a/c not coming on

Dear sirs.
I woke up this morning to the a/c unit not blowing cold air. I looked outside to see if it was frozen & the unit was not running, but air was blowing inside. What could be the problem? one website said it could be connectors, wiring, condensor dirty. Please help, I live in south Texas.

Check the breaker feeding the outside unit. It could be tripped. Check the disconnect box at the outside unit --- sometimes there are fuses in there.

Had any yardwork done lately? Maybe weedwhacked the low voltage wiring.

I take it the condensor has frozen up in the past? Could be a leak, out of gas.

Contactor coil burnt and not pulling in.

Blown capacitor?

Just because you can, doesn't always mean you should

If you are comfortable with electricity see if there is power to the unit with a multimeter. Check both the low voltage at the high voltage. If you are not comfortable with electricity then call in a professional.


My idea of a perfect day: No where to go and all day to get there.
