Welcome to JustAnswer. Before considering any parts problems, inspect the condenser coil radiator for a layer of debris blocking the air flow through it. Vacuum any debris you find, and check to make sure the condenser fan runs, when the compressor runs.

If this does not solve the problem, or if the area is clean, please get back to me, and we'll pursue other options.

Thank you for choosing JustAnswer.
