Is this a wndow unit or central air system? if this is a window unit , your problem is it only needs cleanning (dirt dbber nest-- trash around the back blades-- or the unt is twisted and rubbing the fan shroud. Last but not least, the slinger ring around the back blades (a ring around the end of the blades thats picks up water in the bottom of the unit and sling it on the coils to help cool the hot gases....Thank-you Thank you Thank you very much!
Had same problem with Ge AC. Unplug take out of window and remove all cover screws. Pull up on cover and pull cover off ac, Remove front cover as well there are a couple screws in the front. When looking at front of ac, hit the Styrofoam housing towards your left (towards control panel). Spin fan blade to make sure that it is clear. Plug in to double check. I put a couple quarters between the styrofoam and the metal housing, so it would not slide back. Also tape the styrofoam between the seams this helps with better cooling. Use some good tape nothing cheap. I used black duck tape. It took about 20 mins. The hardest part is re installing the AC.
Have someone check the run capacitor of this unit. If the run capacitor is bad over shorted it can cause the unit to run and short cycle on a current overdraw. This makes for an electrical imbalance in the compressor motor. Next step is the compressor is faulty.
