This is where the problem lies. You can't just use your hand because too many variables are involved in an air conditioner. For example, if you have a window unit, you need to know what kind of compressor it has. The same goes for heat pumps.

One of them is to check the electrical connections on the back of the unit. Another trick is to look at the condenser fan blades. They should be clean and free from debris.

If you still can't find the source of the problem, then you should contact a professional technician.
