This may be a bizarre assumption, but I'll shoot it out anyway.
Does anyone here have any knowledge of air-conditioner repair and troubleshooting?

My A/C supplied by my apartment complex is supposed to cool off, at minimum, the livingroom, by at least 10 degrees.
It cannot do this, even with all my equipment powered off.
The best I have seen is a temperature stabilization, and maybe a 2-3 degree drop.

At this point, my power meter is spinning madly out of control.

Now, after about 6-12 hours running, I have racked up an obscene power bill, and the a/c has formed hard ice around all the coils. Air barely moves anymore.

I've used fans to try to assist air movement, and all that. The complex has replaced it once at my request last summer, and nothing's changed.

The question: Are they giving me shitty air conditioners (Yea, I know they suck, but are they DEFECTIVE is the question), or is it normal for this to behave in this manner, or is it something I can easily fix?
