Is there a way to tell if your home air conditioning outside compressor is bad?

Without calling a service technician?

Most of the time when your compressor goes bad it will trip your breaker to the unit. But a tripped breaker does not always tell the tale as sometimes the condenser fan is bad and will cause that problem. Also a wire could fray and short and cause that problem. If your condenser fan is running and your compressor kicks on for a few seconds (say 60 or more) and then kicks off, you may just be low on freon. If the compressor kicks on for only 3 or 4 seconds and then kicks off, it is probably bad although the capacitor could be bad. There are so many things that could be a problem such as a bad relay etc. That it is very hard for a layman to diagnose a problem without proper test Equipment.
