Question about Heating & Cooling
Hampton Bay 5200 BTU window air conditioner cycling on and off very frequently. We use it upstairs for our child and it runs great when first turned on and cooling down the room. The problem is trying to maintain the temp. It will run for anywhere from seconds to a few minutes and then turn off for a few seconds or minutes. It has even turned on for seconds, turned off and then turned back on before the fan finished spinning. This is all with the energy saver mode. If set at 73, it is as if the unit is shutting down at 73.9 and turning back on at 74....that is how much it cycles on and off. Thanks for any help/tips

Sounds like a leak to me - if you have a set of guages available (know anyone working in the refrigeration field???) you could tell this for certain. Otherwise, try running it when it cools down outside and see what happens. Take a stick thermometer, and put it in between the fins on the INSIDE condenser coil. If they get cooler, but not down to about 50 degrees, then you are low on refrigerant.

SOURCE: Energy Saver setting
Could not find a manual, but that setting is the setting that you choose to leave on and let the air conditioner decide the most effecient way to run during the day. There are too many ways to approach that answer in a small conversation. There are many things to consider and I will leave you with a link to a PDF that explains better of what I am writing.
