split unit ac chipping out

I have a crystal air 18,000btu split a/c unit whenever i turn it on the outside compressor comes on for 1 minute or so then goes out after repeatedly turning it on & off the compressor turns on & stay on for sometime 8 or more hours i have recently had the capacitor changed. whenever the compressor comes on it cools pretty fine. Please i am asking for some advice it will be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance
