Hello,My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you. I am looking over your question now and will respond shortly.
Well this depends on the compressor that pumps the freon or the freon itself.
The compressor capacitor could be bad - $125
The compressor itself - $900+
Or the unit is low or out of freon - $250-$750
The first thing is to determine if the compressor is running or not.
Is this something you plan on checking yourself?
First..if you hold the 2 freon pipes that connect the outdoor to the indoor unit...are they the same temp? One warm and one cool? If you you can tell the compressor is running? Is the compressor hot?
do you know what the capacitor is?
Please note - inside of the ac unit is 220v
Ok that is good info.
If the capacitor was changed..then something caused the overload. Which is likely a bad compressor or bad wire connection at the capacitor or compressor.
Have you checked the terminals where they attach they make sure they are all still intact?
If you want to remove cover of ac and take pics and post here I can look for you and identify possible signs of failure
Then the issue is most likely the compressor.
It wore out the old capacitor, and new worked for a bit.
But it sounds like you are at a compressor failure
That is the most common after a service is a pulled wire or bad connection.
Does it start now?
great..just turn power off and give a try.
