a/c compressor runs then shuts off
i have an outside fedders a/c unit that after i cleaned the condenser with the garden hose, the fan comes on for about 2-3 mins, then it shuts off. I hear the compressor still humming when the fan stops. I hope that i did not create any problems . the house was built in 1956 and the unit looks pretty old. so I don't know how old it is. I got to say that I feel stupid about this whole thing 'cause the unit was still hot when I hosed it off with the garden hose. the cage was still in place, not like i have it now on the pictures.I just want to have an idea of how this is going to set be back in $$$$$ s .
any ideas that you can give me will certainly be appreciated.
