Central A/C starts only some of the time

I have a carrier unit about 10 years old. When i set the thermostat to cool, it will only start some of the time. The other times, there is a clicking noise at the compressor, but it doesn't kick on. When it is on, the air is cold, but not as cold as it should be.

I have replaced the capacitor, problem still persists. Any suggestions?

add a hard start kit...... 5-2-1 compressor savor or something similar. Have the unit serviced and cleaned.
