My Carrier 21000 BTU air conditioner (model YCB213E built in 1996) has always worked perfectly until yesterday. When I pushed the red button to turn it on - nothing happened.

>> Check your transformer voltages SECOND.

mating surfaces before REASSEMBLY...

My Carrier thermostat screen shuts down for 10 seconds and then comes back.
If it's like mine (and lots of others, I sold Carrier), the little door covering the controls at the bottom gets "tired" and doesn't close all the way.

Obviously there are other problems that may be causing it, ut that's the simplest one to check. tape it tight and see
