Our central air won't cool it kicks on and the fan kicks on but it's not cooling. We replaced the capacitor about two months ago and now it is doing the same thing again. Any ideas?

We had the freon check and it is at a good level and no leaks. My husband went out and did the manual start on the fan it made a weird noise and then it worked like it was suppose to. Can stuff get caught in the fan and make it not work properly?

Ok so it seems there is no any problem with capacitor or freon.
Well it could be that the compressor is becoming weak. When this happens, high pressure will leak into the low pressure side of the air conditioner, causing the temperatures to rise. This will require a new compressor or new condensing unit.

The start winding in the condenser fan is bad, the head pressure goes up and the high pressure switch is taking the unit out.This is my guess.If you can start the fan by turning it manually that is probably the answer.Of course there are other things that could have the same symptoms but I would check that first.
