Question about Heating & Cooling
Circuit breaker chkd, it is on position, indoor register working. there is a grey box near outside unit with a black on/off handle but cant move it. how can i troubleshoot to get outside on. thermostat on inside as well
Remove the service cover on unit.check and see it the contactor is pulled in if it is then check the disconnect that is the gray box that you see on the wall to see if you are getting 220 volts to it and through it to the unit. if indoor unit is running and outdoor contactor is not pulled in check the 24 volt side of contactor. You will need a metter for this if you are not confident with working with electricity call a service company. electricity KILLS

Clicking sound is the contactor engaging to start the outside unit. Check for a burnt off wire at the contactor. For some reason you are not getting power to the outside unit. If you find a burnt off wire shut off all power to it then remake the connection at the point of the circuit break.

was there any refrigerant loss? "bumping" that results in movng usualy causes a leak.If the system is totally empty, It shouldn't start.. If it did major oh nos! will appear. Does it not start all? and was it running when it got thumped? May have to call a tech out on it. Sorry.

The two wires coming from the breaker box go to the terminals marked "LINE". The two wires going to your AC unit go to the terminals marked "LOAD".
Hope you find this to be very helpful. :-)

You will have to find the contactor which is located in the outside unit. And check the voltage at the contactor, 26 v as this is the thermostat calling for the compressor to come on. You can also push in the contactor and see if the fan and compressor start. There should be an outside fuse box close to your condensing unit. Good luck
