Hello, There are a few ways to tell, you csn usually find out by the compressors model # or they have a tool that is called a refrigerant " identifier" on the market.

Can the compressor run w/ a 'blown' capacitor?

The capacitor starts the motor. You would have had some other problem had the motor not started. The A/C ran until the failing capacitor no longer provided the ability to start the motor at which point your A/C died. My A/C bulged both its capacitors 2+yrs ago and it's been running ever since they were replaced, no problem. I think you're OK.

Condenser Fan and Compressor not turning on.

Are you sure you have high voltage going to the unit? One wire from fan lands on top left of contactor, the other two go to C and Fan on capacitor. Manually push in contactor, if no fan than no high voltage. If you need further help, reach me via phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/thomas_092728000e6acb79

System not cooling properly. Two speed compressor

According to the reading sound like compressor is working fine .There are other issue that contribute to no cooling and the main one is dirty filters so check your filter to see if it's dirty and clean or replaced it .
If filter is fine then you might have dirty evaporator or condenser coil so clean those out too .
Does this unit have 2 compressor and if it does is the 2 compressor running

Cools for a while ... keeps running but stops cooling.

If the refrigerant has been accurately charged and diagnosed, I would look for an air restriction. Check your filter first of all. It sounds like it may still be trying to freeze up. Make sure all the vents are at least a little open and the return grill is not blocked. In the Rocky mountain region we like to see around 44- 50 deg. at the vents. 65 would tell us that everything is not ok.

I have a new grill for the outside unit..is it difficult to replace? I am fairly handy

Yes, these are very simple to install. I'm not sure about your exact model but generally you just have to remove the top of the unit and the grill slides right up and out. It's only held in by the down pressure of the top being screwed on. Hope thus Helps : )

3 amp fuse blows when ac is switched on. Heater works fine.

There is a short in the low voltage wires somewhere for sure. The most common place is the low voltage on the outside unit, sometimes animals chew through them or they get cut with a weed eater. Just my experience. You basically have to trace it back all the way to the thermostat and heater. The only other thing is the contactor

MY AC WORKS FOR FOUR

I am not understanding exactly what is happening with your unit. You say it only runs for 4 hours a day and then say that after 4 hours the outside unit shut off. But you don't describe the condition of the outside unit! Is there ice on your outside unit after it runs for four hours or is it so hot that the housing would fry an egg? Since it works for four hours and then stops working, I would guess that ice forms on the condenser grill which tells the thermostat that your air is much colder than it actually is. Then it takes time for the ice to melt off again. Am I close? If so this condition is usually caused by your unit being low on freon making everything work harder. But it could also mean that you have a leak in the system somewhere. But it shouldn't be much of a leak or it wouldn't run for the 4 hours.
I would recommend you charge it to the correct level and then check for leaks.

My drain pan is leaking

You need to access the evaporator coil on the inside of your air handler and unplug the drain for the condensate. It should be the 3/4 inch line, if the 1/2 inch line is capped then it is not doing anything and has probably been abandoned.Open up the unit and clean the drip pan and drain hole where the 3/4 line starts. This should clear up your water leak problem.
Also
Water leak due to dust block in air filter,cooling coil,drain pan and blower wheel.

I have a Carrier central

The internal catch pan is very time consuming to replace, especially since it is located in the attic. But before you try that, have you checked to see if the drain line is clogged with algae and that it has the one inch to one foot drop you need for proper drainage? Has you house settled throwing the slope off?

If you live in the South algae growth can clog you drain line. I would disconnect the drain line (have a bucket handy) and see if it is clogged. If you have algai growth then you need to treat with bleach to kill it off. You might also want to run a drain snake through the rest of the line to make sure that it is clear.

Good luck!
