Question about Heating & Cooling
You could have a bad condensor fan motor..... Shut the AC off at the Service disconnect and spin the blade on the fan motor and then while it is still turning turn the AC back on if the motor takes off and starts to run then you have a run capacitor out. Which is a cheap fix. Also on some model they add a fan cycle control to help the AC main tain head pressure in low ambient conditions. It will start on its on when the head pressure makes the pressure switch and then shut off if the pressure drops below its set point..... As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician or HVAC tech to advise what work is needed.
Before you do any work yourself,
on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances,
always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.
