Outdoor AC unit not turning on after blackout.

5 posts in this topic

Hi, we have this model ac036x1021a ac unit. After a blackout during a storm the AC would not go back on. The fan inside the home seems to be blowing air but its not cold and there is no noise on the outside unit and the fan on the outside unit doesnt turn on. We tried to reset the breakers and wait to turn the thermostat back on but no help.

Thanks for any help

Usually going to be a bad capacitor or a contactor. Is there any humming from the compressor and condenser fan motor? If you have a heat pump then your board may have gone out from the power spike.

Seems the breaker wasnt pushed back on all the way. Strange since I put it on and off a few times. Alls well that ends well. Thanx
