** my guess is that it needs recharged... **

That is the least likely possibility (see the following link).

** how do i do it **

Specialized tools are required to recharge a window air conditioner, they are not like car units that can be 'topped off' if necessary. Also, depending on the refrigerant used in it, you may not even be able to purchase it, not being licensed.

** the fan runs and blows out air, but the air is warm. **

You mean it blows out the same room temperature air.

Is the compressor running? If not, someone would need to look into why.

The compressor not running could be caused by a defective thermostat, selector switch, a problem in the compressor's capacitor, overload protector, just a burned wire or a problem in the compressor itself.

And stays running??

** do you know where i have to re-charge the unit? **

As I stated, specialized tools are required to recharge a window air conditioner, they are not like car units designed to be 'topped off' when necessary. When a refrigerant charge is necessary in a window air conditioner (very rarely), access valve(s) have to be installed on the system.

I really think you should have someone familiar with the appliance check it out before you attempt to tampering with the refrigeration system. They are sealed on those units for a reason.

yes the compressor stays running...

thanks for the help.

how much do you think it would cost to have it recharged?

and if the compressor does not stay running, what should i do about that? and what could be the problem?

** how much do you think it would cost to have it recharged? **

*IF* it required 'recharging', maybe $150?

It's not just a matter of putting refrigerant in, the leak in the system has to be found and sealed first or you're just waisting your time.

** if the compressor does not stay running, what should i do about that? **

Is it not?

If the compressor doesn't stay running, someone would need to look into why. And lack of refrigerant would have nothing to do with it.

unfortunatly its a bigger problem with my window unit.

i might have to pay to have it fixed?

Than I *strongly* suggest you do NOT attempt to tamper with its refrigeration system.
