Window a/c unit was working fine, then it was turned off, unplugged and breaker thrown in order to remove outlet plug. Cut and replaced new bead board. Wired plug back up and the unit will now do nothing. Even replaced the plug but still nothing. The outlet tests hot so evidently it's something with the a/c unit.

this is all i can find out at the moment.Check the electrical outlet for power and reset the house circuit breaker if the outlet is dead. Replace the outlet cord if it's worn or damaged. Unplug the sewing machine and check for loose wires. Replace the on/offswitch if it's defective.
Am suspecting your electric or power supply.
I need you to try the following steps.
1. unplug all your units or appliances
2. Reset your circuit breaker
3. try to plug your tv only and turn it On, if its turn On, then your tv is Ok
4. You mention window unit, is this aircondition window type?
Now try to plug this window unit and turn it On, if electricity went out again, then the problem is in your circuit breaker.
It could be the specs or rating of your circuit breaker does not much with the rating of your window unit.
Ur Main Fuses in the circuits breaker box must be to be restart it back.Turn off/on all the fuses on the main circuits breaker box to all the fuses in the box of the box to restart.All ur electical power outlets should work again.If not those power plug in outlets are shorted and dead must have to be replaced.
First check the outlet the unit is plugged into. It may be dead, due to a circuit breaker being tripped. Also, the interior of the outlet may be damaged or has a loose wire.
If a circuit breaker was tripped, unplug the unit before resetting the circuit breaker. Then plug the unit back in and turn it ON. If the breaker trips again, there may be a short in the AC wiring or there is another electric appliance on that same circuit, that may be causing an overload, when the AC unit is ON.
Hope this helps you to start troubleshooting the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.
No - the outside temperature will not shut the AC down.
You say the outlet has power? Does it have the needed 220 volts? Most of the time 220 volts is on one switch, (that operates both 110 volt legs of power at the same time). - but sometimes each leg is on a separate breaker and if "one leg" trips you will still have power at the outlet (110 volts) but you won't have the needed 220 volts. While this is not likely - it is possible - so I would want to test the outlet with a voltage tester and determine the voltage. You might try checking in your breaker box and seeing if another breaker (110volt) is tripped. The same thing applies if you are dealing with fuses instead of breakers - determine the voltage at the outlet - and if you don't have 220 and only have 110 then look for a blown fuse or as I said above - a breaker tripped.
If you do have 220 at the outlet and nothing is running - I would be looking for an inline fuse of some sort within in the unit. Many of the newer units have them and they are usually easy to spot and all you have to do is to unscrew the fuse holder and replace the blown fuse. Be sure to have the power off when handling fuses.
Note: Be aware that while breakers/fuses can trip and blow without a serious problem going on - they (blown fuses/tripped breakers) are usually a sign of something significantly wrong with the unit.
Check breaker box for a tripped Double Breaker, probably 30A, If breakers are OK, unplug unit from wall outlet and wait 15 min. to reset the control board, plug unit it back up and check Range. You can check for power at the outlet using a voltmeter set on the AC mode.
Keep me posted!!
I'm assuming 'nothing' comes on when you try to run the AC unit. If the fan runs but the AC does not cool then ignore the below info, but if "nothing comes on" then proceed with the below info.
If the breakers are not tripped and you've tried other outlets (on different breakers) I would suspect a faulty switch. You can replace the switch ( If it's not computerized). First unplug the unit from the wall and locate the switch (it will be the one that has the knob that controls "fan, Hi Cool, Lo Cool, etc etc.) then remove the switch - 'being careful to mark all the wires in such a manner you can replace them on the new switch, exactly like they came off the old one.'
Then if you take the switch to an appliance shop and can find/order the 'exact' same switch (or at least a comparable replacement with the same connections as the old one) you could re-install it on the unit, connect your wires back up to the switch and plug it back into the outlet and see if that was your problem.
