I suspect you mean that it's not cooling at all. If it's running for several minutes and then shuts off, the thermostat (# 216787700) will probably be the problem. In this case, set it to a colder temperature. If it’s already at the coldest setting, the thermostat will need to be replaced.

If it only runs for a few seconds or less, the problem will be with the compressor or the start kit on the compressor. A technician will have a kit that can determine which component has failed. Without this kit, you can take a chance and replace the start kit (# 216649305 and # 218909911). If the compressor still won't run or runs and quits, the compressor will need to be replaced. If you would like to have a technician check it, I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website:

when i plug in the unit it will actually run long enough to freeze on the lower settings, maybe several hours. Then it just shuts off. unplug it and plug it back in it will come back on.
