Running the equipment on 72 degrees would cause the compressor and fan to work harder on hot days. This will definitely place more strain on your capacitor. These capacitor problems usually happen on the hottest days. I would suspect the capacitor, not the fan. I'm an HVAC tech, so I would Check both with my multimeter

As these can be had for 650 bucks with searching online, putting parts on a 10 yr old unit quickly becomes a poor finacial move and even if rectified, leaxes you with an old unit. The thermal overload may be opening, some are servicable. you really need to see the reason its stopping , and whats stopping it all? or just compressor? is the power interrupted? is the compressor pulling amperage when off/ is it shorted to ground? a start assist device, a KICKSTART brand hard start kit is best shot or new ones best move, the kickstarts the strongest help you can add to it now. itr tired likely.

Hello 93 The compressor caused the breaker to trip.A weak capasitor or burnt wire is a common cause.It sounds like the compressor is NOT on even though the fan is.It may need a new wire or maybe a HARD START kit to help restore operation.Call for help.HS kits are not expensive.NO damage results from leaving it on, the problem would have happened anyway even if you went on vacation or not.The curcit breaker stopped it.Its worth fixing.

AC roof unit stops cooling after rain


No, the units are sealed and the rain should not have affected the system at all. I would remove the outer cover of the unit and access the capacitors. Your start capacitor may be bad. You can visually inspect this and tell if there is a problem. Small black relay on top of capacitor often burns out, if so, replace capacitor and relay. If this looks fine, then we need to start at the thermostat and work our way forward.

Thanks,

Jeff

Heater and AC run even though thermostat is off


It sounds like you have a short in the control unit at the ceiling pack. Remove the inner shroud from the AC and pull down the control unit. Remove the cover from the control unit to access the relays. With the thermostat off, check for power at the white (or orange depending on the unit) wire coming from the thermostat to the relay board. Also check power from the yellow and gray wires from the thermostat to the control board. None of these should be hot with the thermostat off. If there is power then you have a short in the wiring between the tstat and the upper unit. If there is no power, then you have a bad control board.

Hope this helps,

Jeff
