Not getting cold anymore

I have a Goldstar GWHD5000. Used to be that I would wake up freezing cold with it running but now I wake up and my room is warm, not at all the way it was. It is only a couple months old. When I put my face/hand up to it, I feel the cold air but it is not getting my room cold anymore. Any fixes or anything I can do?

Thank you in addvance!

Unit has probably lost its charge of refrigerant.

Check for warranty, or buy another one.

Usually they are not worth repairing, sorry

I have a goldstar room air conditioner.GWHD5000. Cani just plug it into a room . i have no window .


Hi,
You could and it will blow cold air on you if you are sitting in front of it, but the net effect is that it will actually end up heating the room up hotter overall, because you are not discharging any heat outside and you are running motors now that create more heat..

Air conditoner model gwhd5000 goldstar does not cool


Hi, first you will need to know, what type refrigerant,(freon) your a/c used, if you need to add freon, there's a leak in your a/c. you will have to find and repair leak, before you can charge/ add refrigerant(freon) . automobile a/c can be easily recharge (add) to system, but your window a/c unit, has the same principles but different approach, if you don't have experience, you will have to call mechanic, make sure you have a freon leak, before calling mechanic, plug a/c on let it work, put hands close to a/c, feel or check temperature of air blowing out from a/c, make sure compressor is working/running, fans could be working/ but compressor not, also put a/c thermostat to max, your model no. GWHD5000. means your unit is 5000 b.t.u, (british thermal unit) measurement of heat transfer, am wondering if a/c is to small for your space/room. making you think it needs freon, 5000. b.t.u. is for a small space,like a room 10' by 10' like a storage area or small bedroom, keep bedroom door/windows shut. measure you room/space/area , the bigger space/area needed to be cooled, has a chart, maybe you can find it on internet, any way a 10.000 or 12.000 b.t.u a/c is better buy, for normal room/space etc. so check compressor especially to make sure working, a/c could be to small for space/room, check it at night to see if it's colder. don't try to put gas/ freon yourself, could be very dangerous. but before calling mechanic, check those thing, mention before, could be your a/c are to small, for space/room etc. remember before attempting any repairs, disconnect power. good luck.

GoldStar model GWHD5000


Make sure that the unit is properly mounted in the opening (I take it it's in a window) and that it is level or at least not tipping inward as in the outside being higher than the inside. If unsure about how to mount it properly, consult your owners manual. Your installation should be reasonably close to the illustrations.

Yes there is a hole in the rear underneath.  Make sure that it is not plugged.  The ac needs to be cleaned every year for good workmanship.  Make sure that the ac is tilted back allittle so the water or condensation will drain.  Sometimes I've seen one where it was tilted towards the inside of the house and the fan would pickup some of the water and put a mist in the house which is not good.  If We can be anymore help let us know and thankyou1
