My AC thermostat shuts off. No numbers show on it ans no way to turn it on. The AC runs then the numbers show but sometimes its hours before anything shows or runs. How do I fix that?

Hi, I'm Tim and I'm an HVAC expert here to assist you with your questions. Please provide all information I request as it makes it more difficult to troubleshoot something when I'm not there onsite. Essentially, you become my eyes and ears. Thanks for the opportunity to help. At the end of our dialog, you will have a chance to rate my service, but please wait until we are finished and you're satisfied you have all the information you need. Please be patient as many times we work with several customers at once.

It may be a bad thermostat, but lets try this: Pull the front part of the thermostat off the wall loose from the back section, remove any batteries, and then replace everything. Let me know if there's any difference.
