Oull the fuses out of the disconnect by the condensing unit. Then, reset the breaker. Does the breaker stay on? If so, your incoming power to the unit is OK. If it trips, you have a short somewhere. If your OK with power from the breaker to the unit, you have a direct short somewhere at your unit. At that point, it could be a wire has rubbed and is arcing to ground or compressor might have fried the windings. If your in the ladder group, you'll need to call and HVAC tech to troubleshoot your problem.

Dr Mercola Pure & Clear air purifier model# PC_AP2000. Unit stopped working, will not turn on. Cannot find a fuse in this unit. All else is in perfect working order. Thank you for your help.


The unit would be fused through the circuit breaker it gets power from in the main box of the house or in some cases a sub box to the main house circuit breaker box. If it is tripping the breaker something is seriously wrong and to reset over and over causes a fire risk, call a repair person.

Buttons, sounds, lights all go on but the dryer will not dry


Hello toofdr - Often this occurs because either a fuse from the fuse box is blown or the switches on the breaker tripped, depending on your house. If your house uses fuses, there are two house fuses that supply voltage to the dryer circuit in your fuse box. If one of the two fuses is blown, the unit may turn on but will not heat. Check and replace fuse in fuse box if necessary. However, if the house has circuit breakers, there may be two breakers with switches that supply voltage to the dryer and if one is tripped the unit as well will experience this issue. The heater of a dryer requires 220 to 240 volts to operate. Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household breaker to the off position. Wait approximately two minutes, turn on the dryer and select a normal cycle. If the issue persists, it could also potentially mean a number of other things: defective cord, wiring, control board or door switch. I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the dryer to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

How to reset garbage disposal


There should be a reset switch somewhere on your unit on or around the housing for the motor. If there is one and you find it then simply push it back in. If there is no reset switch, then you will have to see if the breaker tripped. Go to your circuit panel and look for any breaker that the switch is in between right and left/left and right depending (on and off). If you find the one that is in the middle push that switch to the center of the breaker box then back the other way. Now your breaker should be reset. If that still isn't the problem then might very well be your switch that turns on the appliance. Replace that switch (making sure that you shut the breaker OFF before you attempt (i.e. switch towards the center of the breaker box). If after all of that your disposal still isn't working, then I would consider getting a new unit because it likely beyond repair

Check to see if there is a GFI outlet in the house or garage. Reset if tripped. My wife would trip the GFI in the garage when she used the hair dryer in upstairs bathroom.

We purchased a digital thermostat to replace our old existing one. It seemed very easy to install and according to the manual and with further online instruction we had all the wires in the correct place....


are you talking about a 'split system' here - as in a house - where you have an inside unit and an outside unit?

If so - when you say you had the 'breaker' off - are you talking about the breaker to the 'outside' unit or the breaker to the 'inside' unit?

Note: on split systems you have a breaker that controls the outside unit and you have a breaker that controls the inside unit.

Typically - the outside unit has a breaker box/fuse box outside with the unit although you will also have a breaker in the main breaker box too, which is usually located in the garage or house somewhere.

The inside unit (usually located in the garage or house somewhere) will not have a breaker box/fuse box, (will merely be plugged in to the wall) but will have a breaker - also - in the main breaker box.

The importance of these questions is because it's possible you 'shorted' your transformer (located in the inside unit) when you changed the thermostat. Although if you had the inside breaker off while you were changing it (thermostat) - I don't see how you could of did this.

In any event - do you remember seeing a spark when you were changing out the thermostat?

If so, then I'm betting you shorted out the transformer.

If that's the case - I would recommend calling a Service Tech - because changing a transformer and 'clearing the short' is sometimes a complicated process - and unless you are fairly adept mechanically and electrically - I would advise getting a professional to do this.

In any event - he/she should be able to solve your problem for only a nominal service call.

good luck!

Fan runs but blowing hot air. Thunderstorm reset some breakers. I did reset the two breakers inside the house and one unit working fine, upstairs unit fan running but blowing warm air only. Box out


Sounds like your Capacitor is bad, or you had a wire burn off compressor terminal or capacitor. Way you can check capacitor is take cover off and see if looks swollen. Make sure to turn off power before taking panel off.

Maytag ac trips at plug constantly


first, get your money back or get a replacement for no charge. now, when you reset it, are you resetting the circuit breaker? if so, then first try another appliance that will demand near the same current as yours (~7-8 amps). if breaker does trip, check your house wiring. if not, then your unit's compressor motor is demanding too much current (assuming you have a 15A or 20A breaker)-not a pretty fix here. look for another unit
