I'm Burning UP!!!

I live in an apt with a very old window A/C unit. I am able to turn it on and the fan blows fine, but when I go to change to make the temp cooler it makes a sound likes it is trying to kick on but is just stalling and then goes back to just the fan blowing. I took the face off and the filter appears to not be too dirty. The sound is like an electrical sound of something stalling. There is alomost no cold air coming out...please help!!!!!!

If you live in an apartment what not call the office? It sounds to me like the A/C is dead.

well u really should call them cuz they have people who work on window units all the time but it does sound like the compressor is failing or has failed, ive never worked on an old window unit but thats my best guess. hide the puppy
