If the unit is located on the roof then they would be in the disconnect box up there. If it is on the ground then the same. If no disconnect box if found then check you breaker box for a tripped breaker.

Check for some type of float switch in the condensate pan. It will shut down the unit to prevent more condensate but I am not sure if it would still allow the indoor fan to run.

House has power but AC and thermostat seem to be off. Thermostat doesn't even show a temperature reading.

I would check the inside unit on the main board and make sure the fuse is not blown. Hope this helps Tim

Its a ruud air conditioning unit manafacture year is 1990. It won't come on at all.

if you dont know what you are doing it is best to call a professional. you could damage the equipment or get yourself electrocuted.ask your neighbors who they use.It could be a simple problem or major,hard to say without looking at the unit.Most common problems are simple repairs such as blown fuses,bad contactors/capacitors and are not that costly.

I have a 23 year old Goodman 4 ton HVAC system that has done well but is needing more repairs more frequently. I am looking to replace the unit but anything I install will be placed on credit which is not...

A 23 year old unit will be a major energy hog.You will see a massive improvement even with a less efficient unit,but go with the energy efficiency.The price of fuel is going to keep going up,and you will be using the furnace for many years.I'm in Ohio,and we get by just fine on electric for the very rare occasion the temperature drops below the level where the heat pump cant keep up.If this really worries you,you can put a couple space heaters back for emergency.Of course your talking about a gas unit,or a dual fuel unit.The dual fuel would be your best bet of course for ultimate fuel efficiency,but they can be pricey for the ones with all the bells,and whistles.Some will even use the fuel that is less expensive at any given time throughout the day.For example in some circumstances electricity is more expensive during the day then at night.Ultimately you have to figure out how much energy you use on average to heat your house.If you know the efficiency of the unit you have now you can estimate the actual output energy that is actually needed to heat/cool your house.Which would be the effective output of the old unit.Figure out how much less energy input you will need with a more efficient unit to get the same average output as the old unit.Subtract the energy usage for the new unit from the average energy use from the last winter.This will be your approximate energy savings.This should give you some Idea of the energy savings.
