Good evening all,

Here is my quandary. This A/C is very temperamental. Sometimes the compressor will kick in and work like it is supposed to, for a couple of days, and sometimes it won't. While the unit is running, if you change the modes, when you go back to 'cool', sometimes it will kick in and cycle properly, sometime it kicks in for just a minute or two, and kicks back out. Sometimes, you can get the same results with a light love tap to the side of the control panel.

I have searched and found various "fixes", but one of the most common I have heard is the control board.

Any ideas on this will be very helpful.

Also, at what point do I just throw in the towel and replace the unit? A new one runs in the ballpark of $750.00
