I have a 6 year old 3.5 ton Fedders AC unit. When I started it first time this year, the air was not cooling at all. I called a technician and he measured the pressures on the high pressure and low pressure lines and showed me they were equal. This indicated to him that the compressor is dead and I need either a new compressor or a new unit.
I checked all electrical connections to the compressor and all seems OK.
Should I accept the fact that the compressor is dead?
I heard that it may not run because it shuts-off automatically if it is low on freon. Is that a valid assumption?
Thanks for any help
