Your low on freon (the stuff that makes it cool). Do not run it because you risk burning up the compressor-the motor that pumps the freon (more $$$). Get it rechargedjake said:my air conditioning is not working properly,it will come on for a couple of minutes and then go off for at least 10 minutes, and continue to do this all day long. Please help!
Are you sure? It's working intermittantly. Sounds more like a switch problem. Is this the automatic climate control?ThaAcSwerver said:

The compressor does what it's name suggests, it compresses VAPOUR to LIQUID nothing more.what happens is the compressor builds up pressure (by way of the pulley) in order to compress the freon... when the pressure is built up enough it turns off... BUT when there is NO freon... the compressor will turn on and see that it cannot build pressure and then turn off
Your compressor (most) needs 20psi to be in the system before it will turn on.jake said:I had it fully charged today,and talked to the technician he said i do have a leak but he can,t find it. but 10 minutes after recharge it went off and stayed off for at least 15 minutes again. This is the second time in the last month getting it recharged,from 2 weeks ago it was down 3/4 of a lbs.
