Heil 5000 AC unit
I have a Heil 5000 HVAC system. My compressor is not starting when I set the thermostat to cool. I have manually tripped and reset the breaker and also pulled and reinstalled the disconnect. Is there any type of breaker/ fuse inside the unit itself that could have tripped? I would like to attempt a repair myself prior to calling in a tech. Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Just the compressor not running or neither the compressor or condensor fan? Might have a manual reset high pressure switch. Hot weather makes a lot of capacitors fail, check for bulged housing if you don't have a meter that reads capacitance.

Heil 5000
The furnace fan itself comes on when set to cool, but the exterior unit itself does not fire up, including the fan in it. Any details on what to look for and where would be greatly appreciated. I am pretty good at repairing things, but this is new territory to me.
