Hello, can you hear the inside blower running? if so, and no air coming out of the vents, then the cooling coil is iced over.

If that is that is the case the fattest copper tube attached to the cooling coil and also to the outside unit will be iced or frosty.

Look that over, we can go from there without any time limits.

I am here, juggling 5 different customers and doing research and typing answers for each, sometimes that takes time.

I did get your response.

If no air or very little air is coming from the vents, the coil is iced, you will need to shut it down for about 3 hours with the blower running and wait for the ice to melt..

that said however, get right back to me with a report on what you think of that.
