The relay is in the A/C or in the control box in the A/C. What is the make and model of your unit? Ceiling or wall mount thermostat?

Hi I'm Wayne

the most cause of this is low Freon,

pressure readings are

then we can go from there

I'm not a mechanic. But, working with one. 2000 workhorse Chasis RV. We replaced the AC compressor since the old one had seized. It isn't getting any power to the compressor. The mechanic says he can't fill the compressor with freon since there is no power to it. We have been looking for a relay switch that might have blown. Can't find one.
Expert:  Wayne replied 2 years ago.

Morning

it won't get any power unless there is Freon in it

tell him to have unit off,put the freon in as liquid ,not gas

and put id a pot of med hot water

it will suck in there fast

also let it sit for 5 minutes before trying to start
