    Thanks again to all who responded,especially Mark B..After evaluating all responses,I was pretty sure the dual run capacitor was bad.I removed capacitor and upon inspection,noticed the case was "bulged".I am fairly confident that this is the problem.
    Thank You Again,AL

    If your breaker is tripping you probably have a short to groud.

    Actually the cap was probally shorted, not the compressor.
    Karst means cave. So, I search for caves.

    If the breaker is weak, or is the minimum to meet the MCA requirements for the unit, it is common for the breaker to trip before the internal overload on the compressor trips when the compressor is unable to start.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.
