Hello again, the units without reset buttons are reset by turning the thermostat OFF, waiting 5 minutes, then turn it back on again, if that fails, turn the power to the AC off at the house breaker panel, wait 5 minutes then turn it back on again. If those measures fail then there are other problems that will required a service call. If you can tell me which direction you are from the center of the nearest city I will see if I can find a well rated service outfit or two for you. .
