Portable ac problem please help

I have a portable AC that the compressor kicks on very rough and shakes for a second, then it cools to about 60 degree air coming out of the unit, but it will only run for a couple of mins or so and than warm air comes out and the compressor shuts off violently again.

any ideas on what to check and how to check. Thanks

Sounds like it might be a lubrication problem along with low refrigerant. Unfortunately there is very little that can be done with these units by a DIYer and professional servicing is just not cost effective.

Sorry to tell you this but it is probably just junk. Worst part is that you cannot even toss it in the trash but will have to take it to a recycler and PAY them to take it.
