Hello, sounds like a common problem of the starting components. Bu there i also a possibility of just a dirty condenser. Have you checked the condenser coil of the unit if i is dirty? if there is a fan near the compressor, is the fan running? if the compressor is so hot, unplug the unit and put a damped rag on top of the compressor to cool it down until you can hold your palm on top of the compressor. if you can now hold your palm , plug it back and observe if the compressor would now run continuously. Please let me know what happened.
Hello, Thank you for those info. Then you can have a starting component problem, or worst case is, you have a bad compressor. But you can not test the compressor unless you replaced the starting components.
I you would decide to invest money on the starting components, you can try removing the plastic cover at the side of the compressor. Un plug the unit first for your safety.
ok. Let me know what the result is. I just hoped it would just be the relays or capacitor and not the compressor itself.
