Customer Question

AC problems. Thermostat works. Furnace fan works. When I am by the condenser, I hear the electrical buzz. And once heard the condenser click, as if trying to start the fan(?), but didn't.

Good morning,Solved the problem on my own.Yes - I had already checked the breaker and fuse.I solved the issue by replacing the run capacitor about an hour after I signed up for "justanswer" service.
Thanks anyway!Please consider refunding some of the money, since we didn't really carry this conversation past the initial introduction.Thanks,
