Question about Goldstar Heating & Cooling
Unit air is not cold all the time, will not cool 400 square foot room at all
SOURCE: Leaking aircon
THERE IS A TUBE OR CHANEL FROM THE FRONT EVAPORATOR DRAIN PAN THAT RUNS TO THE BACK OF THE UNIT INTO THE CONDENSER PAN. IT IS ALWAYS ADVISABLE TO THOUROUGH LY CLEAN ALL COILS, AND DRAIN PANS AND DRAIN LINES ANUALLY. IF THAT TUBE OR CHANEL WAY GETS PLUGGED IT WILL CONSTANTLY DRIP IN THE COOL MODE.,
IF YOUR A/C IS 110V MOST ALL ARE ABOUT 5,000 - 7,000 BTU''S ALL SHOULD RUN ON A SEPERATE CIRCUIT OR NOT HAVE ANYTHING ELES PLUGED IN ON THAT CIRCUIT.
MOST ALL WINDOW UNITS HAVE THE BTU'S RATING ON THE TAG INSIDE THE UNIT. THESE SMALL UNITS REQUIRE COMPLETE REMOVAL FROM THE WINDOW OR WALL FOR CLEANING. ONLY LARGER UNITS 10,000 AND ABOVE SLIDE OUT OF THE CABINENT FROM THE FRONT.
90% OF A/C I HAVE REPAIRED IN 40+ YEARS WERE DUE TO PLUGGED DRAIN LINES A DIRTY COILS. THEY MUST BE ALL CLEAN BEFORE I COULD START TO DIAGNOSE ANY PROBLEM BECAUSE THE PRESSURES VARY IF THE COILS ARE RESTRICTED WITH DIRT, ETC.

What size unit do I need for my room?
Use the following chart to find the appropriate size air conditioner to use:
AREA TO BE COOLED / CAPACITY (BTU/HR)
100 to 150 square feet = 5,000
150 to 250 square feet = 6,000
250 to 300 square feet = 7,000
300 to 350 square feet = 8,000
350 to 400 square feet = 9,000
400 to 450 square feet = 10,000
450 to 550 square feet = 12,000
550 to 700 square feet = 14,000
700 to 1000 square feet = 18,000
If the room is heavily shaded, reduce needed capacity by 10%
If the room receives a lot of direct sun, increase needed capacity by 10%
Add 600 Btu/Hr for each person in the room if there are more than two people
If the unit is for a kitchen, increase the capacity by 4,000-6,000 Btu/Hr.
if this helps please vote me a fix ya

It is possible the cover needs removed and the condenser coils are in need of a good cleaning. (the one in the back that is outside).This assuming the compressor is running and it has not developed a leak and lost the coolant charge. Eric
