Hi, the short cycling could be a result of low voltage, best thing to do is put your voltmeter into an outlet near the ac, turn it off, then back on, and see what the voltage reading does, The compressor upon startup will draw many amps, then when running settle down to between 9.5 -12 amps. this would need an amprobe to test. And tis true that a 10 year old airconditioner could indeed need to be replaced. Probably not worth repairing, please get back to me and we can discuss this further. thanks Michael
thanks for responding, When you get a chance check the voltage levels, however if it does the same thing at multiple locations, its probably the compressor locked up
