Good afternoon: We are having trouble with our A/C unit. Fan is running but compressor won't fully kick on. We keep hearing it intermittently try to come on but won't fully catch and kick all the way on. But it keeps trying.

Hello, I am sorry for the delay. If the compressor tries to start but cant..means it likely needs a new capacitor. The good news is they are easy to replace and run less than $60

Thanks! Turns out the wiring harness was loose and not plugged in all the way.
