The compressor is not starting either because:
1. The compressor has gone bad
2. The system is low or out of refridgerant. There may be a slow leak, when there is no refridgerant in the system the compressor will not start.
Re-charge the system with appropriate refridgerant, if the system has a charge already or holds a charge when you charge it then the compressor should start.
If not the compressor could be bad, sometimes you can get a hard start kit instead of replacing compressor. If the system does not hold a charge then you have to find and repair the leak before anything else...
Good luck. Please give good rating, it meens a lot to me....Feel free to contact me again...

Replace your thermastat or if it is a replacement check your wires to make sure you have them right. Refer to the instruction manual for setting the heat anticipator and the cooling anticipator!
Red to Yellow calls for cooling
Red to White is usually calling for heat
Red to Green calls the Indoor Fan
Red to Orange is the call to a reversing valve on heat pump units!

SOURCE: Will not cool properly.
You have either a faulty thermostat, dirty condenser and evaporator or a faulty run capacitor. Need to service soon before the compressor is damaged. Sea Breeze

check fins in the condenser coils (the fins on the outside part) for obstructions or alot of bent fins. should be free and clear. but chances are the freon level is low. can be serviced, but may be cheaper to replace.

It sounds like the coolant charge is marginal. There are sensors that can monitor the pressure levels and can disable the compressor to prevent damage to it. You need a tech to check the system before you lose it completely. Figure on $100-120 cost for check and recharge if needed.
