However, if the thermostat is not adjusted properly or if it is too high or too low compared to the room temperature then it will not cool or heat the room.

Always check for the thermostat’s switch if it is set properly on the desired temperature. Another way for you to know what’s wrong with the unit is by turning off all power sources form the unit and check the coils or blowers for leaves or other elements that might be blocking the air flow.
