Compressor just stopped


Everything was fine. Then the compressor just stopped. The outside fan functions. Compressor won't kick in. The system is only 5 or 6 years old.

check capicator. Check the wiring (terminals) where they connect to the compressor.. sometimes they will burn off.. Does the compressor have a low pressure switch ??

If you can post a schematic we can step you through troubleshooting.
There must be several switches, interlocks, etc. that can prevent the compressor from starting.
