sounds like it is either low on Freon or the compressor is going out. The blowing ice cold is an indicator that it may be freezing up because the low Freon. when it stops blowing cold, turn it to fan only mode and see if it gets colder again. If that is the case then the unit is low on freon and freezing up. I know that sounds confusing but that is how AC works. The low freon pressure means the gas is expanding too fast and the air flow cannot take up the cold from the evaporator fast enough. Turning the compressor off and keeping the fan on will alow the room air to take up the cold.

Sounds like the contacts in a switch or relay are stuck together giving power all the time. Get someone with electrical training to check the power side of things.

Good Afternoon Friend, I understand that the thermostat is not cycling the compressor on and off on your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAM157S1A. Please check the temperature sensing element to see if it is touching a cold coil. This will be located behind the air filter. Straighten away from the coil if it is touching. The other possibility is the compressor shut-off by changing modes. Wait approximately 3 minutes and listen for compressor to restart when set in the COOL mode. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful. -Best Regards- WP

Turn the unit OFF using the ON/OFF Switch and unplug it for 15 minutes. After the time has elapsed, plug the unit back in and turn the unit ON. With any luck, the electronics reset and reverted back to the original factory settings. You should know immediately, once the unit is turned ON. If they did, you can now set the controls as you like. If they didn't, the control panel will need to be replaced. Parts are available from Frigidaire or their authorized distributor.

Hope this helps and thanks for choosing FixYa.
