Is cap start only for start or run too ??? Is the start assist that is two contacts on cap supposed to be hot? Does it break contact when comp draws too much current??? Jim_mc956

Oh, the compressor motor's borked or overworked and overheating, or its capacitor failed short (perhaps the motor is shutting off from thermal shutdown...but you get to find out whether that's so. Be safe.) Alternately the temperature sensors have gone touchy on you. Once you gently vacuum it clean, try keeping incandecent bulbs in series with the compressor to get an idea of how loaded that thing is as it runs for those 5 minutes or so; the load might change more than you expect, just pay attention.
Hopefully you won't have to replace the compressor or motor; but it's doable if you're a certified technician with like equipment (so you can handle the refrigerant decently.) Most shops will streamline a bunch of similar jobs together to cut the waste and setup time.
Bigger conditioners are so much more efficient than little ones...syndicate the A/C?

Heat doesn't work on ac


You need to check if the heat strip is still good on it or that it is receiving power. If its getting power, then the strip is bad.

If the fan blows cold air the compressor is already on.

The capacitor's for running, too. The resistor across the capacitor is supposed to be warm but not hotter than boiling. Just disconnect the capacitor and check for a short if you suspect it; but it would be warm someplace.
The timer unit is usually reliable, but if it permits a thermal cutout after 5 min. and the cutout device is a little skittish, it could be either that cutout or a hot-side cutout (or thermostat) failure. Replace, don't bypass.

Comp shuts off


Coils could be dirty. Compressor could be getting too hot and cutting off. Will have one fan motor that turns condenser fan and evaporator blower.

Air conditioner problem


You may have an extremely intolerant cold control, a weak gaurdette on the compressor, a compressor motor winding issue, or maybe an oversized unit for the area you are trying to cool.
