At the thermostat, put it on "fan only". Go outside to see if the fan is actually working. If not, listen for a humming noise. If there is, it's a bad fan motor. If not working, either bad wire, a wire came off, or bad motor. If it's on, then back to the contact relay. Or maybe the thermostat is turned up too high??


Fan On switch has nothing to do with the outside unit, it controls your blower motor.

Mike, it might just be the start capacitor for the fan motor, when it is humming take a stick and see if you can spin the motor. If it takes off the cap. is bad.

How is the family doing?

If it 's the fan motor going out , than would have kicked out the high press switch, check the free play from side to side on the fan blades to determine if the bearing are shot in the fan motor shaft.
New fan motor , clean the outside coil and you should be Cooool !

If the fuse were blown, the t'stat would be blank. It sounds as if you have a digital thermostat, and if that is the case there will be a built-in time delay until the tstat calls for cooling and the contactor is engergized (usually 5 minutes). Set the tstat to cool and wait the five minutes, if the contactor energizes and all fans come on but no compressor, will require some additional trouble shooting. But if the contactor does not energize, it could be the contactor, or circuit board. Too many variables to try to trouble shoot over the puter.

With the heat, probably recommend you get a tech from the forum to come have a look-see.

Good luck.
