Thanks for the information,Next I need to know if the unit that sits outside is on and running or not. We can go from there.

We have about 5 splits in the house and they seem to be connected to 2 unit that sits outside, I believe they are both on and running but the unit in my room is not cooling. There is a green light that comes on when it is working OK but that light won't come on and the timer light continues to indicate as the unit won't work.

Hello again, thanks for the information.The problem is with the printed circuit board or the thermistor (temperature sensor) attached to the cooling coil the unit in your room. The chance that is the case are in the 90% range. There is about a 5% chance that replugging all of the connectors in your unit will solve the problem... there is another 5% chance that the solenoid valve that allows refrigerant flow from the unit outside to the unit in your room is defective. This is not something that more than 1 in several hundred home owners could fix themselves, if you that that is the case in your situation, tell me which direction you are from the center of the nearest city and I will see if I can find a list of well rated companies that might take a service call on the unit. (not a lot of companies have men trained to work on those). Let me know, we can go from there. I am off to bed shortly, if you miss me tonight I will pick your response up first thing in the morning. .

Hello again,
Call these people, ask them to connect you to their nearest office.

These are the largest in the area, and most likely best able to fix your particular air conditioner.
Give them a call, let me know how it goes.
