You have a bad capacitor. Open access panel and you will see round silver component. Size is on side. It will say something like 35 uf 5 uf 440 VAC. Replace this component and it will fix problem. Russ

If you have already replaced capacitor. Open the small plate covering the compressor terminals. Sometimes the start wire connector burns off and needs replaced.. If all wires are good and you have capacitor wired correctly. Stuck compressor. Russ
