Your snowflake should flash for about five minutes, that is the time delay built into the thermostat. It should stop after that and your system should begin to function.

The snow flake indicator is a feature of the unit. I doubt it is not functioning. Just let it blink for a few minutes then you should be able to use the unit. If you need any more advice checkout AC Repair Fort Lauderdale

I have a digital Honeywell thermostat that has a blinking snowflake. When the thermostat is on auto mode it does not turn on. When I turn the thermostat to fan I can feel and hear the air blowing out of...


If the thermostat has a blinking snowflake then it is in time delay mode which sometime can take between 5 to 7 minutes before it will turn the AC and Fan On......Then it will go to a solid snowflake.
When you turned it to fan On it starts the Fan right away..... After the snow flake has went to solid check to see if the fan is running and then look outside to see if the Fan Blade is turning on the AC..... The fan blade comes on the same time as the compressor does. Then with the fan running hold your hand above the air stream above the AC and if you can noticeablely feel warm to hot air comeing out the Top then the compressor is running also. If the outside unit is not running I would check to make sure the Main Breakers are turned ON.... After the AC has ran for a few minutes feel the copper lines that go into the house the smaller line should feel warm to hot and the bigger lines with insulation on it should feel cool to cold and sweating with beads of moisture on it..... That is a quick test to see if the unit is working properly.....If you have a Thermentor and can Check the Temperature of the Return Air and the Supply Air .. You should have about 20 Degree F Between the Supply and Return........ 75* Return - 55* Supply would Equal 20* TD Across the Coil......
That is about all you can do to check on your own....... If the compressor is not coming on or the lines are not the temperature difference then you will need to get professional help for your Air Conditioning System..... Goood Luck Hope this Helps.........
