Either you have blown the low voltage fuse located inside the air handler (if there is one) or you have blown the transformer feeding the low voltage control wiring.

If the transformer is blown due to no fuse installed, I would recommend installing a low voltage 3A fuse in line with the red terminal coming off the transformer. This will protect the transformer in the future.

Outside unit won't come on. Drain pas appears dry/.


if nothing comes on (on the outside unit) when you turn on AC (and the inside unit runs ok) I would check the fuses and/or the breaker for the outside unit. I would suspect a fuse blown or a breaker tripped. It's also possible that your 'low voltage' (24V) thermostat wire has been cut (by lawn mower) or chewed into (by dog). If the problem is the low voltage wire you can easily splice it back together - just be sure all power is off.

shorting the wires usually just blows the fuse on the control board in the inside unit. BUT there is a chance the contactor coil was shorted out as well. Will the inside fan come on if placed in the ON position but the system switch in OFF ? If not check the transformer in the cabinet of inside unit.

Those are the low voltage wires from the thermostat and transformer. Yes he can just match up the colors and splice with wire nuts or something else to hold the tight. If the transformer got shorted out during any of this it may need to be replaced. Hook them up and if the unit runs, then no problem with the transformer.

Can't get my programable thermostat


when the dog chewed on the wires were there any bare spots where the wires could touch one another, if so the transformer is is probably bad or if there's a fuse in the 24 volt line then it is bad.

That wire is to your thermostat which of course turns the A/C on/off. One thing you can do is to splice the wire back together w/ small wire nuts (available at hardware store or wal-mart, and just hook it up color to color and then tape w/ electrical tape. Make sure you turn your breaker off and turn off the thermostat control.
