Question about Heating & Cooling
First thing check your ciruit breakers or fuses and make sure you have power to the outside unit. Remove the small cover on the outside unit that covers the contactor, capacitor, circuit board, etc. Then set the thermostat to call for a/c. Check and see if the contactor is pulled in supplying power to the fan and compressor. If it isn't check for 24vac that powers the coil in the contactor. If the contactor is pulled in supplying power then your capacitor could be the problem. You can check it with a multimeter with the capacitor check function. If it looks swollen then it is probably bad. Let me know what you find and I can give you some more stuff to check if that isn't it.
