Questions you might consider asking
  • My handler comes on, but the compressor won't start up. I've done such things as switch the circuit breaker, flip the switch on the handler and change the batteries out in the thermastat. When I try and crank it up, the fan seems like it's about to come on, then makes a struggling sound.
  • I have an Amanda a/c AP148DS and will not turn on. I checked the circuit breaker and wall outlet and there is power. I also verified that the reset button on the plug was pushed in
  • Our air conditioner isn't working and our trane thermostat is blank. Our home is only 5 months old! Help! We already checked the circuit breaker.
