Thje relay that controls voltage to the fan is probably failing. Have you measured the voltage at the fan to see what it is doing when the fan stops? What is the cycle rate of the fan?
I suspect the relay will need to be replaced but I would measure the voltage first to be certain the fan motor is not faulty.
Great! Let me know what you find. Once the voltage drops out, see if you can near the relay chattering. Also, if you tap on it, does it start again?
Correct, sounds like that relay is faulty. It may be a socket issue but you will see once you pull the relay out.
If the socket does not appear to be burnt, yes.
No, just that socket. You are losing the voltage at that relay.
It is a bit hard on the compressor if it gets real hot. You could place a small fan to blow on it while you are ordering parts to avoid any further issues. You can get a small fan at Walmart for $5-10.
Sounds good, thank you!
