Question about Heating & Cooling
Hi, if the unit has a remote control,check the batteries and replace if required. Unplug unit from wall socket and check the filter in the unit where the cold air comes out, the cover lifts upwards. Clean filter by using a vacuum cleaner and reinsert. Plug and switch on power at source. Hope this helps.

You air handler and condensor run off of two seperate circuit breakers. They share the same control voltage source. With the air handler responding to the thermostat setting, we know you have control voltage. You either have a problem with the line voltage at your condensor or something is happening in the control. Check your circuit breakers and/or fuses to your outdoor unit. Also, look for a red button near the area where the refrigeration pipes enter your condensing unit. Push the red button. If it starts to run, your unit went out on High Head Pressure. A dirty air filter this time of year can cause head pressure problems in the heat cycle (assuming this is a heat pump). Also check for cleanliness of the condensor coil and ensure proper operation of the outdoor fan motor.
There are a couple of components inside the condensor that could prevent it from running. One is the contactor. If the contacts are pitted or if a bug crawled in between them, it will prevent the unit from running. Another component is the Dual Run Capacitor. If this fails, it could prevent operation of your outdoor fan and compressor. Don't forget to check all your wires and connections. Always shut off all power prior to reaching into the electrical compartment.
I hope you find this to be very helpful moving forward. :-)

There should be an electrical box next to your exterior unit. Open it up and there should be a pull handle on an electrical bridge. Usually when it is turned one way it will make an electrical connection and if it is rotated 180 degrees and plugged in it won't make an electrical connection.

Testimonial: "Thanks so much! I found the box and turned the pull handle and now our central air is working!Thanks again!"
