Hello,

If power is present (220v) and control voltage present to condenser...and there is no damage to the communications wire, then it is likely a control board in the outdoor unit.

Very common after voltage issues, storm, etc.....and sometimes is just board failure for no reason.

Please let me know - Usually how much the board replacement costs?
Thanks.
HVAC Technician: Bill, HVAC Technician replied 2 months ago

In the outdoor unit, the thermostat (communication wires) mount on a lower board. This board starts usually with HK***

Can you tell me what that number is ***** this board so I can discern correct series?
