Air conditioner runs for a few hours and it works - it cools the house. Then it stops cooling - the fan still runs but it doesn't blow out cool air any more.

I replaced one of them already with another brand, now I have to replace a 2nd one. I can't really afford to do this. Is it possible that they have both run out of Freon? Otherwise I

Great site. I have a Simplicity SPAC 8499-5 Portable Air Conditioner and it was working fine up until yesterday (~2 years old). The unit is running and the fan operational but while the green light for Cool/Dry is illuminated that actually cooling unit for the air conditioner is not kicking in.
