The compressor is probably going out on either a pressure related or heat related overload. Both are a result of low refrigerant. There may be a low pressure safety swich that protects the compressor. Otherwise it may be an internal thermal overload that is tripping. It resets itself and comes back on. The thermal overload heats up and shuts off the compressor to protect it from too much heat which is gernerated by not enough refrigerant in the system to keep the compressor cool. It may be cheaper to replace the unit than have someone try and fix it. It is pretty time consuming and you cannot try it yourself unless you have an EPA Certificate to buy the refrigerant. Check with your local appliance repair man to see if he will tackle it.

I had a similar problem with my AC last week. These newer capacitors no longer have PCBs in them. The stuff they use now just ain't as good. As a result their are more capacitor failures tan ever. I would check that. If the cap looks swolen its probably bad.You should also try and lubricate the motor. Use HVAC oil $2 at Ace hardware store.
You gonna have to slide out the unit a little to get to the motor. Have rags ready.

Your text "will not blow out" indicates lack of air flow.
There are two posiblilities:
The upper blower wheel has failed (evaporator coil) OR the lower blower wheel has disintegrated (condenser coil in cooling mode) - which is very common on this Soleus Air model. The blower motors are very good and rarely fail.
Unplug from outlet, remove the six phillips head screws which secure the back to front of the appliance. Look for many broken pieces of your blower wheel.The proceed to www.soleusparts.com and order a blower wheel replacement kit(s).

Testimonial: "Thanks for the speedy reply and your time."
SOURCE: Where does the water drain
The unit should be angled back to the outside. The water will run thru a tube from the indoor coil to the outdoor coil, then most fan blades have a slinger on them that picks up the water and throws it on the out door coil, which makes it more efficient but after time the water and dust will pile up on the coil and require cleaning at some point. If you clean the coil you can extend the life of the unit quite a bit. So you may not get any water to drip outside.
