Hi you have a compressor that is drawing locked rotor amps. It is trying to start for a second, drawing lots of amps, causing the fan to slow down because of this. It is shutting of on its overload protector. Thats why you have no cooling. It may be a run capacitor, but I really doubt that's the problem. You have lost the compressor due to a lock up, burn out, and it would be cheaper to replace this unit.I hate to give you this type of information, but this is the problem, just being honest. Please keep me posted. If you want a second opinion, take it in to a appliance repair shop, and they will tell you the same when its turned on. I wish you the best, Shastalaker7 A/C, & Heating Contractor
I hate to say this but it sounds to me like you need a professional. You may hear some other advice but it's not safe for anyone to work on the outside compressor unless they really know what they're messing with. The fire and death by electrocution risk is very real.
It sounds to me like your fan cycling switch is sticking while the unit is cycling off (fans). When this happens your condenser does not have the ability to remove the heat from the refrigerant which in turn causes the compressor to load heavy. This creates a very high pressure condition on the high side. When this happens go outside and see if the condenser fans are running.
you probably have a defective contactor or start capacitor on condensing unit. if you pretty handy with wiring go to the condensing section open the panel. you should see a contactor (it's the little black piece with all the wires) check the condition of it. next to it is a capacitor and by the problem that you describe it could be that. check it if it looks bloated there's your problem just go an get an combination capacitor and wire up. (make sure the power to unit is off first. any other questions email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
