Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll do my best to help. Let's get started and see what we can do.Do you have a volt meter for troubleshooting? Since contactor is clicking it sounds like we are getting 24 volts to the contactor and they are puling in. WE either may not be getting high voltage to the contactor ,contactor may be burned not allowing voltage through:

or we may have a bad capacitor.Take a look at capacitor first ans see if it looks swollen..We will go from here.
