    Many thanks for your reply. I think that our problem is a result of the drip pan, as we had over the last few weeks several times that the unit was defrosting. I am not able to get to the drip pan as this is most likely in the ceiling, but i Will work on it. Best regards Bert Gyzen

OK.keep updated with the results.A drip pan is installed under the condenser unit to catch excessive drips or leaks. If you find water in the drip pan, clean or replace the condensation line. Thanks for the update.

Air Conditioner Won't Start may be due to : -
1.electrical problems

Please follow these:

it may sound silly, but is the air conditioner turned on?
Has the cooling thermostat been set to "cool" and the temperature set below ambient room temperature?
Do both the outdoor compressor/condenser unit and the indoor blower fan/evaporator coil unit have electrical power?
Are the power switches on at these units, are the fuses good, are the circuit breakers in the "on" position, and is the thermostat set correctly? See A/C - HEAT PUMP CONTROLS & SWITCHES and THERMOSTATS for some diagnostic tips.

2. Air Conditioner Won't Start or Stays Off Due to Condensate Pan Switch.

Condensate pan switch lockout: an attic or other air conditioner air handler condensate drip tray or drip pan located under an air handler is installed to catch air handler condensate leaks if the normal condensate drain system fails. Some condensate pans have their own separate overflow drain (a proper installation) or share their drain with the normal condensate drain (an improper installation).
But on some air conditioning air handlers the installer may provide a condensate overflow pan switch rather than a separate pan drain line. In this installation the switch is designed to turn off the air conditioning system if it finds condensate water in the overflow pan. The idea is to shut down the air conditioner before there is a more costly leak into the building insulation or ceiling.
So if your air conditioning system seems to be normal in all other respects but it simply won't turn on, check for a flooded condensate pan or a defective condensate switch. See DRIP TRAY DEFECTS and also Use of float switches on air conditioning condensate overflow pans.

its the blower motor resistor that is faulty or the blower motor resistor wire connector that has a bad connection.Wiggle the wire connector going to the resistor with the ignition switch and the fan switch in the on position and if the fan comes on then the connection is bad but, if it does'nt come on then the resistor is faulty.
