I hate fighting with that a/c plan

My a/c is the worst a/c that I could ever have! When our a/c works, it is a appealingly frigid a/c! However, it rarely ever works officially… I don’t have a digital thermostat, so I have to turn a dial to a colder setting in order to feel it. Last year, when I was using this a/c, I had no problems with it. I could set the thermostat to the halfway setting, & the a/c would make our cabin downright frigid. I appreciate our cabin being cold, so I had no complaints about the lower temperature. When I had to stop using our a/c & start using our furnace, it was with a slight sadness. I liked our a/c. However, when I turned on our a/c this year, it did not work the same way. I turned the thermostat to the halfway setting, & only the fan came on, but as I continued to push the thermostat dial, I reached the ¾ mark, & the a/c finally came on, then sporadically, that setting would be good enough, & the a/c would make our cabin frigid. Other times, the a/c would make the cabin frigid, however after a while, the cabin would begin to moderate up again, however now, I have to leave our a/c at the highest setting for it to run. It makes our cabin particularly cold, however any lower setting will make the a/c not run at all. I am not sure what is going on, although I don’t love it, however maybe I should purchase a modern a/c.
