My thermostat will not turn the ac on... it was on this

Customer Question
My thermostat will not...

My thermostat will not turn the ac on... it was on this morning and I turned it off now it will not come on and it is 83

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, do you think this is a larger HVAC problem, or something specific to the thermostat?

Thermostat, the a/c is less than two years old and I have had problems setting it in the past

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Resetting it yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Hmm that i do not like this thermostat maybe once I understand it but it is very complicated too many settings

Hello, to reset the thermostat and the entire system turn power off to the furnace/ air handler, wait 10 minutes then turn it back on again, that is called a 'soft reset' if that fail there is something mechanically wrong with the system.

If you have a multi meter electrical tester and some skill with it, I can coach you to a diagnosis
