I change the capacitor and cleaned all of the coils inside the interior unit and outside along with the fins and the blades with a professional solution. I had the HVAC refrigerant filled. I cleaned the water pump which circulates the outgoing water which was filthy. I also replaced the thermostat I don’t know what else it could be but the compressor.
Why would the unit still be running with a compressor that is not working? And also is there a way to check it without replacing it to see if it actually bad?
By the way the electric dryer vent is located directly above the outside unit. Why would anybody put it there is beyond my comprehension?
