With the a/c .. its one of those Samsung units that you put on the wall.. it's a thermal pump. The remote for it works fine. Tried resetting the fuse. Got up on a ladder to try to mess with the external controls.. nothing.

Trust me, I'm a fan of trying to fix it yourself rather than calling someone. One time fixed the washing machine by taking it apart and removing a small child sock from the hose.

But in this case, I think it might be potentially dangerous to try to troubleshoot it myself.

The bedroom is not sleep able right now. We've moved to the basement and the baby is sleeping in the playpen right now with a fan on her, in the basement. She was up every hour last night, due to the heat (have the crib in the bedroom). And I was not planning on going through that again tonight. Right now, she's slept for 3 hours straight so far.. so it's a lot better.
Other things you might see - obstructed drain from the unit...a model number which leads to a troubleshooting guide...

If you go to the troubleshooting guide though, you might find the analysis quickly requires a multi-meter. Some units (like my fridge) have a diagnostic routine, which then yields an error code. On my fridge, I think I turn both dials up to 4, then switch the lights a few times...can't exactly remember.
I could see if there is a model number.. Where though? Maybe at the bottom of the unit. It's up on the wall, about 12 feet
