I am not figural with r,c,y and y1. I cannot seem to find those markings on the unit. Is there a way to take a photo and send?
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 3 years ago

The wire go to some kind of control unit (that has the yelow led "trouble" light.
Yellow goes to compressor; black and red go to the control box and blue goes to the contactor
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 3 years ago
ok,
there are many options and it appears you have a surge or quiet alert board. A pic or number off the board would help

The condenser fan unplugs and I have it unplugged at the moment.
The box says Comfort alert
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 3 years ago
got it...I am very familiar with that..how many times is light blinking?
Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
i had to reconnect the fan and when I turned it back on it seems to have stated up and is working. Is it possible that I just had to kill power to reset? the lights were blinking before, however, I can not recall how many licks in each session.now it is running with no lights flashing, just the power on solid
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 3 years ago
The control protects against high pressure , low pressure, short cycling..etc.
I am attaching a link to the guide so if it happens again you will know what is happening and then can address it.
