sounds like the sequencer that controls the fan and electric heating elements are sticking causing your unit to not shut down. simple fix

Are you talking about the unit outside or the thing i took a pic of under the crawlspace O_o? Ahh!!!! where is this sequencer located?
If its such a simple fix tell me how to do it!! please!! thanks!

Because the unit outside works fine ( at least i think so ) but the big thing in the crawlspace under the house is what wont shut off even with the outside a/c unit off. ;_;

Sorry im not an expert at terms of hvac components obviously, im just a mear resident of this house. Otherwise if i was an expert i wouldnt be here asking these questions now would I?

Do you have a heat pump or a furnace?

Are you sure the fan switch on the subbase isn't in the "on" position?

You mean the thermostat? No its always set to "AUTO" never since we lived here has it been set to "ON".

and if your talking about the "g" wire no its not touching anything as of now and it the utilites fan would still run.

Yes the air handler in your crawlspace is where your seqencer is located. I know you would like to save a few bucks and that is why you are on here, but may i recomend that you call a pro if you are not sure what you are doing, could save yourself alot of hassle that way.

I probably will just call someone to come out to fix or the least get a free estimate, because I'd rather not electrocute myself for being stupid and not shutting something off the right way and poking around in something high voltage like that.

Ah the one thing i hate about some service calls is some companys do charge like 50 bucks just to come to your house and say "yup its broken, and its gonna cost ya $3,000 to fix it." I usually faint when i hear that part.

But seriously it shouldn't cost much right? I live in Raleigh, NC.

I'm gonna go do a search for a company that offers free estimates before they do any work online right now. I may post back again. If i don't then the problem has probably been fixed.
