Wordpix,

Great details, had not heard of that.

Thankfully it won't be needed just yet. Called a different place this A.M. and it turns out the owner lives in my small town of 400 people. He stopped by and gave us the best news possible - it was simply a bad capacitor. That's about the cheapest part to replace and he did so on the spot. It cost $150 compared to about $600 if it had been the fan motor and well over $1,000 (almost $2,000) if it had been the compressor. He got done about an hour ago and it's starting to cool off nicely.

But again thanks for the tip on that program as I think it won't be long before the whole system needs replacing.
