Another No A/c Thread


I moved into a rental 3 months ago. Ranch w/ central a/c. Newer thermostat, round type. Fuse box has a pullout with 2 fuses behind it which are cylindrical paper about 2 inches long and the diamemter of a small cigar. No a/c. No fan comes on, nothing. Any ideas? It's 94 outside lately and last night it was 87 inside with all the windows open and a small oscillating fan in the living room. Help me, I'm melting........

If your thermostat is set and calling for cooling, the indoor (furnace)fan should come on, even if there is something wrong with the outdoor unit. I would look and see if you have a control fuse or transformer problem with your furnace. If the indoor fan is running, then you could probably have no main power to the outdoor ac unit(blown fuses) or possibly a bad contactor coil. Cant really troubleshoot without knowledge on how to use an electrical meter. Hope this helps.

Thanks, Statman. I know as of a week ago, with the last cold night, the furnace worked just fine. When I turn the lever on the thermostat for the fan from auto to on, the fan doesn't come on. The management company also mentioned some type of switch on the wall in the utility room. Sice I'm at work, I guess I'll just have to wait to see what they're talking about.
