my AC was charged by a mechanic in may. worked one day and not the next. finally a friend was snooping around and tapped the clutch of the condensor and whoolaa the ac cycled on. this lasted for a short while then it stopped cycling. i stopped, used a small wood stick to tap the outside of clutch again and it began to cycle. QUESTION, can just the clutch be replaced or do i have to replace the entire compressor? dealer is telling me the compressor at a toon of $700. Help!

first, there is no clutch on the condenser. second, the dealer is correct and the price is very good as well. Roy

On/off switch will not shut air conditioner off. The condenser cooling fan and compressor are cycling, but I cannot shut it off. It is doing an excellent job of cooling!! Any suggestions?? Thanks,...
on this model where is the a/c clutch relay I would think the power goes through there first thus energizing the clutch. I check the fuse and It's good
