Question about Frigidaire FAC107P1A Wall/Window Air Conditioner
Hello, if the filter, evap, coil, condenser coil are clean then most likely the unit if low on freon. most window units take either r 134a or r -22, it will say on the data plate on the unit. To charge freon into the unit a piercing valve will need to be installed on the low side of the system since most window units do not have acess fittings, piercing valves are about 10 bucks and can be purchased at any heating and cooling store. a easy to check if the unit is low on freon is take a thermometer and measure the air going into the filter and then the air leaving the unit, the differance should be 15-20 degrees, if not the unit is low on freon. But first verify everything is clean and airflow is not obstructed.

With the outside air quality you described, you'll have to clean the filter a lot more frequently. Maybe a total filter replacement would be better than cleaning in your case.
Let me ask first, do you hear the compressor kicking on when you turn it on?
Check the thermostat and see if it is set lower than the room temperature. Try setting it at least 10 degrees lower than your house. Listen for the compressor to kick in. If it does, close up the room and give it at least 20 minutes, then go in and see if it feels any cooler.
Do you have a programmable thermostat? If you do, change the batteries and see if that helps.
Don't just let someone put freon in your A/C when you don't know what's wrong with it. The added pressure, if it doesn't need it, can blow the unit for good.
Please reply back and let me know how it's doing after these checks. If it's still not working, we'll go further.
By all means, clean it! :>)
Compressed air is fine.
