service guy came out ( i was not there and said the compressor was dead). we had the thermostat set on 72 and he lowered it to 55 with the same response.
the fan would run the compressor would kick on for a short period and then shut off.
How would i tell high pressure or low pressure in this scenario. You guys are great! thanks!
Been there - done that - got the post card and now a new A/C.
So that is exactly how my A/C perils began back in May. What you can do temporarily is to test the OH Switch - it sits on top of the compressor. Looks like a jumper with a little round thing(y) in the middle - wish I had a picture of mine to show you - you can remove it it temporarily - the part costs about 10 bucks. May sure you unplug from shore before doing it.
If it works - you will get some extra life - I replace my OH switch after running a couple of days with out it. The following month the Compressor finally gave up.
Cost me a 75 dollar service call to ultimately replace the unit - they warned me this can be a sign the the compressor will probably go next and it finally did shortly there after.
