First off, I dont think you caused this problem by vacuuming the unit. It is possible that you did not leave much time before restarts but you then said you tried leaving it off for 5 minutes which should be adequate enough. f you let the unit set for a couple of hours before a restart that should be enough time for the compressor to cool down to ambient temp. I would then try restarting the unit, if it works leave it on for a while and make sure it is producing enough cooling. If there is no change in the situation I would suggest that it would need to come back out of the housing and check that the compressor is receiving voltage to it. It is possible a start capacitor or relay is the cause of the problem. If it started first time I would suggest it is worth having it checked by a professional as it could be the charge or the starting devices. First off though let it completely cool down and try again. Hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: Fan runs, but when compressor
The compressor has a safety switch under the cover where the wires connect to it. That's what is kicking out. You should check the capacitor connected to the start winding. Check the wires where they connect to the compressor. A burnt off wire for the run terminal will cause these symptoms. If that's all good, it's being fed correctly on all 3 terminals, the compressor has stalled and will probably never start again. You can try a "hard start" kit, but not on a Scroll compressor (read the label). They aren't designed to survive that.

Buy a new ignitor here; The Ignitor Store. Or talk an Amana dealer/Contractor to sell you one. They can range from 15 to 35 bucks! Depending on their mark-up. Give them your model number, and or ignitor part number. Their simple to change out, good luck, please contact if you have any questions.

SOURCE: Slow gas on Carrier 8000 58TUA?
Saw this happen one other time where the regulator at the outdoors gas meter was faulty and not supply the correct gas pressure. You may need to have the gas company come out and check the pressure at the meter. Also, check to make sure no other gas appliances are running..ie..water heater, gas logs, stove, etc. and then start up the furnace and see if it will start up properly. This would also indicate a problem at the gas meter...ie..gas pressure.

Try cleaning the flame sensor. It is located right besides the last burner. Looks like a thick piece of wire. Take steel wool and gently remove the carbon that has built up. Should only take 4 or 5 strokes. Let me know how it goes after that. ken
