In the description from frigidaire's website, it says that my thermostat may be set too low. It say to turn the thing clockwise to a higher number with a screw driver(i think). I have a Frigidaire FAA065P7, 6k BTU through window mounted AC.
I'm thinking that they are talking about the actual thermostat in the inside of the machine casing, because it also says behind the air filter in the description. Since I am pretty darm positive it isn't talking about the one you control manually, I am thinking the one that needs to be adjusted is like the one in a refridgerator. Turn the knob to a higher setting.
Where is this knob(i know it's behind the air filter), so I can turn it to a higher setting?

check thermostat turn off system wait 3 to 5 minutes turn on to cool and turn thermostat to coolest setting if no compressor test thermostat and compressor check filter if dirty and coil iced turn off and lit defrost and change filter if coil warm and unit running compressor internal damage or low freon
Compressor may not be turning off due to satisfied temperature, it may be turning off on safety trip such as high/low pressure, current overload. When the thermostat is set to a certain temperature, the compressor cuts off once the temperature has been reached or satisfied, try a lower setting to see if the compressor satisfies the setting demand.
Some thermostats may be programmed by the installer to perform only a given number of cycles per hour, if your thermostat has this feature, eliminate the setting.
There could be a number of issues associated with this issue. #1 bad thermostat, #2 no low voltage from the furnace or air handler, #3 if gas furnace, no pilot(standing pilot units or bad ignition system). If you have a fan switch on the thermostat turn it to on and see if the blower comes on. I would also check to make sure the breaker is turned on. Over the years I have found many things that all have the end result you are seeing. I just named a few things you can try.
My guess is that you have gas heat. If this is the case, sounds to me like your main control board or depending on age of furnace, fan controller is not working. With gas furnaces, it utilizes 2 fan speeds. High for cooling, & Low for heating. Your thermostat only controls the High speed - switches when you turn your fan on & when there is a call for cooling. The only other thing I can think of is it is possible that the Low speed windings on the blower motor are open causing it to not turn on. Most motors have 3 to 4 speeds & only 2 are used. Switch the heat motor wires in the furnace (on the control board) with one that is on a spare terminal.
These unit are set up for continuous fan operation when turned on. It does not have an automatic position on your thermostat such as in your house. Set the fan speed to what you are comfortable with and let the thermostat control the temperature.
