Could be just a blown fuse or circuit breaker. Fuses are generally located close to the unit in a small box on the side of the house. You will have to flip the box open to find the fuses. It may have a cartridge you have to pull out. Fuses are not visibly bad, you have to check them with an ohm meter or sometimes a hardware store can check them for you. Otherwise you will have to buy two and just replace them both.
The circuit breakers are usually in the house along with all the other breakers in a main panel. There will be two breakers and will probably be visibly tripped. Just flip them all the way back and forward to reset

Outside hvac unit

Check the breakers at the main panel flip them all the way off and back on. If this doesn't help check the outside breakers or diconnects near the units for power. Some disconnects have fuses or breakers so you may need to check these for power also.

Air conditioner keeps flipping the breaker

Could be a lot of things. About the only thing you can do besides calling a service tech is to 'make sure your coil on the condenser (outside) is clean. This coil can be cleaned with a water hose, but you need to make sure you have all electricity turned off.

Turn off the breaker on the outside unit (this could be a fuse block that you have to pull out) and make sure you have your inside thermostat in the off position.

Once you are 'absolutely sure' that you have all electricity off - you can wash the coil with a high pressure hose. Just make sure that both - the inside and outside of the coil is clean; you may have to disassemble the unit a little bit, i.e. take the top off or one of the sides, etc.

The only hope you have - is that the coil is clogged and causing the compressor to overheat and go off on amp overload. It's possible this is the case - but I also suspect the compressor is electrically breaking down which is not connected to the condenser coil being dirty, in which case you will need a service tech and may be faced with some expensive repair. Let's hope this is not the case.

So - it's worth a shot to wash the outside coil.

Not to be 100% negative - it's possible it's something minor and when a service tech looks at it - it could be a fairly cheap repair bill.

Good Luck!

Outside unit tripped the breaker. flip the breaker

Check the fan relay or contacts first. If the compressor comes on then your fan may be locked and will need replacing.

A/c unit outside will not come on.

More than likely, your AC unit is on it's own breaker inside or outside the house. If it is, it is very possible that the breaker is either flipped or blown. This is a problem I would HIGHLY recommend that you contact a professional for due to the nature. If you flip the breaker back on, you could cause a surge to the unit, thus "frying" it, or it could cause a fire inside/outside the home.

No cooling after power out, indicator lights pattern not in manual

The Mitsubishi units have to be reset by turning off the indoor units by switching the remote or thermostat to off. Then turn off the breaker to the outside unit(s). After 30 seconds,turn on the breaker and then you can turn on the remote for cool. If no lights come on on the inside units, most likely you have blown a fuse soldered on the main PC board. At this point, call your technician. A goos tech will be able to wire in an in-line fuse holder so if it should happen again, you can easily replace the fuse. If you do see a light or two come on at the indoor unit but the outdoor unit does not start after 3 or 4 minutes, sounds like you will need to call a technician. Most likely you have a blown fuse on the main PC board of the outside unit. It is not an easy one to replace. Good Luck!
