Condenser fan works but not compressor

I have an older Lennox A/C unit and the fan outside is coming on but not cooling the house. After the fan kicks on both inside and out, the lights flicker when the Compressor? tries to kick on but nothing happens.

Welcome to the forums.

I moved you to your own thread. Hitchhiking on another thread gets confusing.

It sounds like you may have a defective start capacitor on your compressor. There are many threads running right now that you can read up on.

Is this something you are going to repair yourself ?
