It has the condenser pull power and next to that box, a weather sealed box with what looks like a control board. That is what
has the three red lights on it.
Expert:  Charles Bodenheimer replied 13 days ago.
That may be a load control installed by your power company. Does it have two wires going to the Condensor from it? Thanks
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
it does.
Expert:  Charles Bodenheimer replied 13 days ago.
Ok. That's your load control. I've have been on many calls where this was the culprit. You can call your company to come out. Or if you know someone that knows how to bypass the load control until the power co can replace the load control. If you're mechanically inclined those two wires can be wired together to bypass the load control. Make sure the breakers are off to the air handler and Condensor. Send me a pic of the control to be safe. Use the file button to the left of where you type. Thanks
