The compressor keeps running after I press the power button. The unit runs fine, blows cold when its on but when I turn it off everything powers off like it should except the compressor. It keeps running for 5 to 10 minute finally I had to unplug it to make it stop.

    Hi @danielw this might be due to dirty coils. From this blog,
    https://www.repairclinic.com/RepairHelp/How-To-Fix-A-Air-Conditioner/91---/Air-conditioner-won-t-turn-off
    The condenser coils dissipate the heat as the refrigerant passes through the coils. If the condenser coils are dirty, they won’t be able to dissipate the heat as effectively. As debris builds up on the coils, the air conditioner will become less efficient, causing the air conditioner to work harder to cool down. If the coils are significantly dirty, the air conditioner will not be able to maintain the proper temperature, and the compressor will run continuously in an attempt to cool the room. Check the condenser coils to determine if they are dirty. If the condenser coils are dirty, clean them.
