Question about Air Conditioners
If your outside condenser has a locked rotor or short circuit, than the unit WILL trip the breaker - as it should. On the other hand if a breaker is tripped a few times it will have less of a capacity that the rating, (this is designed in it). You will need to determine if the unit is locked (and broken) or the breaker has become too sensitive.

Possible low voltage condition would cause that kind of a problem. To small a cord without the ability to carry and maintain the voltage would cause a voltage drop. I would test the voltage supply and make sure it is within 10% of that required for your A/C to operate properly.

there is some moisture that is leaking near the power supply board in this unit. its a internal leak of some sort. it will need service soon. The musty smell is a dead give away when concerning an internal leak.

Try the FAN ONLY position and start it.
Could be a stuck fan motor or a bad capacitor..
Remove the cover. Have someone turn it on. Once they turn it on spin the fan by hand. If it starts and runs replace the capacitor.
