Is this on a AV? Also in order to receive a phone call, you must accept offer submitted. But I don't typically answer questions on AV's.

My compressor is not turning on, nor is the fan on the furnace. I changed the batteries in my Honeywell Thermostat, checked the circuit breakers, inside and outside (actually a plug out side on the box that pulls out)
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
This is NOT on and AV, sorry, I meant AC compressor

Let me know if you still need help with this.Troubleshooting often requires meters and test equipment.Do you have a multi meter for testing voltage? If not you can get an inexpensive one at Walmart for about 15 bucks, if you have or would like to obtain a meter to troubleshoot , I will be happy to guide you.Without a meter , there are a limited number of things we can check if you are able to do a visual inspection and can do some hands on troubleshooting.Please let me know and we can go from here.
