What is the test ('annie' ?) needed to determine if the compressor on our Carrier 3 ton needs replacing:
* Heat of day it shuts off.
* Starts back up after awhile.
* Misting water on the outside unit speeds up the cool-down
Or.. is there a thermo switch that causes this compres. to shut off. Dealer guessing it's the compressor(warrantied for part)
It work fine early evening and thru the nite
