Russ here. Turn unit to cool and go outside and listen to see if compressor and fan try to start. Feel top of motor to see if it is hot. If they do not go inside and check the float switch on the inside unit. It is located in the drain line from unit. It will have 2 wires coming from it. Just pull off top and see if water is in switch. Russ
