My ac is only 4 years old when shut it off the compressor still continue's, I have no control of temp seems the highest cool and only after I unplug does it stop?

Not sure what system(window, ductless, residential conventional split system, package unit??? If it a standard residential system on the outdoor unit there is a 2 pole contactor. Its the component that the line voltage wires, coming from your home, connect to the unit. That contactor closes its "switch" upon demand and is probably stuck closed. If its a window unit its a window unit (you stated "unplug it") its a micro relay on the circuit board and it needs replaced. Work safe!!

All lights on but fan or nothing works also can't find reset button

Do you have an owner's manual that came with it? If so you should contact the manufacturer and find out what services are available. It is not something the amateur can fix since it is high voltage and solid state on a circuit board or two. Maybe there are error codes you can write down like the "19" may be,

Ac is tilted out but water still drains in

Look on the bottom back of the unit for the drain hole is probably clogged, use a piece of wire to unplug it.

Cannot turn the unit off with the on/off switch. all other functions work fine

I would replace the switch - which is something you can do I imagine.

1) just make sure all electricity is off

2) you might need to disassemble the unit just a little, but the object is to 'get to' the switch itself and then remove the wires that is plugged/attached to the switch. NOTE:: it's possible that you might have some 'burnt/shorted' wires in which case all you might need to do - is to fix the 'burnt/shorted' wires and try the AC again.

3) be sure you label each wire you take from the switch, i.e. use numbers or color code or some way for you to be able to put these wires back on a new switch.

4) once you've labeled the wires - then remove the switch and take to an appliance/parts store and buy an 'exact' replacement switch -one that has the same connections as the old one.

5) re-install it on your AC and this should fix your problem.

good luck!

Is not coolyn

The 'cable' you referred to I'm assuming is the power cord,and the fact that it was 'burned bad,' indicates you had something wrong with the AC itself.

This could be something as simple as a shorted/burned wire inside the unit - to a shorted compressor or fan motor.

If you're mechanically inclined you might open up the unit and see if you can find more burnt wires.

It does worry me a little when I see a power cord "burnt," so it might be smart to have a Service Tech check out the AC completely. If it's just a shorted wire, capacitor, relay or switch, the repair bill won't be that bad.

Good Luck!

Background hum

I fixed the same issue by replacing the original AC power supply with a 13.8 volt DC power supply (Radio Shack) It seems to be more consistent at high SPL and no hum , as the Boston acoustic unit accepts either AC or DC power.
