Hello, this is something that will take instruments and some considerable electrical skills do diagnose... tell me a lot about your skill sets. And if none of that is in your bag of tricks, tell me which direction you are from the center of the nearest city and I will look for a well rated commercial HVAC contractor that can fix you up.

Meantime tell me the both compressors run in the morning when you are pre-cooling the restaurant.

I need to know the size of the restaurant.

I need to know how many customers are there at peak hours.

and I need to know about how old the restaurant is, and how often its air filters have been changed in the past.

Take you time, I need every bit of that information to help you, we can go from there.
