Customer Question
On my Bryant Model 213C...
On my Bryant Model 213C A/C, I have:
Reset the circuit breaker,
Replaced the fuses,
Replaced thermostat batteries,
Replaced the capacitor,
Replaced the circuit board. Our A/C unit is less than five years old, manufactured in 2013. Every time I've added a part. The A/C will start working again. But then it stops by the next day, and it won't turn back on. Will a clogged drain line cause an A/C to stop working this way? The filter was wet when I changed it, by the way.
