Customer Question

I am having a problem with my AC staying running on cool. It may run for an hour with the outside fan/compressor going, but then it will kick of and warm/ambient air will continue to blow. I cant get the outside fan or compressor to turn back on, even after an hour or two.

I'm sorry to hear about your issues with your AC unit. Do you have a voltmeter?

Hi Tim. I do have a voltmeter, but I am still at work right now...
Expert:  Tim H. replied 2 years ago.

OK, because of the nature of this issue, it may be advisable to pick up a digital voltmeter so we can troubleshoot. They can be purchased at most home improvement stores for under $25.
