Hiome AC unnit question

We have carrier unit,the compressor locked up:
do we have to get the whole condenser replaced or just compressor?

if the whole condenser need to be replaced: do we have to use Carrier condenser or we can use any other brand name?

if the compressor needs to be changed out: do we have to use the same compressor as the one on the unit ?

Thanks

If the unit is less than 12 years old and in good shape, the compressor can be replaced.

If it's old, you'll be much better off replacing the condenser unit and indoor coil.

if the whole condenser need to be replaced: do we have to use Carrier condenser or we can use any other brand name?

It's very important to use an approved indoor coil/air handler.

Don't let anyone reuse the old coil if you choose to replace the condenser.

The newer units require larger coils and use a different refrigerant.
