Air Conditioner Won’t Turn On
1. Adjust Your Thermostat
2. Head Outside to Evaluate the Coils
3. Check the Fuse
4. Make Sure You Have a Clean Filter
5. If You DO Have a Dirty/Clogged Filter…
You could have a clogged condensate drain line. Use a shop vac to suck out the drain line which is likely near the outside unit, coming out of the wall or sticking out of the ground. Leave it on the line for a bit. You will eventually see sludge, dirt and/or mold in the water inside the shop vac. If it’s too clogged you will need to contact us. We use a special vacuum to suck out the blockage.
6. You May Have a Refrigerant Leak
7. Your Motor May Be on the Fritz
8. Your Thermometer May Need Replaced
