Hi all!

Kenmore window AC unit model # 253.71123010. We've had it just over a year and was working fine until last night. We turned the unit off and the motor/compressor was still running. No air, just a lot of noise. We Unplugged it, reset it, etc, and it would be fine for about 30 seconds and then the compressor would start up again, even when the unit is off.
It ended up tripping the circuit breaker its working so hard.
We checked the filter and made sure it was clean and also hosed down the coils to make sure those were clean. This morning it is still doing it. I've read that it could be a relay problem on the main circuit board but am having a hard time finding the exact part. Any help or advice would be much appreciated!

Thanks so much!

Kim
