Home AC

I just got home, 10pm here, and found my house was a nice warm 81. Looked in the AC closet, everything was froze. Turned everything off, tripped all the breakers, even the outside breaker. It's defrosting, slowly, and I've read you could turn on the fan to speed it up. I turned the fan to on, but it doesn't come on. Will it have to completely unfreeze? Did it burn the motor up? Any advice is appreciated.

Oh, I'm thinking it's probably low on freon, we keep the filters cleaned, and even clean the coils inside with one of those firm baby bottle cleaners. I replaced the fan last summer, and haven't really had any problems. I'm hoping to replace this unit come tax time.

Home AC

hmm, could it be the fan? I turned the AC back on and the thermostat clicked on, but the fan didn't come on. I cut everything off, and cut the breakers off, and made sure it wasn't frozen up (lol, the fan that is). Seemed to turn fine, little bit of water dripped down, so don't want to take any covers off, will let the ac guy do that. Any other ideas?

Thats why the unit froze up, because the blower quit. Could be a number of things. Need to check and make sure you have power to your furnace or air handler, which ever one you have. Maybe a bad blower motor or fan relay or circuit board, or numerous other things. Also check to make sure the blower door is fastened securely to the furnace, (saftey switch).
