It sounds to me like the compressor is overheating and tripping on internal or external overloads. After the unit cools down again it will try to run for a little while. Then this cycle would start over. I would check the condenser coil for dirt and filth. This portion of the unit may be on the out and backside of the unit. You should at least be able to see light through the coil.
I believe the thermistor that you removed temporarily is used for a freeze situation. I do not believe that it is your problem. Good luck:)

Check that the fanmotor can spin freely. If not, can be caused by seized bearing on left side of fanblade, or foreign object, insect nest stuck in fanblade. If however it spins freely, check that fanmotor is being supplied with voltage (you sound technically capable of operating a volt meter). If power is supplied, fanmotor is faulty and needs replacing. If no voltage, problem lies with the pc board. If you know someone who is capable let them check the relays on the board. Also you can check that all plug on connectors are making good connection.

Remove the front cover of the unit to expose the cooling coil. Put the unit on and observe if there will be formation of frost (ice) on the coil. If there's frost formation, the common cause is dirty cooling coil. Have it cleaned using an alkali base coil cleaner. If the coil is clean, then the problem is the fan motor. It might be turning slow due to copper loss. Have it replaced.
