Too hot for ac?

Anyone have an issue that a dometic 13.5k won't restart after a long run. It is in direct sun and over 100. Sounds like it's trying to kick over- maybe head pressure too high? Do have a hard start cap on it already.

The compressor may have locked up.

Got up on the roof and saw that the hard start cap had blown up. Still good possibility that comp is seized.

Was able to get another hard start cap before I left of this weekend trip and it worked! But...is kinda troubling that the unit would not turn on unless it had the hard start kit installed. Did trip the ac breaker once cycling.
