Front roof air does not cool!!! Any Helppppp!!!!

Hello!! My front roof air on my 2015 Allegro RED is not cooling. Fan on top of air runs fine and the fan from the blower works fine too. Notice that there is a click from the unit every 5 or so minutes but the compressor does not turn on!! Any ideas?? Can this be the capacitor?? I know that these units are sealed and not much can be done to them. Thanks for your help!!!!

Sounds like Compressor capacitor is bad

Would need Brand/Model of A/C unit to ID correct capacitor
I took my Medication today. HAVE YOU?

Agree, it's most likely the capacitor for the compressor. Very easy to diagnose with a multimeter and the replacement capacitor is not expensive. Watch a video or two to become familiar with diagnosing and replacement. Important to understand how to release the energy stored in the capacitor. Sounds "scary" but it's a simple process. On a 1-5 the job is maybe a 2, 1 being the easiest.
