Question about Carrier 38CKC036 Air Conditioner
It was suppose to be fixed still the same problem it just keeps running and not cooling.iiiiiiiiit is two years old confortmaker,
With the outside unit running place your hand over the fan. The air from the fan should feel warmer than the outdoor air. You said in one of your comments the big line felt cool. It should be like a drink can you just pulled out of a cooler of ice. The small line you said was warm. It should be closer to hot. Are you sure the compressor is running? It can be hard to hear over the fan noise. If you or someone there can turn off the power then disconnect one of the fan wires so it doesn't run then turn the power back on and set the thermostat to call for cooling and see if the compressor is actually running. Let me know what you find or let me know if you aren't sure about disconnecting wires.

While running, feel the bigger pipe outside, under the black insulation. If it is cold to the touch and if condensation is building up on it, that is a good indicator that it is properly charged. If it is warm, and you can hear the compressor running (humming noise while outdoor fan is running), that is a good sign that the unit is undercharged. The only way the unit is under charged is there is a leak somewhere. Do not let anyone tell you that the refrigerant needs to be swapped, or has gone bad, or just needs to be "topped off". The system should be perfectly sealed, and without leaks. First, I would check to see if the outdoor unit is running with the indoor unit. Then I would check the big pipe to see if it is cold. Hope this helps.
