My A/C unit cools the dogs room, but lately with the rainstorms & there is a power failure & the system shuts off. If I am not home to press the start buttom again the system stays off . Is there an automatic reset that will allow the system to turn back on by itself? Please help. Thank you for your time.

The snow flake indicates that the mode is set for cooling, not hearing our both heating and cooling.
There should be two temperatures given by the thermostat, one is the actual room temperature and the other is the temperature setting. The room temperature reading only changes with room temperature change. The thermostat setting temperature changes when the up or down button is pressed.
If your room temperature, say it it's 80° and the temperature is set lower than 80° with a snowflake, the fan should run and start blowing cool/cold air. If you system does not do this, then there is a problem. The problem can be the fan housing cover is not making contact due to the cover not installed properly, nothing will run in this case, no fan. It can be there is no power delivered to the indoor fan, or to the outdoor fan, both these fans must run during thermostat calling for cooling.
The thermostat is not something to be reset as you asked but rather, you check that both fans run and that the outdoor fan makes compressor noise.
Come back with your findings or call a service person. One last try is to shut power to both indoor and outdoor parts of the system and then restore power in attempts to reset the unit or power circuit breakers
the blower unit or air handler is actually blowing air through the ductwork.
Here are the details of what to check in what order if your air condtioner or heat pump doesn't start at all when you set the room thermostat to call for cooling:
Check the Room Thermostat Temperature Setting: Set the thermostat to at least 5 degrees below room temperature. Our elderly mom has no patience with switches and controls. She regularly calls her air conditioning service company with a service request, sometimes late at night, because she has simply failed to set the temperature on the thermostat lower than the room temperature. Don't drive your A/C like our mother.
Check that the Room Thermostat is set to "Cool"not "Off" or "Heat". If the thermostat is not set to "cool" it is simply turning off your A/C. If the thermostat display is blank then it's not receiving power (for modern digital thermostats). Check that electrical power is on at the air handler and to the the low-voltage transformer that supplies power to the thermostat.
If the thermostat has power, check that when you set the thermostat temperature down at least 5 degrees below room temperature the thermostat calls for cooling. If it doesn't then check for broken or shorted thermostat wires anywhere between the wall thermostat and the control board at the air handler.
You can easily eliminate possible thermostat problems as a cause of failure of the air conditioner to start by simply eliminating the thermostat from the picture: disconnect the thermostat wires at the blower unit's control board and instead connect the two thermostat terminals directly together with a jumper wire. If the system starts then the problem is in the thermostat itself or in its wiring.
If the thermostat is working but the compressor condenser unit won't start, you could skip ahead
to COMPRESSOR / CONDENSER DIAGNOSTICSbut I wish you'd double check the remaining steps in this article first because there are some sneaky snafus listed below that might still be the problem.
Check that electricity is on for the equipment. Check all of the electrical switches and controls that can turn electrical power off at the indoor air handler or at the outdoor compressor/condenser unit. There are more of these switches than you might guess. Here's a list of what to check:
Electrical power switches and service switches outside by the compressor, inside at the air handler, and fuses or circuit breakers in the electrical panel. Don't forget to check that the access covers to the equipment are properly closed and latched. Otherwise a BLOWER DOOR SAFETY SWITCH could be keeping the equipment from running.
There are several other safety switches and controls, both manual and automatic that can leave an air conditioner or heat pump turned "off" such as a blower compartment door interlock safety switch, an electric motor overload or overheat switches, and a condensate tray spillage detector switch.
Check the electrical supply voltage. Even if electricity is on, if the supply voltage has fallen too far below the operating voltage range of your air conditioner it's likely that the system will not operate, particlarly, you may note that the compressor motor won't start.

the sensing ( sensor ) within the unit is mostly clogged up with fluff as the fun intakes the cold air ( of the room ) and pushers the cooler air back into the room . the system have filters behind the flutes ( made of fibres you can blow them with air blower then can be re used ) it within this area where the sensor is located
Sounds like a bad thermal overload which opens when the compresssor gets too hot. After the compressor cools down it closes and does not re-open unyil the compressor gets hot again. Check your wiring diagram if you have one and look for a symbol like two question marks on top of one another or the letters O/L. That seems to be what is occurring here.
The Scanner System Failure error occurs if the scanner bulb is not being
heated up to the correct temperature or there is some other issue with the
scanner hardware. Verify that the scanner bulb is lit. Power cycle the
all-in-one product and see if the error comes back. Perform the steps given
below to power cycle your all-in-one product.
1. Shut the computer system
off, then disconnect the all-in-one product from the power source. Leave the
all-in-one product disconnected from the power source for at least one full
minute. 2. Reconnect the power, then restart the computer system.
it does, take it off of any power strip and plug it directly into a wall
power outlet. The power strip may not be supplying enough power to the
product. Cold ambient room temperatures may also cause this error. Try
moving the unit to a warmer room and see if the error reoccurs. The unit
will need to be serviced if the bulb does not come on.
semi-full reset by following the steps given below:
Caution: A semi-full
reset will reset or clear the following information:
* Return the
user settings to the factory defaults * Delete language and country settings
on some models * Fax logs * Fax headers * Fax speed dial
from your description it sounds like this only happened once .. if it happens over and over then there is a different solution ... if the system is shut off then back on right away it will sometimes trip the breaker . this happens often when you have a momentary power failure ... any time the unit is shut off you should wait for a minute before turning it back on .. that allows the internal pressure to drop so the compresser is not trying to start with a full load ..
