Hi, sounds as though you may have several problems, or I should say there are several things that will cause a unit to short cycle and then shut down. First of all, the head pressure in the system if it is getting to high, will cause this unit to shut off on its high pressure switch. When it shuts off the pressure will drop and the switch will reset on auto and start again just to do the same again. Shut the power off to this unit. Take a water hose and give the coil that surrounds the condenser a good washing out. Be careful not to bend the fins down on it as this will prevent air from being released to the outside air. Use a nozzle and adjust it as needed. If the problem was a head pressure problem, this will stop it from short cycling. If I were on site with my manifold gauges, I would no right away if it was a head pressure problem. After doing this, if it starts to do the same thing again, being low on freon will also cause a system to short cycle. If it was fine 2 days ago, I doubt if it is low on charge. Make sure the outdoor fan is up and running as this will cause it to go off on high pressure cut-out. This does sound like your problem. What happens is the coil gets dirty over time and the air can't be removed properly. The compressor will start and the pressures will rise very fast and shut of with in a few seconds. After a few attempts to run, the compressor will lock out on internal overload until it cools off and resets its self. It may take 5 to 30 minutes for it to start and try again. Do the cleaning process I have asked not getting water directly into the electrical control panel, but give this coil a good washing. If this system has a return air filter somewhere, make sure it is clean. Do this and get back to me and let me no if this solved or helped at all. If not, we can go from there. Just look me up with my user name. I do believe its just a plugged condenser coil. The symptoms are as you describe to me. Please get back to me.
I hope the best to you,
