No oily residue. The temp by feel. Will be cold similar to the front when compressor is running. Then you hear it stop then the air is warm. The compressor will only run continuous for a few minutes at a time.

Since it's a sealed system. Could it be the compressor overheating because of a low charge?

Any chance you have a vent blowing on the thermostat? If the fan is on "Lo" is "Hi" and a vent is blowing on or close to my thermostat, mine will do what you describe.

on my Berk there is a white round sensor on the left of the bedroom door, about as big as a silver dollar. Try putting an hair dryer on it and see if the AC stays on. Perhaps the sensor is bad or disconnected. I think it routs back to the thermostat.

Yes sir. Thank you. That is a temp sensor for the thermostat. If the unit was turning on and off in auto that would be my guess also. My problem is different. The unit is in auto, fan is running but compressor doesn't stay on but for 2-3 minutes. The air never get close to called temp. I was hoping for a easy fix. Maybe time to upgrade to a 15k btu for the front and put front to the back.

Seem to always be the bedroom unit in the Berkshire. Mine has done it a couple of times but resetting the thermostat has cleared it up. Good luck hope you find out the source of the issue.
