Hi t:

It sounds like you either have a malfunctioning compressor relay, a bad compressor or maybe a freon leak which has caused the compressor to malfunction. Replacing the relay is an easy DIY fix and not too expensive. I found an overload and relay kit for about $32 + shipping. Replacing the relay would probably be cheaper than a service call to have the box looked at.

Check this link for parts diagrams and a wiring diagram:

Let us know how you make out. Thanks.
