Last night there was a blackout at home, and the air conditioner (Vulcan Bonaire- Comfort Control) was running. When the power came on the AC was not longer working, and the screen on the control panel was completely blank. Maybe the system needs a master reset, but I have no idea how to do it. Please help, it is really hot!

This unit is a cooling unit only. I don't know what switch you are looking at but I don't think it's for the evap. cooler(swamp cooler). I am in the Phoenix, Arizona area and it's very common to have a evap. cooler and a seperate heat/cool system as on the hottest days the evap. cooler doesn't cool enough. I hope this helps. Please give me a positive rating. Thank you.
You should have a dedicated line that feeds the equipment power look at your main electrical panel or search around your equipment for a pull out disconnect switch or sometimes they will wire it to a light switch. by shutting down the main power and turning it back on it should reset anything.
It is more than likely the touch pad that is faulty. I have installed many bonaires, and the only thing to go wrong at that age is the touch pad, or the problem is in the control box in the airconditioner.
The touch pad comes off quite easily by placing something flat behind the pannel and leavering it off gently. The touchpad has two pieces, the front, which you see, and the mounting bracket. The bracket is almost as big as the front pannel, so you only have approx 2-3mm of plastic edge to lever, so be careful not to hook onto the mounting bracket as well.
Once you have removed the front, you can then unplug the lead coming from the touch pad (be sure to turn the control box off in the airconditioner before removing this wire, there is a switch on the side of the control box (yes, you have to get on the roof, sorry)). Take the touch pad to your local retailer that sells Bonaire units and see if that is the problem.
