Please check to see that the raw water pump supplying water to the AC unit is running and flowing water. If not find the breaker and reset it or find the blockage and clear it.

Do you have more than one unit? If yes and after following smitty’s advice try swapping the electronic controller with another unit.

From his limited description I am getting the feeling that he has rotary controls with the 'bulb' thermostat - not too sure yet though.

We have similar units, maybe, although with different controls. Had a problem with one kicking right off again after starting. Took the wires off the compressor and cleaned up the connections, put it back together, works fine again. May be worth a shot...

The capacitor could be faulty. Our unit has a dual run capacitor, part for the fan and the part for the compressor. They’re less than $20. If everything else checks out, I look at that. There should be a lot of info in the archives here or on the internet.
