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


reset the breaker for outside unit and the inside unit, thermostat is still reading the temp, but the thermostat is literally the only thing working. outside unit won't even hint at starting, inside fan doesn't come on, and even the heat won't come on.

drip tray is empty, I've quadruple checked the breakers, etc. any ideas that won't rape my wallet?


edit: replaced the 3 amp fuse on the furnace board and it's fixed.

I always called the landlord's office and they were always helpful with saving money.

More like gently fricked my wallet, not full out rape.

Wish I could help, man. I would hate anyone to be without A/C this time of the year.

Sounds like either the capacitor or the connections to the capacitor have burned out. Parts really aren't too expensive. Maybe $50 at most. Labor is going to get you for between $250-$500 though.

I can usually fix most things myself, but my problem is not knowing wtf is wrong.

Sounds exactly like what happened to mine. Make sure your filters are clean,It can easily freeze up if not. Mine is an outside combo unit.I thought it had an inside fan but it doesn't. The inside unit is only a furnace. Go get the serial number off of it, Take that to the parts store along with the model name and number. Someone there should either be able to tell you how to fix it or give you a manual to use.

The fan won't come on even in the "on" not "auto" position? Did you check for a possible breaker in the attic, some people use them as a means of disconnect.

I lost power when the disconnect wasn't making good contact

won't come on at the auto or on positions. I spent 30 minutes sweating my arse off in the attic to look for any other breaker or switch or anything. nothing.

Check the intake on your coils for dust buildup. Happened to me the other day

ETa: on your outside unit.

I would have called the AC guy.

I'd already be burning up and sweating balls.
