Hi. I'm Joe and I will be glad to help you out.
Hi Joe, knowing what i've already done, what would you suggest?
On an Ac only outdoor unit, you will only have the 2 low voltage wires, One will be the common, and the other will be the Y at the thermostat, so it sounds like you hooked them back up properly.
The low voltage fuse has probably blown though.
Where is the low voltage fuse? and how do I check to see?
If you switch the fan to on at the thermostat, does the blower come on?
That tells us that we don't have low voltage. If you look inside of the indoor unit, you should see a circuit board, there should be a small blade type fuse plugged into it, just pull it out to see if it's blown.
OK. There was only one blade type fuse in there. It's blue with an E on it. And its completely blown.
Thats the 3 amp fuse. When the wires got pulled out and touched each other it shorted the fuse. Replace the fuse and you should be working again.
Is this a specialty fuse? I immagine that Home Depot/Lowes would carry them.
You can get those about anywhere, auto parts houses, lowes, even most gas stations will carry them. It's just a normal car fuse.
OK. I'm going to go get one right now. Once I get the fuse and install it, is there a sequence to start it, or just turn it on? I'll chat with you momentarily to see if it works.
Just turn the power back on after you install it. It should start right up.
ok, i'll be right back
I'll be here.
Joe, everything is working properly!!!!
Thank you very much
Glad I could help!
