Possibly it's low on refrigerant gas. If you are a do-it-yourselfer, you can buy the proper gas and follow the directions carefully. You can not hook it up backward, they make the nipples different so you don't blow up the can and yourself pumping gas in to the new can. Otherwise, it may cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $75 to have it done. Hopefully that is all the problem is, good luck!
