Question about Heating & Cooling
Check electrical breakers turn them off then back on. To reset them.
How long has it not worked?
Does the fan come on if you put the fan in the ON position on the t-stat.?
Is this a heat pump? If so does any lights show up on the t-stat if you put the t-stat in emergency heat?
Give me more information.
Help me out so I can help you.

This sounds like your condenser contactor, contacts are stuck. They weld together if an ant or other debree get between the contacts. Turn off the electric breaker to the outdoor unit as if the outdoor unit runs without the indoor unit running you may damage your outdoor unit compressor.
I would suggest you call a service company. The part should run retail @ 30 to 40 dollars then the service call charge. This repair should take less than 1/2 hour.

The blower motor kicks on when there has been a 24 volt control failure.
This usually means that a limit switch has tripped.
Most likely that would be a high temp limit switch or a rollout switch.
First, make sure the filters are clean. and the evap coil is clean. If eaither are dirty/clogged, it will partially block airflow, causing the furnace to overheat, causing the high temp limit to trip.
A rollout switch typically trips for three reasons.
1 flame rollout into the burner compartment due to poor airflow.
2 overheating af teh metal plate the rollout is mounted to, due to dirty, old, rusted components.
3 a bad limit switch.
If your unit has an LED light, count the flashes and it will hepl popint out the problem.
(locate the wiring diagram/flash code list, and correspond the flash count, with the code.)
First, check filters.

This is a condenser fan and as long as the A/c unit is in cool mode, this fan will run. The only time it should shut off is when temperature setting is satified and the unit shuts off.
