Central ac compressor keeps running

Sounds like the contactor is stuck. Turn the power off on both units and remove panel on condenser. Pull out on the contactor if engaged. Likely still needs replaced, it's going to happen again.

If its doing it over night or in several hours, you need to check the thermostat. Turn it all the way to the warmest setting and listen for the compressor to shut off. If the compressor keeps running at the warmest position your thermostat is shorted. If you do hear your compressor shut off , and the thermostat is working, you are probably low on refrigerant.

Will run and cool until the thermostat turns it off and will not start back up. Inside fan continues to run. Compressor is completely dead.

Dear jack289,
The thermostat is not working properly. When thermostat cutsoff the compressor Please turn the thermostat knob to higher setting if compressor starts working then please change the thermostat. The fan will run continuously since only the compressor is controlled by the themostat.

Replacing the thermostat should correct the problem. Be sure to install the thermstat exactly as the one you are removing, assuming it hasn't been changed prior. Hope this helps
