Customer Question

One of my AC units is not working. I have changed the batteries, emptied the little waterrun off thing. And i changed the circuit breaker out because every time i pushed it back to "on", the circuit breaker would trip. Ialso reset the time on the thermostat.

Hello, tell me how long it took for the breaker to trip when you turned the unit on, instantly or after the unit had run for a few seconds or an hour or longer. You will need a clamp around type amp meter to assist in the diagnosis. $25 at Harbor Freight or $50 at home depot or lowes. Let me know, we can go from there.
