    Need some info

    Pressures and temps at 100* if possible.  Condition of contactor and electrical in general.  Amp draw on compressor and cond. fan.  All you are saying is it's broke at 100*, please fill in the blanks.

    Need more info.....

    As Empire said, need more info. Could be so many things. Amp draws and superheat/subcooling. Also capacitor weak? Outdoor fan motor going out on internal overload? Does the unit have a high pressure switch? Electrical connections tight? Proper wire size? May need hard start kit.
