The comressor may be going off on internal overload if it's failing after running an hour. Does the breaker ever trip?You can retrofit a new replacement comressor even if G.E says it's not avail. you should be able to cross refrence the numbers off the compressor with a local HVAC supplier.You have to slide the unit out to get the numbers off of the compressor thru the wall units are similar to window units as far limited space to work on them but not as difficult.I would call another contractor it sounds like this guy isn't interested in fixing just replacing.If I had to replace the unit I would install a Carrier heat pump.It's hard to troubleshoot the unit over the internet but I can tell you what's true and what isn't.As far as testing the compressor goes it doesn't sound like it's grounded or burned out or the windings are open if it runs for an hour does it heat or cool in that hour ?
