Hello,

If the indoor turns off and on..but the outdoor runs nonstop...then you have a stuck contactor. They weld closed and the unit runs until breaker or disconnect turned off.

If the part is able to be unstuck..it will weld again. You are better off just replacing the contactor and be done with it
