Is this motor thermally protected? Are you running it on 240 VAC and the pump is set up for 240 VAC? (120 VAC- and 120 VAC?). Pump is on its own circuit, or one adequate to supply the proper volts, amps and watts? No extension cords involved?????????

The motor does this because it is over heating for some reason ... improper voltage comes to mind.

You say it starts but will not run ... a faulty run winding comes to mind (start circuit is evidently ok)

Overheating can als be caused by an obstruction in the suction or discharge ...

A high temperature operating thermostat will cause a problem like this. Limit switches need to be reset, but operating stats don't. Be sure your blower fans filter is clean and the ducting and path up through the furnace is clear. Stay in touch. Roger

Defrost cycles needlessly for extended time period


Without knowing what the problem was with the old board, you're not going to be able to figure much out, I don't think.

Did you check that temperature sensor I mentioned? You will have to pull the top off to get access to it. Normally found connected to one of the tubes for the coil, silver in color, with 2 wires connected to it, near the bottom of the base of the unit.

Little Giant Condensate pump runs for 1 sec when res not full


Is there a check valve in the pumps discharge fitting? If there is it may be stuck open or broken allowing some of the water to return to the reservoir once the pump shuts off which then may lead to the brief cycle between full cycles.

If there is not one, install one to keep any water from backing back into the reservoir and that should stop the short runs.

AC is off but compressor cycles periodically


most likely your compressor contact is stuck closed, and will need to be replaced. if the fan also runs when the compressor comes on you may have a short between the t-stat and unit. hope this helps.
