re: why the hell won't my AC work? fixed, thanks

just took off the panel on the outside unit. if I press in the button on the contactor, the unit comes on, but it won't stay on if I let go

It's not getting called from the furnace. Did you try to spin the squirrel cage? Remember to have the thermo in ON position and depress any deadman switch at the door of the unit.
Good luck, I have to go lower my thermo and cook some dinner.

Is the unit a gas heater or electric heat?

Ok make sure the door is on tightly so the door switch makes contact.also do you have a digital t stat or regular if digital does it have batteries as a backup.It sounds like you're not getting 24 volts to your tstat

A/C Guy here. let me try to offer some help. You have lost power to control transformer on indoor unit. this could be the result of many things. lets start with is this a gas furnace or electric heat and or heat pump?

Open it up and look at the capacitor. 5 dollar part that is easy to switch out.
