The cost of repairing could be as expensive as replacing with a new one. We replaced both roof A/C's with 15K units for $1200 including new thermostats.


Two 15k units and thermostats installed for $1,200.00
That’s the deal of the century.

Just had my unit up front replaced. Tech said they don't have a port to add freon and that braising/soldering in a port requires torch within inches of foam insulation. He said he wouldn't take the risk of fire for any amount of money. It took him less than an hour to replace unit and I found several a dealers within a hundred miles (and I am in the middle of RV nowhere land -- only one dealer within 50 miles and most are 70-80 in opposite directions)

Most any air cond can be repaired but unless you are an A/C
repair man or a died in the wool handy man ( DIY guy ) you are
better off to replace it and go have fun .
Paying a repair man is going to be a money losing route most
of the time if you can even find one that will work on it .
Save yourself some grief , who wants to be miles & miles from
home and no A/C ? Not me
