Central A/C will not turn on

My central a/c will not turn on. There just seems to be no power to the entire unit. Checked fuse box in house everything okay there. Could this be a bad thermostat? What should I check before calling for service/repair?

There is usually a small fuse inside the indoor unit(furnace or air handler). That fuse generally is located on a circuit board and looks like a car fuse. It may be amber or purple in color. This fuse may have blown. If so you may have a bad circuit board. I recommend calling a NATE certified Tech for service as this one has several possibilities. Good luck.

Hello, sounds like it is either a low charge or lack of airflow, what type of filter are you using? sometimes those filters that claim to be super effecient will actually cut down on your airflow and cause the ac to freeze up.

Generally, the fuses are located in a box outside by the outdoor unit. The box has a door on it and you will probably have to pull a cartridge out and the fuses will be behind the cartridge. If you don't have an ohm meter to check the fuses , just go to home depot, lowes or another hardware store where they can check them for you. Be sure to check the circuit breakers too.

My air conditioner fan is not working


Check the outside fan and make sure it rotates freely. If it doesn't spin freely it needs to be replaced. If it does spin freely then check the capacitor. If the capactitor is OK the check the fan motor windings for continuity with an ohmmeter. Let me know what you find.

When we turn on the central air there is a strong burning smell...like burnt toast but way stronger. IS it safe to remian in the house?


Is your central air furnace or electric heat. Electric furnace sometimes have electric strip sequencer stick in the closed positions leaving on one strip of the electric heat. Get a service tech as soon as possible to check this out. Any smells from a central unit need to be teken care of promptly. TURN OFF unit you have it checked for your safety. Rus

Central air conditioner doesn't turn on... Any suggestions?


If the compressor turns off and won?t come back on during a very hot day, the unit may have built up a high "head" pressure and the high-pressure limit switch may have tripped. This is usually located right inside the access panel on the compressor unit. Simply push the button to return it to operation. If your central air conditioner doesn't go on automatically: 1) Be sure the thermostat is set to "cool" and set below room temperature. 2) A central air conditioner should be on a dedicated 240-volt circuit; check the main electrical panel and any secondary circuit panels for a tripped breaker or blown fuse. If you find the problem here, reset the breaker or replace the fuse. 3) Make sure the furnace power switch is turned on and that the outdoor condenser's power switch, mounted on the outdoor unit, hasn't been shut off. Also be sure the 240-volt disconnect next to the compressor (in a metal box, usually mounted on the house wall) hasn't been shut off. 4) Turn off the power to the air conditioner and check the thermostat. 5) Remove the thermostat's cover and unscrew the wire from the Y terminal. 6) Turn the power back on. 7) Holding the wire by its insulation, touch the bare end to the R terminal and hold it there for about 2 minutes. If the compressor kicks on, the thermostat is faulty; replace it or call an air conditioning technician. If the compressor doesn't go on when you hold the two wires together, turn the power back off and call a service technician.
