Question about Crosley Heating & Cooling
You can try this. Remove the cover, spin the fan by hand and see if the motor runs well after this, if so, the capacitor or motor condensor is bad or has defective wiring. Replacing it should take care of the problem. Some capacitors are split capacitors, have two values and serve both a fan motor and the compressor. In this case, the unit can be rewired for individual capacitors or the split one replaced.

if you used it alot, i would check it for freon.
checkthe air filter, make sure it's not dirty.
check the front panel, make sure there's no "ice/frost" in the unit.

The compressor is not starting. The buzzing noise you hear is the compressor trying to start and then the thermal overload trips. When it cools it will try to start again. Could be a bad capacitor or the compressor is bad. These two units need to be tested to see which one is bad. A capacitor is inexpensive. If it's the compressor it will be cheaper to buy a new AC.

3 things it could be:
#1 problem with AC units - dirty coils, this leads to many other problems and is caused by neglecting to change filters monthly. You can buy coil cleaner commercially, but it is not the coils you see that get dirty. There is another set inside that is usually not visible. If you look outside and your unit is "iced up" there is a 98% chance that is your problem. Sometimes it could be iced and you can't see it from the outside. Solution, turn AC off and blow fan to thaw. When thawed, clean coils with coil cleaner and coil comb.
Relay switches, you already pushed it so you may have a bad switch.
These are the two most common problems. A mechanic will be quickl to say it is your compressor for $. There are normally only half a dozen things that go wrong if your AC is 10yrs or less. If it is over that, it could possibly have a more serious problem. (Secret hint - I have known AC's to last 30+ years if the filters are changed regularly. Letting dust and dirt build up on coils invites a host of other problems due to the stress it puts on the other components.

If the a/c fails to continue to blow cold there could be a few problems you can look for. First once you activate the system check to see if the compressor kicks in. You will hear the compressor humming . Once the a/c quits cooling go and see if the compressor is still running. If its not running its probibly gone into thermal overload (compressor overheated). If that is the case then you need to check to see if the coils are icing up if they are icing up then the problem is with 1) air flow restriction filter dirty, coils dirty simple repairs there replace filter, clean evaporator coil with a coil cleaner that can be purchased at a home repair store cleaning the condensor coil the same. 2) system is low on freon in which case the system will need to be recharged. Also, If you have a digital thermostat replace the batteries that may also be of some help. Good Luck on repairs
