Ok sounds like your transformer is not working. Now as long as no one has removed the doors to the furnace cabinet and they are in place just like the are suppose to be, because there is a door switch that turns off the power to the whole unit until the door is in place correctly. Find the circuit board and look to see it you have a fuse on the board it will look like a car fuse the spade type they are 5 amp fuses. If it is good find the transformer and replace it. If you feel comfortable around electricity there are two sides to the transformer line voltage which is 120 and the secondary side which is 24 volts. If you have a volt ohm meter ohm out the transformer each side line side and low voltage side. An open on either side will be noticed and then replace the transformer. I know this is alot of things to check but just elimanating everything it could be before condemming the transformer. Turn the main breaker off and replace.

Sounds as though the power cord reset switch might be bad and need to be replaced. If not, then there is a short somewhere in the system. Do an ohms test on the switch to determine if it is bad.

I need to know more. when you call for cooling does the indoor fan run? Does the contactor at the outdoor unit pull in? Have you looked at the fuses,breaker. If it has been very hot lately open the outdoor unit and look for a thing that looks like a large battery it should have 3 to 5 wires on it this is the run/start cap the high outdoor temp will sometimes make this fail. You can see a failed cap 85% of the time just by looking it will have a defromed top or be leaking oil. YOU DON'T WANT THIS OIL ON YOU!

Turn the thermostat as low as it will go and have someone stand out side, they should here the condensor fan and compressor come on at the same time. They are two distinctive sounds so you should
be able to tell if the compressor is running.
If nothing happens and you are skilled with electrical
you can turn power off and remove the electrical
cover to the outside unit. Restore power and carefully
push in the contactor, if the fan and compressor
starts you have a thermostat or low voltage problem.
If just the outdoor fan runs on any attempt, more than likely you need a new capacitor.
