I'm really not allowed to call customers i could loose my job here for that, I dont believe your compressor is actually starting up I think your hearing the relay buzzing which if it sat for nine months may be corroded inside and not starting the compressor . if the compressor is running then you need freon and this is something you cant do you need to call for service or replace the unit. can you feel the compressor and see if its warm? if it is its running and you need a recharge on the freon. let me know thanks Bryan
