Hi I amCustomer a independent technician, I will assist you with your issue.

Don't forget to rate the 5 star rating AT THE TOP OF PAGE if we are done. this will credit me for assisting you.

Make sure it is not low on refrigerant first.

Then just bypass low pressure switch and disconnect coil sensor as it is usually normaly open and may be stuck close.

Or you can run Y wire directly to contactor 24v terminal to bypass all components
