeper.
