Check your air filter. if its ok call the guy who installed it and have him fix the leak. It prob is a bad weld joint. Check the joints on the copper tubing inside at the coil and outside at the a/c and feel around and see if there is oil leaking from the joint. If not you may have a leak in a coil or on the txv inside on the coil.

When you remove the panel to the unit it turns off the power to it. The reinstalling the panel will reconnect power and allow the unit to reset. So the cheapest and easiest thing you can try is to replace the thermostat. Make sure you see how many wires you have connected to your existing tstat and buy near the same thing. It's possible that the tstat is acting up, not allowing the unit to cool when the temp demands. And turning off power is resetting the tstat as well as the unit. It will be hard to troubleshoot with the info provided so a new tstat will be worth a shot. Hope this helps!
Sounds like there is a problem with your unit. The cooling tower doesn't have anything to do with the compressor other that the delivery of water to your heat pump. The compressor is probably shutting off on a low pressure because the water is cooler than in summer. I think the heat pump you have is low on charge or has a defunct TXV.
AC will not work with temps are cold even when it is turned on. The air is colder cause the temp is colder. The AC cycles in hot weather because the AC charge is low and needs recharging. You will know this if you open the hood run the AC and you will hear the clicking sound of the AC compressor magnetic clutch. You can recharge it easily buy buying a compatible can of refrigerant. I suggest buying the kit with the gage so you don't overcharge the system which will cause freeze ups
Possible causes are dirty filters, dirty condenser coil, dirty evaporator coil, or low referigerant charge. Any one of the conditions will affect heat transfer.
Check the filters in your indoor unit, If they seem to be clean and replaced on a regular basis, your evaporator coil is probably in good shape. Unfortunatley on some Weather King models even checking the evaporator coil is not possible due to the extensive amount of referigerent lines that block access to the coil without some major work including evacuating the refrigerant.
The most likely cause is a dirty outdoor condenser coil. On weather king models you will have to remove the casing that surrounds the coil because is is built in such a way that the condenser coil cannot be properly cleaned with the casing in place. Once it is removed make sure breaker is switched off and clean the coil with a water hose.
If your outdoor coil is not dirty then it is a refrigerent problem.
The inside part is the bit that gets cold, which is where the condensation forms (if using it to cool). there should be a drain. Unfortunately Weather King do not appear to support their products online except to dealers.
If you can open the unit up enough to where you can see the space below the coils on the inside part (usually just behind where the air comes out, but not always), you should be able to see the drain - if you can then follow where it goes, then let us know what you have if you can't figure out how to unblock it.
If you can post back a couple of photos of the unit and installation I might have a better idea of what to tell you to check.
Unplug anything from the power before you start opening things up.
If you need help finding your local dealer, please ask and I will look.
Hope this helps :)
