Lack of Freon could definitely cause your problem. It seems everything leans towards the start capacitor. Thats easy. Replace it. Then that is eliminated. Hopefully your problem wil be solved.

Wish ours would have been the capacitor. We had our compressor go and had to replace the whole unit. Not a cheap fix, but sure glad to have the air back and running. It was our front AC and the weather has not been forgiving when you don't have air.

On 7/13/09, I stated:
"After having the same symptoms that you describe, I had to replace the start capacitor on both my front and rear roof-top A/Cs in less than 2 years from new (at different times). The technicians who did the first one, told me that Dometic told him that they had a bunch of bad start capacitors around 2006. I can look on Tuesday to get the name and part number. I now carry a spare."

Well, I finally got around to checking on the spare start capacitor that I got from Grainger. It is:

SPP5, STARTER POW-R-PAK (Solid State Relay and hard start capacitor) made by Supco.

Dale, there should be a 5 digit number w/letters that is the Dayton P/N on the capacitor. There are also values on it. If you could find them it would be a big help especially the part number.

Start capacitors are cheaper at WW Grainger. Try them
