You walk up to a outdoor unit and as you approach its totally off , then you hear it try to start for 2 seconds and stops.
It kinda goes like this .... aaaaaaaack , click
1 minute later it goes aaaaaack, click
You put your head over top to look down inside to see anything fishy and you notice its kinda warm on your face and the thing isnt even running ... hmm ..
You pull dissconnect , take top fan assembly off and reach down to feel compressor, its friggin 500 degrees !
What do you do next before pulling out any more tools ????
A - go tell the customer they need a new compressor because this ones burnt up
B - go get your Hard Start capacitor kit
C - go take some other calls and come back later because its too friggin hot to mess with
D - gently tap the compressor housing with a mallet to free it up
E - waahoooo lets cook some eggs !!
