Try changing your temp setting. Set it to a much lower temp and see if that makes a difference. Also ensure your A/C power is in the correct voltage range.

Yes we have 50 amp and yes there is two AC units but it has run both units for two years on the same 50 amp service inside the garage . So would it make a difference ? Do you think there could be the AC unit ?

has the ac been sitting for awhile? sounds like a locked rotor in the compressor. possible problems: rotor seized in compressor, bad connection between source and compressor, compressor just breaking down, start cap or ptcr.
