Replace the run capacitor. It is a silver cylindrical object located in the electical compartment of you outside unit. There is most likely three places on the top where different color wires are attached. One is marked F,or Fan. The center should be marked C, or Common, and the last should be marked Herm, with wiring to the compressor. Make sure you write down or label each wire you remove and it's correct location. They must be installed on the new part just like they were on the defective part. For you to know which dual run capacitor you need, the old one will have printed on the side either 370, or 440 v,as in volts. You must also need to know the microfarad rating and it is also printed on the side with the voltage rating. Since this is most likely a dual(runs fan and compressor) you should see two ratings abbreviated as mfd. Something like a 5mfd for the fan motor and perhaps a 35 mfd for the compressor. CAUTION !!! This device has line voltage and you must insure the power is off at the disconnect/ breaker BEFORE you begin the repair. Sounds complicated but really only takes a few minutes. The main thing is getting the right mfd and voltage ratings for the new part and keeping a record of where the wires were mounted on the old one, and putting them back the same place on the new part.

SOURCE: Tempstar smart comfort 2200 air
There are quite a few things that could do that...
First... a bad t-stat or transformer.. is the indoor blower running???
Next, one of the limit switches has shut down the outdoor unit....that could be because of either high or low refrigerant pressure...
Fuse blown in the outdoor disconnect....
Low voltage wiring to the outdoor unit bad...
Contactor coil in the outdoor unit bad or contactor points bad....
Any of these things could cause what you are observing....to troubleshoot this you will need to be able to use an electrical meter properly and check power flow till you find the problem...

There is an issue with your outside unit sounds like one of the terminals on your compressor is arching
